These amazing baskets are from Target and even have handy little chalkboard labels already attached ot them in case you don't know what you put inside. As you can see, that's not really an issue for us!
Our dining room opens right out to the deck, so even though it may look like a more formal space, in a house with three kids under 5, every space is a kid space.
The kids love to ride bikes and scooters, and our deck provides them a safe spot to do just that. I try to avoid them running into our diy patio garden, or our new bougainvillea, but other than that, there are good to go.
