Long Day

It's been such a long day.

Nephew's Birthday

Went to my nephews birthday party. Great weather. Cookout, outside style favorite. We can't have those with A's winter birthday timing. 

A and J struck up a little basketball. Which A has not really played before. Probably why she thinks they should each have a ball to be fair.

Nicely done for not ever shooting it up that high before.

OH yeah, she's all smug about that one.

Globetrotter in the making for sure !

Why is it the birthday boy is the one on the bottom of the pile being tickled beyond belief and apparently being dragged. Being drug. Whatever !

They recently got the cutest little 11 week old Rottie. She's so sweet.

The puppy just put her head down, otherwise they had just been cheek to cheek. I missed it.

Easter Egg Hunt

Much nicer this year for our Easter Egg Hunt than last year's cold and rainy.

Easter Cookies

A- requested cut out sugar cookies for Easter. Cutting out and decorating is always so much fun doing these. Messy.....yes but fun.

Easter Bunny

Haven't been on here for awhile. Just been busy, busy, busy !

We did manage to visit the Easter Bunny and we ran into A's friend while there, so we had to do the photo again with both girls. Too cute !

Watching all the kids there each have their turn with the Bunny, I am so surprised at how much scarier and timid they are of the bunny as opposed to Santa.

Painting with Friends

It's been really busy around here lately, with business stuff and taxes. So nothing fun. Not much to post about. So I thought I'd at least share a few pictures of A- having fun with friends. We do have soccer, tee-ball, summer rec, summer reading program and swimming lessons all just around the corner. So I'm sure you'll be flooded with pictures soon enough. Enjoy my silence while it lasts, it does not happen often. 

Play dough is so nice when you can do it outside !

Trying out some new driveway paint.

The paint isn't the best in the world, but it's certainly a great cheap washable way for kids to have fun. 

I mixed up 4 colors, and then they mixed them from there on the driveway to create other colors. 

Each bowl consists of 1 cup of cornstarch, 3/4 cup water. Mix until smooth (will be thick at first). Add food coloring and stir until you reach your desired color. paint dries a little lighter than it looks. If the paint sits too long, you will need to stir it up occasionally. 

Rain or the hose will wash it off easily. This paint is okay, not the greatest. Anyone have a good recipe or store bought version?

Flop House

What a sleepy day. Both dogs were sleeping until they heard me. Neither bothered to move obviously, just opened their eyes to see what I was doing.
