Smurf

Madi, Ashlyn & I took advantage of a little sunshine and two napping babies and headed outdoors. I broke out a new box of sidewalk chalk and the girls came up with some mighty fine modern art - I just hope that someday my daughter will be able to at least draw a circle :) Of course, Madi had to have the pink chalk and Ashlyn had to have the blue chalk - thank goodness they don't have the same favorite color.

Madi got quite a coughing spell so we had to cut it short, coming back inside after a meager 15 minutes. And since my daughter can't do anything without making a mess of herself, this was inevitably the end product of our little outdoor retreat:

That last picture of Ashlyn CRACKS me up!!! Ashlyn will start drawing amazing murals one day soon... art runs in the fam... unless Brian isn't artistic then you might be out of luck there.

We love sidewalk chalk and bubbles for those days you just want to go out on the porch and relax.

Oh dang. I always forget to check the blogs when they're private. LOL. I think chalk is such a fun toy for kids. At least if they get messy, it's easy to clean off. And yes, the circles will come soon, enough... She's SO cute.
