Well, Reader Friends, it is yet another beautiful spring day here in Texas. I've got green grass, blue skies, butterfly (I've only seen one), 70 degree weather, and lots of purple flowers. Horray for Spring!
Our family has been making it a point to spend as much time outside as possible. So we've invested in lots of bubbles, sidewalk chalk, and we even built a fire pit. Here are pictures of our good times :)
This is Tot drawing with her chalk and simultaneously annoying Bear. He could not understand what she was doing, why she would do it, or why he couldn't eat it. He did make a valient effort to lick the chalk off, but we swatted him enough that he stopped. His efforts made Tot decided that chalk might taste good, and she started to nibble on a stick, but again, we swatted her and she stopped. After the tastings, they played quite well together.
One of Tot's favorite songs to sing is from The Backyardigans called "Surf's Up". So this is her and David (who is trying to surf and smoke a cigar) picnic table surfing while they sing "Surf's Up, Surf's Up, Whoa Daddy....Wipe Out!". The best part is, is that she even wiggles her hips like she's surfing. SO hilarious.
This is Little David's very first sliding experience. Well, actually this is his third. The first two he cried so I didn't think I would post those pictures. They're quite sad :) But reagardless of his skeptical beginnings, he learned to love it and started to laugh a lot and jump around (which makes holding on to him very difficult).
And last, but certainly not least, here is our brand new, home made fire pit! I hope you all enjoy your week and get to spend lots of time outside!
