This morning we walked down to our neighborhood park to do some chalk drawings. It was a community sponsored event where you could sign up for some designated sidewalk space, draw a picture of whatever you wished and then hope your name gets picked for a prize.
We were given designated spaces 54 and 55. Some of the artists given spaces in the 1 to 10 range looked like they had been hard at work all morning. They were creating amazing masterpieces out of regular old sidewalk chalk. Once again, I failed to take pictures of the tiger, dragons and snail-like creatures that caught my eye and instead took them of our squares.
We played at the playground for a little bit and we ran into one of Kamryn’s classmates from school. Kamryn was really excited not only because she likes her classmate, Kyle, but because Kyle has one of the cutest little baby brothers, Lance. Kamryn has had the baby crazies for the last couple of months and it is largely due to seeing Lance nearly everyday at drop off and pick up at school.
When we were on our way home, I asked Kamryn what her favorite part of chalk drawing was (knowing full well what the answer was going to be). She got a big smile on her face and shouted, “Lance!”
At least now I know all I have to do to ensure Kamryn’s happiness is seek out a baby that she can ooooh and aaaah over for a few minutes.
That chalk drawing event sounds like a great idea 🙂
James and I went to the park too… it was in the 80’s and he got all sweaty and stinky LOL I’d also bought him his first watch earlier in the day – it was a cheap and cheerful $3 Transformers watch from Blockbuster but he’s thrilled with it. I even took a picture with my phone and uploaded it to Facebook LOL
Now, of course, he keeps saying things like… “Daddy… it’s four oh nine… wait,no, now it’s four ten…” LOL
