I ordered a bunch of headboards for all the beds in our house, which all came in these HUGE boxes. So what better to do with huge boxes than paint them??
We started out with dot paints and paint brushes which quickly turned in to finger/hand/foot painting with paint EVERYWHERE.
Jacky really just wanted to dump all the paint out and mix the colors together. Basically destroy the paints and make a huge mess. :)
Big messes require hose downs which cause puddles which make for even BIGGER messes. But lots more fun, obviously.
Even if a certain little two year old does not particularly like having messy hands...
Some days I get glimpses of what this little girl is going to look like when she's older, and I wonder where my little toddler has gone. She's been replaced by this little beauty.
Overall, a fun messy summer activity that ended with a very clean, soapy rug, and a midday bath for two little munchkins. :)
Apparently there has been some trouble viewing this blog on an ipad/iphone, so I'm testing something out to see if this helps fix the problem. We will see!!
May and June FLEW by. We spent some evenings at the playground, when it was no longer too hot, and we often had the place all to ourselves!
Jackson has changed so dramatically over the last two months, he is hardly the same kid! He talks a LOT now. He is so so happy and funny and just the best little boy. His new developments deserve a whole post/update of their own!
I was out at a photo shoot and daddy came up with the idea to combine our inflatable pool with our slide, which led to hours of fun on the water slide. Riley is fearless, and went down over and over and over again. Jackson needed a little more convincing, but eventually went down!
My laptop died last week, which makes it even harder for me to be good about updating this blog, because I always did it on my laptop, but I do have a pretty awesome desktop computer that I suppose I should use more often, so I'm going to try my best!!
What do you do when you are on your laptop which only has iphone pictures, and you realize you REALLY need to update your blog with SOMETHING?? Iphone snaps, of course!!
APRIL: Full of awesome outfits, walruses, cool little dudes, Elsa, being pregnant, soccer, cuddles, and very strange sleeping habits. The usual.
MAY: Cool hair and finger tricks, car ride twinsies, breakfast with princesses, playing outside, selfies, and more sleeping. A certain 3 year old has been napping a lot lately. :)
