Fun in the Spring Sun

The weather over the weekend was totally amazing! It was nearly 80 degrees. Historically it rains every year just in time for the Daffodil parade, so this year we were thrilled to get out there and enjoy the parade without being wet and chilled to the bone.

The girls really had fun. They clutched on to each other as the pirates came by shooting a cannon... but eventually became more adventurous and laid as close to the edge of the road as possible... they really wanted to be part of the action. Olivia even got brave enough to run out into the middle of the road to join one of the marching bands. It would have been a cute photo, too bad I was sprinting out there to drag her back to the side as she snickered at me. She keeps me on my toes.

We came home and just could not get ourselves to go inside... we had lunch outside, Tucker ate what we left on our plates, and then we began our sidewalk art project. It cracks me up, the girls insist on being traced with chalk and then they color themselves in. It ended up looking somewhat like a gingerbread man crime scene when we finished!

Oh the fun of sidewalk chalk! Love that last picture, she even brought her ponies out to play!
