We went to a family picnic for an alumni organization I am in. They had food, face painting, games, and bounce houses. It was small and so much fun.

Sweet Daughter wanted a cat painted on her face.

How cute is this? It was hot and the paints didn't run. This was done in the morning and it lasted all day, yet came off easily in the shower. 

Sweet Son was more interested in blowing bubbles on a windy day.

I hear stories that everyone takes photos of their children sleeping. It's such a sweet time. They are so quiet and peaceful... and then there are my kids.

Um... Where is Sweet Daughter? That's not where her bed is supposed to be. Her favorite blanket is missing.

Oh, of course. She is crammed in a corner between the dresser and wall. Too bad she doesn't have a bed and a room to spread out in.

Am I the only one who thinks they should sleep in their beds instead of on the floor?

Awww, they fell asleep together - still on the floor though.

Ok, well one of them is on a bed. And look how nicely Snoopy is tucked in on the floor.

She said she sleeps better if someone is watching her. I'm trying not to over analyze that. She is asleep and on her bed, that's a win in my book.

Wordless Wednesday

They dress themselves with no help.

Here he is wearing tennis shoes, pinstripe dress pants, a short sleeve white dress shirt, and a vest. She is wearing tennis shoes, black sweat pants, a black Harley shirt, and a black sweat band. The contrast made me burst out laughing so we had to get a picture.

Spring Festival, part 2

This is a continuation of yesterday's post. Today I will show just a few of the games and art projects they had set up for the kids.

Quarter Pitch

Boom Blaster

Ring on the Bottle

These are all free so when we do go to a fair or amusement park we don't even bother. That saves a lot of money.

Painting boot flower pots

Making picture frames (with the flower pots and flowers in front)

This was their favorite part.
Inside Daddy's office there is a room that the walls are dry erase.

The kids honestly think Daddy just plays all day at work. Wait untill they find out about the mini golf course, baseball field, air hockey, video game room, ping pong, etc. Yes, his office really does have all of those.  No wonder he likes his job so much.
