Summer Fun

The weather this summer has been unbelievably beautiful and we have been spending as much time as possible before it really heats up. Last week we made some sidewalk paint using water, corn starch and food coloring, something different than the usual sidewalk chalk. I have a ton of small sponge paintbrushes that I bought at Michael's super cheap and we put them to use. The colors do not dry as vibrant as they are in the pan, but they still have a neat finish. Sadly, an hour after we finished outside it started storming and all of their painting was washed away. 

 The two little princesses are still constantly running around in their princess dresses. They love wearing them outside and pretending their climber is their castle. They have also figured out their Crazy Coupe cars make great stools to talk be peeping toms on the neighbors. Actually, they spend a lot of time chatting with the little boy next door through the cracks in the fence, they just wanted a better view.
 We are only a month into the summer and I would say it is a safe bet that we have been in the water in some form or another at least once a week, usually more. We've visited several pools, turned the sprinkler on in our back yard, had squirt gun fights and water balloon fights. The temperatures have not been unbearably hot yet, but the water still feels great.
