What a busy day. My girls spent the afternoon with me today. That means I don't get much done but have a great time with the girls. After catching up on a couple of their favorite TV shows, we eventually moved our tables out to the front porch since it wasn't as humid today to get some fresh air and do a little coloring and stitching. The girls played pretend shopping when they first got outside pushing around a wooden wheelbarrow and plucked leaves and flowers as they went around the yard. After awhile, they tired of shopping and ended up at their respective tables for a little art time.
Raleigh seemed to enjoy playing with her bubblegum more than she did her coloring. We love to spend time on the porches but it seems our summers are so hot and humid that we don't get to enjoy them as much. So when a rare less humid summer day happens, you have to jump at the chance to enjoy it. My girls seem to be afraid of bugs and had quite a few screaming episodes when some poor bug flew into their territory. I told them they were going to scare the bugs away just with their screaming. Or else some neighbor was going to call the police because they were making so much noise! We had the perfect ending to our day by celebrating with popsicles. Nothing like a popsicle on a hot summer day! As the saying goes, always have popsicles at Grandma's house!
