So nothing is going to get accomplished in my house today! Between blogging and spending the day outside with the boys, I just don’t have time for anything else today…hehehe! Sometimes “we” as moms, need a break. Although, having two kids with you all day is not an easy task in and of itself, it’s easier when you decide not to do any house chores. Okay, well… basically none. Just no rushing around today, a day of relaxation and enjoying a day outdoors with my boys!
This afternoon I decided to grab a blanket, some chalk (random I know but stay with me), load the boys up to go to chick fil A for lunch and take them to the gazebo for a nice afternoon picnic. We ate lunch on a blanket and covered the sidewalk in the most artistic drawings any 3yr old has ever produced!
For my dinosaur lover, I had to draw T-REX foot prints and Brachiosaurus footprints (which I did not photograph because they were awful). This kid made me google the different print shapes…high maintenance I tell you. Anyways, it was well worth it. He must have kept jumping back and forth between prints for 15-20min. While he did that, I drew a bunch of shapes in different colors so he could play a shapes and colors game. The shapes and colors game was a little too young for him since he has known them for a while but he really enjoyed jumping from shape to shape and teaching his little brother! So, even if it was a little young for him, we still made it work for at least another 10-15min!
My little nugget wanted in on the fun! He wasn’t interested in drawing, only taking all the colors away from his big brother :).
All in all, it has been a pretty great, relaxing day with my boys…Just jinxed it!
