Sidewalk chalk... best when wet.

Whoa, Nellie! Get ready... This child is cute-iful.

(ode to Poppa!).

It was a dreary kind of day... had just finished raining and it was steamy hot!
But dadgummit, we had not been outside yet, and well, that is just kind of our after work DEAL!

So, out it was!
I had no idea that wet concrete makes colored chalk that much more vivid.

I honestly think I liked it more than the girls.

Ellie just really wasn't feelin' it! I have no idea why.

Gabbi Girl, on the other hand, was DIGGIN' marking on the concrete, as well as her face and cute dress.
It is all about the memories, though, right? ANd this memory is Ellie doesn't feel like using chalk, on the concrete, when it's sprinkling, without a popsicle.

Just sayin'.
Ok, Ellie I guess we'll be seeing you. You heading inside?
Gabbi and I will be out here soaking up all this colorful wonderfulness if you need us!
Hope to post again later tonight or early tomorrow. Sorry for the delay. Was out of town for the night last night, celebrating Staci Leanne's 37th birthday which is TODAY!

More on my OLD little sister tomorrow.

Happy B Day, Sis.

Sidewalk chalk and bubbles - nothin' better than that!
Gabbi's dress is just adorable - is it from Staci's shop? Ellie looks pretty darn cute too of course.
Happy Birthday to Staci!

Happy Birthday Staci! Of course it probably isn't your birthday anymore. But it's the wish that counts, right? May God Bless you even more in the years to come!
