The first activity we did was silk tie-dying. Madison and I both made one. It had been years since I had done any tie-dying so we had a short little tutorial from a volunteer and then the rubber band tieing began!
And then Madison dyed both of our silk scarves.
TADAAA!!! They turned out awesome! I kinda wanted to do some more, but Madison was ready to move onto the next activity.
The next activity that Madison did was painting on a wall that was available to the kids to paint on. It was super awesome. It was a series of 8 panels attached around a large oak tree. The kids were allowed to pick out 3 different colors and paint whatever they wanted. Madison ended up painting a simple smiley face and a heart. I added "All you need is love". I found it very appropriate for the day. I think I may frame the picture.....kinds summed everything up.
Oh, look who woke up!
And.....she's out again!
And 20 minutes later....we're awake. I mean, seriously, can this kid look any more like her dad? Closing her eyes in pictures and all! And look how white this white girl is! I may need to pull a crazy mom move like the moms on Toddlers and Tiaras and give her a spray tan....or NOT! My baby is perfect just the way she is!
Before we left, we got a couple pictures of the girls together by the pumpkins. We didn't end up buying any. Cause they were $10! Geez!! I know someone selling them for $3....we'll go there!
Oh....and to keep with the animal theme we've had lately, Layla wore a cure little lamb outfit.
