Spending Time: Painting
One of me resolutions this year was to spend more time outside. With schedules everywhere, so many things changing in the past couple months, it's been hard to "make time" for quality time with the babes. Let's face it, a lot times it's just easier to stay in the house, try to clean and cook and just make it until bedtime. Some days our house is definitely like that! I don't want every single day to be like that though.
Weve done a few things to help push us outside this summer. We have flowers we're trying to keep alive that need watering nightly which turns into plenty of time outside. Emily loves taking her watering can and NOT watering the flowers but watering the the drive way! 😂 Like-come one, babe. Haha. I picked up a little pool and umbrella at Target for our backyard and Emily is obsessed already. Little things here and there!
This evening I had picked up a couple things so I could surprise Emily with a little painting session outside on our deck! She was super excited and had such a fun time. I'm not sure why I thought she would simply sit and paint the canvas but of course that didn't happen the whole time. Haha. Em eventually wanted to paint my hands, feet, and face along with her own. She decided it'd be a good idea to paint her turtle sandbox, too!
