Playing with Sidewalk Chalk

I'm feeling a lot better today, just really exhausted and tired, maybe my body is still fighting something.  But hey, it's getting warmer out, think it's actually going to be 70 this weekend!  Rainy, but still 70.  Gotta look on the bright side.


Took Lucy outside so we could practice our drawing skills, but I think we got more on ourselves than on the sidewalk.

My Lucy is two, but she sometimes acts like she is twenty-two, little miss thing.

It's nice to actually be able to take off the winter hat and finally let the spring breezes blow through the hair.

Yup, spring is coming, very slowly, but it's coming.

  6. We love sidewalk chalk! Wonderful captures. I really like the colors and texture you captured with the sidewalk chalk and the black and white is beautiful. Love your spring capture! Beautiful Robin. We are just starting to hear the sounds of birds around here. There are still a few snow banks, but hopefully we're at the beginning of spring now! Thank you for lining up with us for Theme Thursday's A Touch of Spring.

  16. Side walk chalk is a God sent!! they love to draw with it! and i think most kids get more on themselves then any place else and that's okay!! she is adorable, even with chalk as make-up!

  18. Lovely. I love spring, and you really captured it. When I was little, I used to love getting chalk all over my hands and then washing it off...calling the water "magic" for how easily it washed all the dust off my hands. Don't kids make the greatest subjects? I love your pictures of Lucy. Good job.
