Fun with Paint

Finally we had a weekend where we got to have a little fun with little Miss Avery AND I remembered that I had a camera! It was so pretty out so we decided to be a little artistic. The weather was so nice so we went out back, sat at the picnic table, brought out the paints, paper, and brushes, put on paint clothes, and for two days in a row became artists! Colors, and paper, Concentration and careful strokes made for frame worthy artwork! (At least in Nonnas eyes) So we painted and painted. The little dog next door didnt seem to enjoy the fact that we were out back as much as we were enjoying it. Avery walked over to the fence to see what all the noise was about. Then back to her masterpiece. We had fun watching her paint and hearing her say "I love blue" or "I love yellow". She loved dipping her brush in the water and swishing it around rinsing it and making the water turn colors. (Especially her favorite - PINK)When she decided her artwork was just as it should be Nonna had another idea. So she helped me spruce up my picnic table by painting it with a larger brush and using the water we rinsed the brushes in. She like that too.
I want her to have memories of doing fun and different things at our house. We dont have horses or 4 Wheelers or lots of things that lots of others have. But what we do have is FUN so I want to make sure we have fun when Avery is with us.

Painting with old Cool Whip bowls is da bomb! When I was growing up, my grandparents had a gravel driveway and we loved playing in the rocks with spoons and old butter and Cool Whip bowls. Life was simple then.

Mine love sidewalk chalk, bubbles, the Riverwalk, the Trace, etc. Simple things make the memories. I remember the time spent with my grandmothers, not the money spent. :)
