Sidewalk Chalk and Much, Much More!

Pat and I had a DELIGHTFUL, KID-FREE weekend! We spent Friday night celebrating Ian's 8th grade graduation. What an exciting time. Unfortunately I was still a little under the weather, so I didn't get to fully enjoy Valle Luna (my all time favorite Mexican food restaurant), but I did get to enjoy a few bites of Mexican pizza and Bean Dip. YUM! The rest of the weekend was full of activities with both friends and family.
This morning, I was surprisingly energized after having the weekend to myself, that I even let the kids experiment with sidewalk chalk. We live in a REALLY quiet neighborhood, so I should really spend more time out front, but I am just so worried that Tyler is going to bolt into the street that we spend most of our time indoors or in the backyard. However, there were no escapees, and both kids had a great time trying all the different pieces of chalk to see what they would look like on the cement. Tyler loves flowers, and as much as I don't NEED another chatterbox in this house, I am desperate for her to speak more, so I will do just about anything to hear her say the few words that she knows.
