Check, Check, and Check

We've been checking a few more things off of our Summer List lately. Sidewalk Chalk Paint, a day trip to Boone, and playing in the rain!

The sidewalk chalk paint was really fun and easy (thanks Pinterest). Just mix cornstarch, water, and food coloring and you're done.
Before we began
Slinging Paint
And taking a break to look at the sales paper.
My smiley face, Lilly-Belle's lines, and Colson said his was Jesus on the cross.

Last weekend we took a trip to Boone, NC so we could show the children the home of their future college, Appalachian State University! :)

We ate a delicious lunch at Our Daily Bread.

Then visited campus for a photo-op at The Rock.

Did a bit of shopping at the Tanger Outlets and played in the park in Blowing Rock while we ate icecream from Kilwins.

It was a great day trip.

Then yesterday we took advantage of the rain showers and did a bit of playing in the rain. Well, the kids played and I sat on the steps and sipped coffee.

Our list is getting shorter and shorter, but then so is our summer. About a month left, then it's back to school!


  1. I think I'm going to have to make some of that paint before school starts so Isabella and the neighbor kids can play with it. They would go nuts with it.

  2. That paint looks fun...may have to do that this weekend!

  3. I love the picture of Lilly-Belle taking a newspaper break! So cute!


Go ahead and know ya' wanna!
