Art Appreciation

Our afternoon was a mess (literally!)

What started as a nice, civilized session of finger painting quickly deteriorated into full contact body painting.

There was lots of laughter (especially from Mommy). Let's just hope they don't try this at Preschool next week!

Thank heavens for my baby pool, the best $8 I've ever spent!

Does this count as a bath?

Hooray for Summer!!!

Looks like they were having a great time. They took creativity to a whole new level!

Those pictures are great! Definitely a good idea to do this outside in the summer, so you could just stick them in the pool. What a smart mom!

HAAA How adorable. How good of you to let them make messes, those are the memories. Good for you!!!
I love seeing them and what they are up too everyday. Are they going to all be in the same preschool class?? I was curious about that. I bet you will enjoy some time to replentish? I am excited for you.

I love it..... It looks like they were having as much fun as Thomas was the other day when I let him have a messy marvin day, he had a blast.... our "mess" was orange jello pressing it between his fingers and putting it in his hair..... kids need to have a messy day.......

I was thinking that chocolate pudding might be even more fun!!!!

Good CLEAN fun! Too cute!!

My kids LIVE in their pool in their diapers. Sometimes I feel like such hillbillies, but it's the coolest thing.

days like these make up for moments like the grocery fiasco. Focus - Focus!

they look like they had a blast.

looks like great fun. and a great photo opportunity! i haven't even ventured into the finger painting yet b/c of the messiness. (i know, my poor, deprived children). but i like the pool idea for cleaning!

ADORABLE. I don't know if I would have had the patience to let my girls do that when they were little-and they were 2 years apart! You are a great mom and I love the photos you include.

I absolutely love your blog. The pictures take me back to when my children were young and the funny things they did (and still do!). Thanks for sharing your family's life with us!
