After a cancelled play date,
due to a snow storm,
Whereby we literally got stuck, in the car, in a white out,
With one crying and very disappointed five year old sitting in the back seat,
Creativity came a calling.
What better way to clear the mind of the arctic blast that was taking place outside, then to bring the sights and feel of the sandy beach inside..
Enter: sea shells and paint.
Mission Accomplished: One happy camper.
(Make that two happy campers, as in between painting, this enthusiastic mama was thrilled to try out one of the new lenses with her
And what might my trooper of a husband, sporting shorts in 20 degree weather, be doing here?
Indulging his wife, by putting Lucy's gingerbread house out for the birds. Do you see it?
I was told it was a great way to "recycle." All I can think about is, birds? squirrels? in my back yard? eating the gingerbread house? Sounds like a chance for some great photo opps, dont'cha think?
So far, no luck, though. See the tracks below? That's all I've gotten so far.
But I'm still watching! Camera in hand!
So, moral of the story: When house bound by mother nature, bring out the beach. A sure win every time!
