Painting the sidewalk

Yesterday we needed a little bit of outside fun and I had promised the boys that they could paint. My friend Lisa, about a week ago, suggested painting on the sidewalk and washing it off. So....that is what we did. I decided to leave it instead of washing it off because I think the boys would have been heartbroken if Daddy didn't get to see what they did. They thought it was so silly to paint the sidewalk. Collin is yelling "PAINTING" for the camera. ( It sounded more appropriate a command than "cheese".) He just looks angry.LOL!
I think it is interesting how they claimed their paint plate immediately. I was encouraging them to mix colors and use all three colors too, but they were pretty loyal to the initial color they had chosen.
Noah did go for some purple, blue and yellow. Collin eventually added yellow to his red. They were so proud of their work and couldn't wait to show Daddy. FYI Tempra paint came off the Crocs with hot soapy water and a tiny bit of elbow grease!:)

Hi there, I just saw through Twitter that your son is in the hospital with pneumonia... I just wanted you to know that my now 4 year old had a bad case on pneumonia last year, (when he was 3 years old) and was in the children's hospital for two long weeks. He had a very bad case, and even required surgery to drain fluid from his lung. Easy and quick surgery, but still, we were totally freaking out. After 4 days, the tube was taken out and he recovered quickly after that. Seeing him with an oxygen mask, IV, etc. was painful, though. We all just prayed really hard... it is common for young kids to get pneumonia, which was a total shock to me. Just wanted you to know that I've been there... stay strong... and I hope your little one gets better really soon!
