See, summer isn't SO bad.
Especially, if it affords you the chance to hang out half the day in a tree, with one of your best pals at your side.
Or, you know, a little closer to the ground, if you're the mama, and your best pal is a mama too.
And when it's all said and done, and you've got your dry clothes on and all the sand toys unloaded from the car, and you've had waffles for dinner, it feels pretty nice to put a little summer down on paper too.
Just so you'll never forget what it felt like to be way up high, like a superhero.
They're pretty pricey, but they are SO cool! I have been known to play with them myself after the boys have been long tucked into their beds.
You just color with them, like you would with regular crayons, and then you wet a paint brush and blend the color.
It took a little experimenting (for example, we learned that they work much better on actual watercolor paper), but once we got the hang of it, there's been no stopping the painting fun.
I hope your weekend is filled with lots of colorful adventure too!
