April 22nd

Another lovely day today. It was a wonderful 84* out. Not humid or scorchingly hot…the breezes were cool, but the sun was deliciously warm. So please……can anyone tell me what is wrong with this picture???  The girl has 2 shirts on!!!

I am also excited to report that the last cold snap/snow fall did not kill my tulips, just stunted them a bit. Here they are in all their gorgeous glory!~

Not bad for a $2.49 box of tulip bulbs at Aldi.

The daughter and I sat last night and did our toenails together.  This is something that we do just about every Saturday evening during the spring and summer.  It has become a lovely tradition…..bonding over toes.   What are some things that you bond with your kiddos over?

  1. The girl does seem to be dressed rather warmly, like she was in Alaska or somewhere. How’s she doing anyway?

    My kids and I bond while cooking, they also do this with dad. My daughter and I like to learn to do crafts together and the son and I like to discuss stuff. Some times deeply.

  2. When DH goes out on his evening hockey games the girls and I make popcorn and watch a real “girlie movie” together. Last week it was “The Importance of Being Earnest”

  3. My boys and I did our bonding by making homemade bread.They both liked to make bread. They enjoyed the kneading part the best. They didn’t like it when my dad got us a breadmaker. We hardly ever use it. The boys weren’t too fond of toenail painting!

  4. When I you daughter’s size (yes in my adult years!), I was freezing all the time. There wasn’t enough meat on the bones to keep them warn. LOL

    I’ll have to think about the other parts. 😀
