Chalk Fun and Froggy Friends!

Today we enjoyed some beautiful sunshine before the rain headed our way! On top of the normal not so fun school work as the kids call it haha we went outside and did chalk art for our arts and crafts part of the day.
We had a contest to see who could draw the biggest best dinosaur after reading about dinosaurs! My oldest son Aidan drew a dinosaur with a long neck like we read about in the book!
The kids traced each other with chalk and made shadow images of each other.
And of course my youngest son who I'm going to start calling "frog boy" knows just where to find frogs! He seriously walks out the door and it's like he "smells" the frogs and finds them! So he found a little buddy who sat there with him on his lap while he drew art! He sure is going to miss those frogs when we move!
I just can't believe how he gets them and gets them to just chill and sit on his lap! It's so crazy to me!
We've also had a little bunny camping out in our back yard the last few days. Every morning we
find it under the pic nic table and she will run away when you get to close (yes my kids did try
to catch her lol) then she will come back later in the day!
We also had a really fun snack today that was a hit for the most part but my oldest son doesn't
care for strawberries. I would've liked it to be a little sweeter but it was pretty good!
Olivia Strawberry Smoothie
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup ice
1 tbsp dry milk powder
2 pink marshmallows
chocolate sprinkles
Combine first four ingredients in blender.
To make ears cut two thin slices cross ways from a marshmallow.
Pour smoothie into a glass. Place large marshmallow on top of smoothie as snout. Add other two pieces as ears to glass. Add the chocolate sprinkles as eyes and snout.
