Usually that means wer’re running around like crazy doing errands, attending children’s birthday parties, and cleaning the house. Well yesterday I accomplished cleaning the entire house and there were no scheduled parties today so it was one full day to relax and enjoy the weekend.
The kids both slept in because we were out late last night. We went to the drive-in movies to see G.I. Joe. They absolutely loved watching a movie in the car with their blankets and pillows. Today, they wanted to hit the pool followed by a picnic. It was a perfect day to enjoy the outdoors- 70’s and sunny.
We also spent some time working on art today. I haven’t made time to scrapbook in several months, so I decided to dedicate at least a couple hours to working on the pictures from our trip to Disney World this year.
The kids worked on coloring and drawing while I worked on my scrapbooking project. They are always excited to be able to spend time together, and with me, doing creative things. It is so rewarding to see the projects they come up with.
The first page I created was about our trip to Epcot and the time we spent watching the Chinese acrobats in the China section of the park. The twins were especially impressed with the girl who performed with about 100 metal hula hoops. Lili even tried demonstrating several of the acrobatic poses for us after the show.
The next page turned out to be one I really liked. We enjoyed Epcot so much and especially the France setion of the park. That was where we had a fantastic lunch at Les Chefs de France. So, it was easy to put together a page celebrating that part of our visit. I even kept in the spirt of Disney and added a “hidden Mickey” on the page. The kids had a great time figuring it out.
The last page I worked on was one for Lili’s scrapbook. We had some cute pictures of her in her Minnie Mouse costume taken on her first day at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. I tried to let the pictures be the main focus of the page.
