Been meaning to post these for awhile. They were taken April 6th.
After being couped up in the house listening to General Conference all day, Lily was ready to get out and do something. She brought me our book 365 TV-Free Activities You Can Do With Your Child (thanks, Becky!) and we found one about doing a chalk maze out on the sidewalk. Feeling newly inspired by Elder Ballard's talk and thinking about treasuring the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less, we headed outside and I spent about an hour drawing a chalk maze for Lily.
Prepare to be impressed. Not by my cool maze, but by Lily's photography skills. She took these pictures:
Check out the totally sweet dutch angle! I think we have a budding photographer on our hands!
I love this one Lily took of Amelia and me.
(The rest of the photos were taken by me.)
Amelia had lots of fun "helping" me with the maze. She kept stealing my chalk and I'd have to go find another piece, only to repeat the process again a few minutes later.
An hour of chalking and she completed the maze in about 45 seconds. Somehow it doesn't seem fair. Ah well, all in the name of quality time...
And hey, if the photography thing doesn't work out for Lily, she can always fall back on her balloon design skills. She made these shapes all by herself (a human and a dog).
Watch for her on the T.G.I. Friday's circuit in about 10 years. Be sure to give her a big tip!
