cinderellas in the spring
it's spring outside... or so it says on the calendar. it's still been pretty cold outside, although we did catch a bit of a break today. it was in the mid to upper 40's and the sun was out. woohoo! the girls had their friend emmerson over this afternoon. they ran around in the backyard, dug up some old duck decoys from somewhere in the yard, and threw them in the pond... loads of dirty spring fun.
they played pickle ball for a bit, but the court really slippery with moss and pine needles from all winter... so they decided to play evil queen & the servants instead. one kid bossed the others around while the swept the entire court off. how cool is that? now if i can come up with a way to bottle and sell that game, and i'll be rich!!!
seriously, though... this game is cool. they did a really good job with it. they kept switching off who got to be the servant with the big broom. lol. cracked me up.
i got this picture when i was pegged with the part of evil queen. they all wanted to be servants... what's a mom to do, but play along... poorly pulled off british accent and all! :) they told me i had to return to "yell" at them and punish them for not having their jobs done. hot dog! i did my best, but really it's pretty hard to do without being amused and thankful all at the same time.
