Indoor Activities

The weather here has been playing tricks on us. One day it gets up to 60 degrees and we are outside on the lawn eating chips ahoy while the boys make mud pies. And then the next day we are bundle up by the fire reading stories trying to stay warm. 

I can’t complain too much, at least we don’t have to deal with the snow. It’s pretty and fun for a minute, but I definitely don’t miss living in it. 

The other morning we woke up to fog. It was beautiful. Of course I had to grab my camera and capture the moment. We hardly ever get fog here. 

Since it’s been way too cold for playing outside the past few days, I have been trying to think a new ways to entertain two busy little boys.

The first one we came up with is a B U B B L E | B A T H !  Probably not the kind you are thinking of, I’m talking about the kind of bubbles you blow. They loved it. Last year some of our friends gave Nixon a bubble gun for his birthday, which I am a big fan of. All you do is push a button and waalaa instant bubbles! No more – out of breathe, blue in the face, not blowing the bubbles fast enough Mama for me;)

The next thing we did is I N D O O R | C H A L K. Nixon loves going outside in the summer to draw with chalk, and since it’s been too cold for that, we had to improvise. I laid out a long piece of paper, taped it to the floor, and the boys went to town drawing on it with chalk.
