summer afternoon

Finn and I braved the late afternoon heat on this, our last day alone together, to commune with the flowers (and toys) in our front yard. Paul returns this evening, and I'm more than ready for him to be back. I'm also grateful for this bit of time I've had to spend some quality time with Finn before I'm gone for a week. (more about that tomorrow!)

Our mums are blooming!

Did you know they make 3D sidewalk chalk now? Hmmm...

Finn likes to weed! I hope this enjoyment of weeding sticks around to his older years!

And he really likes to roll cars down the driveway.

Our vincas are flowering like crazy.

Finn likes to push his scooter around more than actually ride it.

He also enjoys admiring the vincas from his rock seat.

Off to bath!


  1. Glad you were able to enjoy some quality one on one time with Finn these past couple of days. He's such a cutie.

  2. Time alone with a child is so precious-I'm glad you were able to experience that with Finn. Keep up that weeding Finn! And yes, I have seen that 3 D chalk and it really works.

  3. we have that same chalk with those same glasses:-) Sounds liek you two had a fun time together.

  4. I know two little boys at my house that really like to roll cars (and marbles) down the driveway too!
    He is so cute, glad you had a nice time together!

  5. 3D sidewalk chalk?!? I'm out of the loop! Special alone time is wonderful, I'm glad you and Finn had some time together!

  6. I know the feeling... it's fun--BUT... I know you are glad for Paul to be back!

  7. Looks like you two had a lot of fun together. I think that one on one time is so important, for every child.

  8. I love dianthus! The reds get so bright that they hurt your eyes sometimes, like a bright red geranium!

    I would never have thought that 3d sidewalk chalk works!! Madeleine would love that. :)


I love to hear what you think!
