Finn still hasn't quite let go of the fun of the snow, but pulling his friend around in the sled did make for a very cute photo op.
I was on call for work the whole weekend, and the pager was busier than usual. We weren't able to get into many crafts, but Finn and I decided to make koolaid play dough this weekend. Not exactly natural with all that artificial color and flavor, but it was fun to sniff while we played.
Finn chose some spring-y colors and had such a wonderful time making everything from pretzels to snails to cars. I'm often glad during times like this that he has my attention to himself every other weekend to work on these crafts that are more age appropriate for him.
When Elizabeth came home, she and Finn spent most of the afternoon outside in the sunshine. They painted on the sidewalk with pansy petals.
And we went for a lovely walk through the neighborhood.
Until Elizabeth discovered the kids' favorite climbing rock...which gave her an idea.
And we started an observation jar with 2 different kinds of moss and a few of the rocks Elizabeth collected.
What simple, yet delightful, ways to experience a few snippets of spring on this lovely first weekend of March!
