Chalk Walk Festival and A Happy Fathers Day

to all the wonderful daddies out there!

My kiddos have the best daddy they could ever ask for. He was very happy he was able to spend the day with us and not on a train stuck in the middle of nowhere.

Yesterday the kids and I went to Crown Center to see their Chalk Walk.  Amazing artists from around the metro come to create stunning masterpieces all for people to see.  No money, no judging, no winners, no losers...simply amazing beauty and artistry!

There was also an area for the kids to try their chalk skills.  Her is James creating his "Tiki Mask" and Parker....well all he created was being chalky everywhere on his body.  He sat to draw for about two seconds and then was off to try to get all of the chalk that everyone else was using.  We need to work on those sharing skills that he lacks.
Here's James showing us his mad hula hooping skills...

After the Chalk Walk, we went inside Crown Center to eat at Fritz's. Yummy hanburgers that are way overpriced all to see a train run around the restaurant and bring you your food. It's all about the experience I tell ya.

Here is Parker watching the train bring our food down to the table.  So totally cool!
After dinner I let the kids play in the infamous fountain at Crown Center.  People will come to Crown Center just to let their kids play in the fountains.  If you visit {with children} you have to let them experience it.

All in all it was an amazing weekend and I'm not ready for it to end.  Now back to the grind of housework of "trying" to keep it clean while little ones come behind me only to make it a mess again.

We do have a birthday that we get to look forward to this week though...James will be turning "7" on Tuesday.  Until then, I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday { is Monday already since it's already so late}.

I'm off to bed...nighty night!

I wish we would have had time to go to that chalk thing on Sunday. It looks so cool and my boys would have LOVED it!
