Toy's R Us, Barnes & Noble and Sidewalk Chalk

The other day we ransacked Toy's R Us and Barnes & Noble. The need for crayons inspired this trip but not only did she get her jumbo crayons, but she got a Leap Frog Tag Jr. with THREE books, she got some educational workbooks AND drumroll please......

her first case of sidewalk chalk!
[yes I did say case]

So yesterday we took a walk around the neighborhood of our complex and we picked an abandoned sidewalk.  The developer stopped making town homes, so a sidewalk intended to border another building of them, was laid but the homes were never built. Sad I know. But GREAT for us because we DREW ALL OVER!

When I say "WE", I kinda mean I had a bit more fun with the colors while she scribbled away!

I know its just sidewalk chalk, but to me its a great way to bond with my little one even more.  I only refer to them by their colors so it becomes  a learning experience while she scribbles all over the cement! She doesn't even realize and she's sooo great with her colors now!

 I really do love that she can play with sidewalk chalk, I never really had the opportunity to those kind of things growing up in apartment buildings, but she loved it! It's definitely a great day to keep in mind, and add to the book of memories before I leave for my deployment.
 Also, the best thing was that since we live nearby a bay, we had a front row view of the huge tanker ships sailing by.
