Ice cream, paint, flowers and fun!

It was my weekend off and we had Alaina and Ruby overnight on Friday.
The weather is still cool here, but Spring has arrived and the local ice cream spot is open again.   Alaina has been asking to go get ice cream for a while, so we stopped on our way home.










A good, yummy time was had by all!


On Saturday, Bob had to work.  His store was having a special kids event though.  Kids could come in and make something for their Moms for Mothers Day, so we went in and visited Grandpa and checked out the kids event.





First they painted the pots.



Then they worked on a card for their Mom.


While the paint dried, we wandered around the store and looked at all the animals that are mounted on the walls.


 They got to pick out the flowers they wanted, and planted them in their pots.



 There was popcorn to eat!



Here are the finished works of art, all ready for their Mom.
The girls had such fun making these.  I brought them home, a little tired but excited to give them to Laura.  Actually Ruby was so excited that she tipped hers over as she handed it off.  It was easily fixed though.
It was a good weekend!

Your grandgirls are so precious, Mari. How lovely that a store provided something as nice as that for a project for the children to have a gift for their moms.

Now I'm hungry for ice cream! haha

Also glad to hear that you had a weekend off!

Alaina has grown so much. They are both such precious little girls and I know they enjoy being with you. Their Mother will treasure those flower pots for many years to come. A very special memory.

Hi Mari! I helped take the grandkids to Home Depot this weekend to paint pots too. What fun for the kids! They had a great time hammering and painting, and there were tons of children and dads there too.
Who doesn't love a trip to the ice cream place? I'd have had a scoop myself!
Blessings,
Ceil

Those girls are beyond adorable! How great that you get some good quality time with them often! Making the flower pots is a great project! Fun & good memories! Thanks for sharing them with us, Mari!

Very fun! Those girls are just adorable! ;)

Laura said...

They had a blast as usual, and the flower pots were so cute!

Those little girls are so beautiful and precious, and I can't believe how big they've grown. I can't wait until Dagny is able to do something for her mommy all on her own (with just a little help from me, haahaa). Happy Mother's Day to you, Mari! xoxo

Wow they are growing up so fast! Every time I see them they look a little older. They look like they get on well together which must be nice. So no photo of you eating ice cream then? :D
