I took my kids to our local nature reserve. It was quite hot, but very windy. We spread a blanket under the shade of a big old oak tree and painted with water colors! It was so relaxing. We each painted guinea fowl that we saw walking around and then got some oak leaves, painted those and pressed them onto the paper.
Here is mine...hee hee, had fun doing this.
My sonsSome guinea fowl with their chicks
You know it's spring when you see this happening everywhere!! Ha ha. My kids wanted to know what they were doing... *blush* the sounds emanating from the male were hilarious. My daughter thought it was "cute" and started coping the sounds!! I was almost in hysterics with the questions and remarks my kids were making! It was all just too much!!
So a lovely day spent outside...alas I had bad hay fever the rest of the day from all the wind and grasses!
