Paints, popcorn and playdoh!

I watched Gianna all day and we had a lot of fun!  We went to the park right away in the morning because I knew it was going to rain.  Unfortunately the slides were wet from overnight still so we didn't get to play much.  Then we went to Target to get a few things.  To my surprise, both girls napped for about 2 1/2 hours after lunch.  I even got a little snooze on the loveseat!

And as usual, I took a million pictures so let's get to it...

These were about all she could do.

Kyla just enjoyed running around and having me chase her.

We got the Play Doh out.  It was Kyla's first time and as you can tell, she was not a fan.

Gianna, on the other hand, had a great time!

Coloring is more Kyla's style.

"Auntie, your cake is ready!"

"Where's mine?"

My two little students hard at work.

Gianna enjoyed Kyla's yellow Tot School bin

No need to take the puzzle out when you can do it IN the shelf :)

I copied Shawna's idea from yesterday and had Gianna make a cherry blossom tree.  She thought gluing the popcorn to the paper was "so cool".

Painting the tree

Adding the popcorn (the ones we didn't eat at least)

Kyla was napping and all of a sudden we heard her cracking up in her bedroom.  Gianna thought it was pretty funny :)

I let her pick out something at Target (because duh, I'm the best Auntie EVER) and this is what she wanted.  It's mess free finger paints.

Kyla's up from her nap and having Mickey withdrawals so we put it on for her.

We had lots of extra popcorn so we decided to do another picture.

And then Gianna was ready to go back downstairs.  She told me at least five times today how much she loves the basement.  "It's so fun down here, Auntie!"

Notice Gianna on the phone in the background :)

Gianna reading to Kyla :)

I should have videotaped her reading.  She has the greatest "stories".

And even though I got a little nap, I am exhausted!  I'm off to make breakfast for dinner (YUM!) and hopefully hit the hay early because Gi's coming again tomorrow to do it all over again :)
