Gavin's days are full of color!

Last week we had a very nice day of weather, and since Gavin had the day off from school, he and I went out and had a "Mommy and Me" day! I rarely get a full day with just one of my boys and Gavin and I had so much fun, so I hope to take a day to enjoy alonetime with each one of my boys soon!

Gavin and I drove out to a town, near our home, that has a yearly Tulip Time Festival. It was close to perfect weather, so it was a great day to go look at, in my opinion, one of God's greatest creations, the Tulip! I absolutely love Springtime, just because of all the color that pops up around us in such a short period of time, and Tulips are my favorite flowers to see.

Here are some pictures of Gavin enjoying the beautiful weather and the beautiful flowers:







Last week Gavin also made some color of his own, by painting...




With his feet! :)

I was looking for a project to do for teachers and for Mother's Day and I was having a difficult time coming up with something. Thankfully, I checked a blog that I like to visit and found the perfect thing to do! I changed it up a little, by doing the artwork on canvas bags.

Here is Gavin's finished project, that we made for his teacher:




Gavin did a great job, don't you think?

Gavin also did some artwork at school recently. Here is a picture of the artist at work:



I'm so proud of my sweet boy!

Take some time to enjoy all the colors that surround you! :)

Oh my gosh! I LOVE the idea of the bags you and Gavin made! That is such an awesome idea!

I am glad you and Gavin got out and had a wonderful day out in the sunshine and tulips.

I meant to come on here on Sunday and wish you a Happy Mother's Day but didn't. So now I will: HAPPY MOTHER"S DAY!!!!

Those tulips are beautiful! I love the smiling Gavin pictures as always, and I imagine that those bags will be treasured for a long time. :)

I love how he smiles so much. That sounds like the perfect outing for you two. I'm sure all the colors were great for him to look at.

And the bag is adorable. What a great idea! I wish I was more creative in coming up with ideas to do for the nurses at Isabelle's day care. Looks like he had a fun filled week and thanks for the idea.

We have a beautiful tulip festival here, if it will ever warm up enough to go!
I'm having my front yard totally redone in the next few weeks, new lawn, new flowerbeds. I can't wait to plant my tulips to come up next year!
