There’s nothing I love more about Summer than the excuse to be outdoors making a mess.  I’m also always on the lookout for fun ways to explore painting with kids.  So when I found Crystal, Jewel and Rosie sharing 5 Ways to Paint with Balloons, I knew I had to jump onboard and spread the word.

It’s been downright HOT in the Bay Area!  I mean heatwave HOT!  I mean, hard to sleep at night HOT!  I mean, break out the water balloons, because it’s time to beat the heat, HOT!

Granted, I live in San Francisco, where it’s "hot" when it reaches 80 degrees, but I figure if we are feeling it, I can only imagine how warm it is elsewhere.  

I can't believe we are only 2 weeks away from the 4th of July!  I swear it seems it was just Easter!  I don't know if it's the product of having a very busy business, or just getting older, but time seems to move at an incredibly rapid rate anymore!

For that reason I wanted to jump on getting out some fun 4th of July You Made Its!  

From what I have observed, fatherhood has changed over the years.  Those stereotypical gifts of the past like ties, tools, and fishing equipment have taken a backseat to electronics and gadgets meant for a wide array of hobbies. 

This year, I’m all about simple Father’s Day gifts.  I'll be writing more about that in my Thursday blog.  However, while you are frittering away the time (ha...who has any time to spare nowadays?) between now and then, pop on over to Crayon Box Chronicles and see this very simple but seriously sweet Father’s Day card.
