Sidewalk Art

When I was a kid, the only kind of sidewalk chalk was a white rock. Remember those? You'd search your parents' or neighbors' rock gardens and find a white rock. And then you scratched the driveway with it until you had some sort of markings.

Well, sidewalk chalk has come a long way, baby!!
Our cute neighbor girls brought over their box of sidewalk chalk and the kids had a blast drawing and writing. And our driveway has never been more lovely!

Did you know you can even buy 3-D sidewalk chalk? I'll admit I was a skeptic, but it really does work!
Allison is wearing the lovely green glasses that allow you to see your art in three dimensions.

I'm such a great mom! That's Brianna's dinner...ramen noodles. Beef. She made them herself. And ate them on the driveway. Notice the cell phone ready for receiving texts.

Cody got some new wheels this week.
I've known Cody his whole life.
He and Allison are the same age.
It's been fun seeing him grow into a young man.

I was very impressed with Megan and Morgan's artistic abilities in writing their names in puffy letters. I told them that some of my 3rd graders have trouble with that.
I'm so glad these kids are our neighbors! Their sister, Taylor, was missing on this particular night.
All the kids play so well together.
They better not ever move!

  1. yes, I do remember using white rocks as sidewalk chalk! When we lived in St. Louis, we lived at the end of a cul-de-sac and my girls and their neighborhood friends would cover the end of the cul-de-sac with chalk art. I miss those days. Enjoy your summer break!
