chalkin' it up in the hood

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous outside. So Elliott and I went for a walk and then I introduced him to something completely new to him: SIDEWALK CHALK!

It was of course a huge hit, but not just with Elliott. Every adult and child that walked by smiled at us and said something like "I remember doing that..." or "Wow, how fun!" or "What a great mom!" *blush* Even the cross-walk lady came over and reminisced about her sidewalk chalking days. It was pretty much the hit of the neighborhood. Some people even joined in. It was great!
And here he is yelling, "Hello over there!" to complete strangers who then crossed the street, and drew a rainbow. It was a pretty awesome afternoon.

p.s. Thank heavens chalk comes out in the wash. It was in/on everything!
