Been cleaning a lot this weekend and just relaxing.
Weather has been super nice high 60's F. And sunny, had to convince Bumpkin's that it was ok to be outside. Her favorite thing to say is "Daddy says no, go inside".

Isn't Kool Aid dyeing fun? Did Bumpkins help you? And you sold the scarf? How cool is that!
