Labor day Parade!

So we went to a parade in town on Labor day.  I am happy to report that my kids had fun with their friends but what a bummer of a parade it was with people and there attitudes towards political junk.  It was kinda depressing as adults acted like children who did not get there way.  Lot of people were in red to support the Democrats, other cheering with the Republicans, and lot of people had shirts on demanding they get bargaining rights back since our governor signed a bill to get rid of labor unions last spring.

To me it was pathetic to see old ladies "booing" others walking in the parade!!!  REALLY??  GROW UP!  My friend spoke up and said "Knock it off, I don't want my kids to be a part of this."

I am glad my daughter never noticed any of the other adults agenda's and had fun but it just has been on my mind since Monday!  I don't follow politics much at all... I mean don't get me wrong I think it is important to know what is going on but at the same time it just get's everyone undies in a bundle.

We also did get a ton of candy which made my daughter's day!

Oh that is so sad! People are so self-centered. I'm glad your little one didn't notice though. Little Bit is a huge fan of parades. I wish they had one for Labor Day but I guess our little town can only swing so many in a given year.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
