Stuff Portrait Friday.....RAINBOW

Kristine choose the random topic of rainbow this week for her SPF. You would think with all the rain we have had in the last two months I would have an multitude of opportunities to take pictures of rainbows. Let's just say it hasn't happened. We had gutters installed on the house, just so we don't wash away. But no rainbows.
So I was sorting through some old pics on the big computer. I found these. I know they are in the last year....because the kids got that table for Christmas.
My first rainbow........see the little tiny foam squares in Will's sorting activity?? Looks like a color wheel.....he might look exactly like a "mini-me" of Mike, but he acts just like me. The first two squares hold a purple and a red one. After a bit of this sorting, (done with the tongs we use to get toast out), he started the same pattern with circles, stars, and tiny circles.
I can't take the credit for this, I know he does something similar to it at school. But when it has rained for almost the last 2-3 months, we are desperate to find things to do inside besides watch TV..
The no watching TV is purely for selfish reasons....because when I am prepping dinner or not able to be with them, you know it is on!
oh yeah, I feel the need to address his "talk to the hand" phase.....it has slowed down a bit....now he just runs and hides. I cracked up when I found this picture. It is like he is looking just beyond his thumb to see if I am still taking pictures!

The second rainbow.....Livi in a bunch of balls at one of those bouncey house places. As part of an kid's Expo event to things in the area to do with kids, a place about 30 minutes set up about 20 of those huge inflatables that the kids could bounce in and have a "ball"<----I totally make myself laugh some times! We paid a fortune to get in....I thought it might be like $5 a kid.....yeah right....but this was right after Mike had left from being home on R&R, so keeping the kids distracted was the focus. btw, we never have gone over there. I might have to plan a little road trip, they loved it!

happy Friday y'all

I need to start playing SPF again. Nice rainbows. I have some of those pampered Chef tongs, I should do something like this for Jaykeb. You are very creative. Have a nice weekend.

I loved jumping in those colored balls when my son was little. Now he's a teenager and I have no excuse. ;-)

Happy SPF and thanks for stopping by mine.

My little monkey is OBSESSED with rainbows. Anything that's an arc shape is a rainbow to her! ;)

Do you scrapbook? "Talk to the hand" with pictures like the first one here would make a great spread! LOL! But it sounds like you may be too busy for that. I like the rainbow colors here, and truly, your children are totally cute. Thanks for stopping by!
