I had a ridiculous amount of fun yesterday taking these pictures while babysitting my friend's kids!
I had brought some art supplies and sidewalk chalk to do an art project with the kids. After they'd done their projects, they wanted to play outside, so I let them use the sidewalk chalk on the patio. All of a sudden, I remembered this idea I'd seen on Pinterest that I've always wanted to try. So I started drawing some balloons and called the kids over and explained what I was doing and told one of them to lay on the ground and act like they were holding the balloons. Of course, after that, everyone wanted a turn!
|Oh no! He's floating awaaaaay!|
I didn't even need a ladder, since they have a small back deck overlooking the patio that was perfect for me to stand on to get these overhead shots.
But I couldn't stop with the balloons! We made the kids into flying superheros next!
|He got a little bit of chalk on his butt while he was trying to get into position!|
|This girl is going to be a model. Look at her looking into the camera with that cheeky little smirk!|
|Laurel couldn't quite get the idea that she needed to lay on her side. But it's okay... she's 3, and it's still cute!|
I wish I could have done one with their 5 month old baby brother to complete the set, but he's still nursing and was out with mom and dad on their dinner date for their 13th anniversary!
|Behind the scenes. Eli decided to color in the balloons. It looks like Lula is letting go of the balloons and falling!|
