Hopscotch and "Ballet"

The weather was PERFECT this weekend, a much needed break from the sweltering heat and humidity. It's been so long since the weather was nice we tried to pack in as many outdoor activities as we could: swimming, walks, riding bikes, playing in the backyard, and hopscotch. It was so fun, last year it was more like Mommy doing hopscotch while the girls watched in confusion, this time Khera really got into it, Elle, not so much.
Khera really got into drawing the numbers in the squares and was SO proud when we had it all set up. Elle was working on her "monsterpiece":
It turned out quite good, here's a shot of her modern art:
I like her use of color, and it's balance. Meanwhile Khera is still hopping:
Elle was so kind to pose for me momentarily:
She really did NOT want to be in any photos, as you can see here:
Still hopping:

Sisters make the best friends:

Last night the girls put on a "ballet" performance for us. Our "ballet" music was provided by the Black Eyed Peas.

I love their expressions here, especially Khera's:
And one of Elle gettin' after it:
You may be wondering where Tom-tom was during all of this, he was a spectator, along with his pops and myself. If we could hear his thoughts it would probably sound something like this: "Geez, I really need a brother..."

Well Tom, we're just going to have to go to the park and make some friends!

Thanks for stopping by!
