chucks and tie-dye

We've been busy flower shopping, weeding, playing outside, enjoying our small Farmer's Market, celebrating a friend's retirement, and pigging out on chocolate with friends.
Most importantly - we've been tying our new shoes!!!
Although I couldn't find my dreamy turquoise shoes... I am loving my new bright blue Chucks.  The kids are so cute in theirs too.  I'm just feeling so summery and funky and ready to go on an adventure!

Today the humidity was stifling, so I decided it was a good day to tie-dye.  We put on our grungy clothes, got out the tubs, and got to work.  We clothespinned, rubber banded, dipped, drowned, and colored.
Abby was quite nervous about it all and just wanted to peek in on what was going on.  No touching on her part.
Conner really got into it and was concentrating so hard!  He was definitely intent on getting every white spot covered after the first one opened up to a lot of white.

We had so much fun!  The big piece of fabric is actually a shower curtain... there's a bathroom redo underway and once I get going on the painting I'll share more.  I'm so excited about it and can't wait to see it all come together.

What have you been up to this week?

Those shoes look super comfy, and I love the tie-dye shower curtain!

We've been playing outside tons, and a bunch of indoor activities on the one rainy day we had will go up as next week's blog posts =)
