I picked up some wooden birdfeeders and paint. The kids sat outside and had a lot of fun painting the bird feeders.

The weather was beautiful that morning.

As cooler days approach, the kids are doing more activities outside and enjoying being out in the sun. They run around the yard throwing and kicking balls, help with picking herbs in the garden, and playing in the sandbox.
