chalk the block...

Because when you live where I do, you can't just chalk the sidewalk. Seeing as there is no sidewalk, it's nearly impossible. And, seeing as there are yards and yards of smooth, warm, black asphalt just itching to be colored pinks and greens and blues, well. Confining my chalking space to just in front of my garage was not gonna happen. And what better way to spend a beautiful spring day than with a box of sidewalk chalk and your best friend?

You may remember when I wrote about playing this game with Parker in Idaho. It's a game you can't play by yourself, so I invited Adam to try his hand at chalking (we've been seeing an awful lot of each other for being broken up -- not gonna lie, it's been weird, but I'd rather see him than not). Here are some of our favorite drawings.

My favorite of Adam's 

Cave painting, anyone? 

NASA spaceship and -- yep -- Alice in Wonderland caterpillar

"Take a look, it's in a book, a reading rainbow!" 

yes -- because whenever I play this game, a penguin will show up somewhere 

no, it's not Gulliver and the Lilliputians -- but he is in no man's land between two warring armies 


he's dancin' with his princess

see all that chalk behind us? mission chalk the block accomplished.

Oh, and by the way -- we're dating again.
