Chalk improvisation

Em and Ro's fish Oscar died and we needed to have some cheerful moments after the fishie funeral this afternoon.  By some weird chance, I ran out of sidewalk and forgot to pick some up.  The boys reeeeallllyyy wanted to make a car obstacle course on the concrete outside, so we improvised. 

I grabbed the large roll of painting paper and taped it down on the concrete and took out the other chalk (that stains sidewalks) and let them have at it.  Each embellished their course with rainbows and lava and zombie chickens crossing the road ( ? ) and grassy hills and the races were on!  Two hours later they are still at it.

A nice ending to a sad afternoon I must say.
