Things to do when it's so smoky you can't go outside...

There are several major fires still burning near our house and they are creating major smoke in the air. The air is so thick with smoke here that we've had to keep everything closed up and can't go outside for long. Owen's been sneezing, James has been coughing a little, and I've had a sore throat & headache for a week now. We're getting very burned out on being stuck inside, but we're making the most of it!

James & Owen have enjoyed painting with their new paints....

We built a fort in the livingroom with sheets & pillows.

Owen & I even made our own worm compost bin for our garage while James was at his preschool class the other day!

We're enjoying our relaxing time at home together, but boy am I ready to get OUTSIDE!!! We are all looking forward to our annual trip to Downieville for the 4th of July to sit a tthe river and go swimming!
