Walk of Fame

I was under the impression the driveway and patio was the last thing that would be completed, so I thought I had time to mention this to our PM, but I really wanted to get our daughter's handprints in the concrete. My husband just so happened to be emailing back & forth with him about something & he mentioned the concrete had been poured earlier that day. I hurry up and grabbed my daughter from the daycare at the YMCA (where I had been working out) & drove to the house.

Unfortunately the driveway had already dried (seriously, what kind of concrete are they using??), but the back patio was still slightly wet. It was tough getting her hands in it & trying to push them down hard enough to make an impression (especially since she's squirmy as hell), but I got the best I could. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't have anything with me to carve her name or the year in the concrete, but it's better than nothing!

And I promise she does have a pinky finger on her right hand!


  1. I want to do this with my 3 lil girls.... too cute.

  2. I engraved our names near the front corner of the garage with the year! I made it just in time too!

    Her prints are lovely!!!
