Zoo With You Big Thank You!!

Carli and Ava had so much fun with Jake and Allison last weekend. We got to see them three times and every single time they wore themselves out playing! Carli likes the idea of doing crafts, but she doesn't have the patience to always finish what we start. So, in an effort to let Jake and Allison (and Aunt Carolyn) know how much fun we had and to thank them for the awesome zoo trip, we took all day last Friday to make some thank you cards.

First thing that morning, we got our animal crackers and put them in "cages" which were sandwich bags that we drew lines on.

Then after Ava went to take her morning nap, Carli was ready to paint. She painted some grass with a fork and green paint...

About an hour later, we worked on painting some blue sky - which looked well with our "floating grass!"

And then, even later, we added some clouds to the sky...this part she really liked. I should probably invest in some elmers glue!

Finally, just before nap time we declared our "thank yous" finished. Carli was quite pleased with herself. I thought it turned out pretty good.

While the girls napped, I added a quick note to the back...

Not so sure the animal crackers made it all the way to Amarillo or Fairfield in one piece...but it was the thought that counts, right?! :)
