Zebra , popsicle sticks and toilet paper rolls

what?  How are these related.  I've been wanting to have a craft day with Nic but I'm 1) totally not creative and not artistic and 2) limited time.  But last week we did one of our first art projects one evening.  We made a zebra out of toilet paper rolls, popsicle sticks, and construction paper.

Here are the pictures.  Not beautiful but Nic liked it and that is all that mattered.

I'm going to try to do one of these at least once every 2 weeks. What do you think does it look more like a cow? LOL

I'm tired, back from vacation

I should not complain that I'm tired b/c I got back from my girls only vacation on Monday but traveling always takes a lot of of me.  Especially after a long week at work and a very active toddler.  I'll do a few blog posts about my girls only vacation but for today I'll just post one of the few shots I pulled off my memory stick.

This is one of the first pics that I took when we (Carolina-sis, T-bff, and I) arrived in San Francisco.  The fog was thick that day and cold but I think this is normal.

Here is one of us three.

All we have from the trip is memories and some awesome pics.

The first is not technically a sky shot but I'm going to link up to Skywatch Friday anyway!

Have a great weekend!
