Friends City

Today I taped a roll of white banner paper onto the fence, gave the kids some paint and markers, and let them go to town... so they made a town. They named their city "Friends City". That's the cheesiest name I have ever heard of. The city is complete with a McDonalds, Starbucks, Burger King, King Soopers, a gym, Hot Topic, a skateboard park, a skateboard shop, a tattoo shop, a pool, a spa, two motels, muscle men, a drowning child, lifeguards, a rainbow, a beach, roof gardens, and more.

Note: This wasn't a "planned" craft day. It was just an improptu thing I did for my kids and then people just kept showing up... as they tend to do. It was a great activity, because I hardly had to do anything- infact I got a lot of work done on my own painting for... *gasp* my next art show!

No, you're still cooler Holly... because of your cakes. But as soon as I start making really awesome cakes, then you will have to worry.
