Summer Fun! Pet Rocks!

Do some of you remember the Pet Rock craze years and years ago? Well my family is bringing it back baby! Well sort of.

On our trip to Maine 5 years ago we picked up some smooth rocks along the coast. When I was planning our Summer fun I thought about those rocks and how perfect they would be for painting.

So I got out the paints and brushes and we got to work.

Waiting for inspiration to hit!

Dad found inspiration early. LOL!

I looked at my two rocks and instantly knew what they needed to be?

Any clue?

Ta-dah!

And my next rock was a no brainer!

It was the perfect Larry the Cucumber shape. LOL!

My two youngest started to feed off of my inspiration and went to work.

Isn’t it cute?

Don’t think I forgot about my hubby. No, he was hard at work creating this.

Yeah, he kind of went in a different direction. LOL!

But we all had a blast making our creations.

You got any plans this week?

HAVE A FABULOUS DAY!

  1. LOVE Bob and Larry!!

    This is too funny ~ my girls did the same thing a couple days ago! Only they just decorated theirs with markers. (and I forgot about googly eyes!) And then they cut up old boxes and denim scraps to make homes for their rocks ~ I kid you not, it kept them busy for at least three solid hours!!!
