Flamingo Friday!

What is a Flamingo Friday?

They are very special days for our Grandchildren. Days when we craft, share something special with each other, go on an adventure and have our favorite lunch - Grilled Cheese sandwiches!

Why Flamingo and why pink? According to my husband, Ed pink is his favorite color and the flamingos started arriving. I am not sure if pink is truley his favorite color, however the grandchildren enjoy it.

Invitations that I crafted for Flamingo Friday!

Zoo Animals were the theme for Flamingo Friday!  Andrew and Daphne created Artist Trading Cards. Which you can see they colored and embellished. 
 Also, we studied about Flamingos! 
We learned that their colors can go from pink to red.
In the afternoon we went on our adventure and explored the Portland Zoo.

Of course you have to eat Elephant Ears, which the elephant is their favorite Zoo animal. Although the monkey must be a close second for Andrew!
Next Flamingo Friday, we are going to craft with glitter!  Any ideas please share.
