Happy Monday! We had a busy but very fun weekend. Saturday afternoon was Santiago's 7th birthday party. We rented a pavilion at the kids' favorite park and then held our breath that this bipolar Texas weather would cooperate for an outdoor celebration. I was getting a bit anxious, as all last week it rained, and then God blessed us with a perfect day for the party. Saturday night we took the kids to Chuck E Cheese as a reward to Santiago for a school achievement that he had earned several weeks before, but this was the first time we had been able to honor it. Sunday afternoon we had lunch with friends from our church, and when we got home Santiago wanted to get all of his birthday presents out of their packaging and play with them. Now today is Santiago's actual birthday. His favorite place in the world to eat is Freebirds, so I'm picking up a burrito from there and taking it to him at school to eat for lunch. I'm looking forward to getting photos developed from the last three days and start scrapping them!
Speaking of scrapbooking...that's why I'm actually here huh? Today I have the final April sketch for Let's Get Sketchy.
And here's what I did with it....
Santiago's birthday wasn't the only celebration for our family this weekend...Saturday was also my dad's birthday. Santiago told me that we should invite Opa to all of his birthday parties so that Opa gets a party too. So in honor of my dad, here's a layout featuring him. Anyone who knows him knows that he's usually a pretty serious guy, so this photo that Santiago took of him making a silly face was definitely a scrap-worthy moment.
Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you have a chance to see what the rest of Let's Get Sketchy's Team B did with this week's sketch.
