FROGS & Garden Art

These pictures are too cute not to share....well kinda cute if you like frogs!
 They pretty much sum up my son.  A few weeks ago I caught him packaging up his captured frogs (complete with a habitat) and selling them to all the neighbors.
  I think he made a few bucks before I stopped him!
I  also took pictures over the Fourth of July of Grandma's fun garden art.  She has the most beautiful backyard and the little pops of garden art are so whimsical. She buys most of the metal garden art from a local artist that sells her creations in the yearly Art In The Park.  I believe the artist uses salvaged metal, including old school buses, and cars.  Pretty cool!
My favorite piece is the "Happiest Place on Earth." 
 We spend so many hours in the back of Grandma's yard barbecuing, making smores, swimming, and playing ball.  It really is a happy and safe place for my kids to spend their summer.
This week Nicole and I are going to round up the grandkids to make more garden art for our Grandmas.
  Come back and see what we're up to! :)

Little boys and frogs = hours of summertime fun. Cute photos.

Love the garden art, so whimsical. I also think the best one is the "Happiest place on earth" one.

I have three boys so I have a true appreciation for frogs. It sounds like you have a very industrious guy there. Nothing like taking advantage of the goood ole American way. ;)

My Zack is definitely not made of frogs and snails and puppy dog tails. Okay, maybe the puppy tails, but he would run screaming if any bug or frog came his way. :/ Great photos!

That scrap metal garden art is fabulous! Have a wonderful week. Tammy

Cute Candice. I love garden art. My Dad has a bunch displayed in his garden. Just today I was telling him I needed some. Can the kids and I come over and make garden art with you? It sounds like so much fun.
