Weekly Challenge #224

Happy Monday everyone!!

and here at Casa Diva: School's Out for SUMMER!  (Cue Alice Cooper)

Chewie has been pretty pumped about the last week of school - there were play days and bowling trips and spray park shenanigans.


The sprinkler has been going full strength keeping the boys cool.

On Saturday morning our fridge died, which put us in panic mode.  Especially since Sunday was such a big day...

Everything all week has been leading up to the best day of the week - Chewie's 7th Birthday Party!
His birthday is actually next week - but we wanted to have it the last weekend in June so his friends from school could come. 

so excited!
The party was Star Wars themed - and all the kids attended the "Jedi Academy" where they learned to work together as a team and do obstacles.  

crossing over the Sarlac Pit, be careful not to fall in!

heading to Degobah to get training from Master Yoda
 We had lunch and then had cupcakes and then Darth Vader arrived and they used their newfound Jedi skills to take him down.



After the birthday party we headed out to find a new fridge, and found one we could bring home - but we had to borrow a truck, and borrow a friend, and remove the entire patio doors, and get the old fridge out and the new fridge in....  at the end of the day, everyone was really exhausted.  And we are finally into full time Summer Break!

Weekly Challenge #224: "Monotangle: Tipple"
This is my last post for a while, as i'm taking the summer off to be summer-y with the family.

BUT DON'T FRET!! I have a whole set of amazing guest posts lined up to take care of things while i'm gone!!


So, here we go:
This week's challenge is to use the tangle "Tipple"  and there aren't really step outs, it's just fill a space with tiny circles.


I find drawing circles to be very relaxing.  So tipple after a week like this was pretty awesome.

Have fun with tipple - and have a great summer!
