new book and a tattoo

 We got the kids these fun new books for a little something to do on long car trips.  We have been having so much fun with them.  I thought I'd share some of the drawings the kids have been doing in them.  


There were several choices, boys, girls, fairy tales, etc.  They all have cute little drawing starts with plenty of space for the reader/artist to draw in their own sketches. 


Here's a cute one from Lou's 'boy' book. 


Here's one from Bee.  I'm not sure what exactly she is balancing on.


Lou's cute little Frankenstein:


A silly little fish picture:


This henna page is from Bee's book.  She got pretty excited about it since she had heard about henna tattoos at art camp.  We had to look up pictures online of henna. She sketched several designs. 


For her birthday, she got a henna kit!  We've been having fun with it!  I'm tattooed, 


she's tattooed, 


 the neighbors are tattooed, 


even Lou got tattooed.


 He is to be referred to as White Hawk from now on.   He says he's a wrestler and pretty tough with his ink.

Lou's are definitely the best!! I love henna tattoos. I think my favorite part is the coolness of the henna going on. Maybe because I am roasting right now, so a cool henna tattoo would really hit the spot!
