Illustration Friday - impatience


Lulu grew incredibly impatient as she tried and tried to pitch her cute pink tent.
Steve and I can get like this when we are on our road trips we can't wait to pitch the tent so we can go and hike to the top of the nearest mountain!
(I know I have posted this before but it fit so perfectly for this weeks theme).

Its supposed to be really hot and sticky this weekend, so I will be really patient and eat lots of watermelon and drink lots of water!

Happy Happy weekend everyone.

Very cute, Amy. Love the one with her face all smooshed by the collapsing tent.

A sweet illustration and great for the theme! We enjoy watching people put up their awnings (large tent-like additions) attached to their trailers.

Too cute!!! I am in a camping mood and I'm tempted to buy a tent though Craig refuses to do tent camping! So maybe a pink one like this just for me!! ;) I see children's books in your future!!!

I like the watermelon red color tent. Lulu should rest for a while to try to fix her tent again.
