CPS has a great sketch up this week. When I checked my April birthday list I knew a lily pad was in order for the center and these cute little frogs were going for a visit to VA.

(and new but purchased at a garage sale- one of the prerequisites of our Christmas exchanges).
Perhaps I should edit my "grown up" statement.........
