This is a photo of me with my nephew Daniel at his 8th birthday party a few weeks ago. When we asked him what he wanted for his birthday present, he was being silly and told me that he wanted a pet rock! Several weeks went by and I bet he thought that I would forget about the pet rock idea. You know I love to have fun, so as a joke, I painted this rock that I got from the beach . I gave it a crazy green texture and huge eyes with a wide toothy grin. I added a velvet bed and water and food cups to complete the set. I put it in a box, wrapped it up and gave it to Daniel with the rest of his gifts. The look on his face was priceless when he pulled "Rockie" out from his box!
