Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and challenge #256
Sum, Sum, Summertime; Fun in the Sun
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!
The Rest of the Story:
1: Yay!! Summer is finally here. One of the best things about summertime is living and playing outdoors until the sun goes down. Neighborhood block parties are a common sight in yards all over town. Nancy Bear is the "Queen" of summer parties and her yard is the place to be in the summer. The pool will be full of little bears and tween bears preening along the side. And the toadstool playground will be a loud and rowdy place where little bears chase each other and play all day.
2: The summer has barely started and the sounds of laughter can be heard from the back and smells of steaks and hot dogs grilling fill the air. It's a great time to be a little bear.
3: And it's a great time to be a teapotter, cuz Nancy Bear has given us an open invitation for all 42,000 teapotters to stop by and enjoy the fun. We'll have to bring our own sunscreen as bears don't keep it around but she will have plenty of food and drink for all. So teapotters, get your sunscreen and your shades and lets head to the block party.
Bring anything you'll need to lounge poolside and soak up some of the glorious sunshine with us.
This week our destination is each other. Itís Tickle a Teapotter week, where we can have a little (or a lot) of fun and surprise one of our own. Sorta say thank you for being you and thank you for all the things you do to help Teapotterville be the place to be. To sign up to tickle someone and to get tickled in return, go here.
Be sure to use the keyword MMTPT256 so your card shows in the gallery.

I don't know about you, but I have been sitting here for the past 2 hours laughing my head off at all the wonderful and funny comments made by everyone, about each others cards at this weeks teaparty.
Thank you so much Sheri, Sabrina and all the other amazing ladies that make this happen. Being a teapotter is like stepping into a magical world. So to the 42,000 teapotters...thank you from the bottom of my heart.
