Our household is in full support of the arts!
From painting to clay to tattoos to music...
This day was mentally created by my husband and myself somewhere mid-maternity...we had no idea it would turn out to be this much fun!!
First: We planned a trip to an art exhibit (while planning we found out that The Monterey Museum of Art was having a free family day! PERFECT!)
Lala really enjoyed looking at all the paintings.
It was so great that they had tons of activity areas set up!
Clay sculpting was a blast!!!
I loved Lalas outfit = ]
Off the shoulder peter pan collar and skinnies- my little fashionista!
Then we walked to Trader Joe's to pick up some special snack items...
She brought her art book.
We set up snack right in the sculpture garden.
A fresh baguette, grapes, cheese, and
wine pomegranate juice!
More fun with the magnifying glass.
Finally, we went to Carmel beach and let the artist do her thing.
Snack deprived artist
The coolest part was the large amount of people who stopped to watch her paint. A few of them took pictures and would clap as she stepped back to see if she wanted to add more.
Taking in the scenery to add to the painting..
True painters stance.
I know I always end by saying something along the lines of "a new favorite memory" but this one will forever be. I smile looking back on this day. We took these pictures a while before her birthday and saved them to post until after. I am so pleased to say we do some form of art everyday.
