It had been a while since Lily had a painting session with friends.
So, I got my mommy friends and their kiddos together and we had a lovely morning at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather. 🙂
P.S. Let me know if you notice any difference in my pictures. Will surprised me with a Nikon 3100 (thanks Will and thanks tax return!). I’m still learning how to use it but having tons of fun while doing so.
I know, today is thursday BUT, yesterday was wednesday and it truly was ARTsy wednesday here.
We were supposed to have a picnic at southpoint with 5 other mommy friends and their kiddos but because it was not picnic weather, aside from an early walk down Lincoln Rd, we mostly stayed home and played with the wonderful artsy gifts that Lily has been given.
The easel was Lily’s birthday present from avo Hayes and avo Joao.
I love it and I think Lily does too! (one of my favorite presents from my dad is my easel, it hasn’t been used in a while but I’ve had it since 1995(?) and I think of him every time I use it)
I do have to say though, thank goodness for washable paints. 🙂
Earlier this week Lily and I went off on an early walk to check out our local Botanical Gardens.
Before Lily was born, Will and I went a few times and I’m so glad that I finally took her over there because we both had a great time.
It was still early enough (9am) so it wasn’t too hot yet and there were no people other than the employees working on the flower beds.
We took our time cruising through the grounds, we checked some new and old sculptures, there were lots of flowers to look at, we spotted an herb garden, we even got to sit and relax in the shade under a big and beautiful tree.
It was a wonderful morning!
