ARTsy wednesday

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. 🙂

ARTsy wednesday

It’s ARTsy wednesday!!!!

Did anyone even notice that it was missing for a while? (it too was on vacation)

Today I would like to introduce a new artist.

Lily!

Just kidding….

We had art in the park yesterday at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden for the second time and I thought it appropriate for today’s ARTsy wednesday post. 😉

There weren’t as many moms and kids as last time and it was super hot and muggy but we still had a great time and can’t wait for the next.

We have an artist!

Today through the South Beach Mommies Meet-up group we had ART in the Park at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden.

It was SOOOOOO much fun!

Almost 20 moms with their little ones showed up and for most of us, it was our little one’s first time painting.

There were blankets all spread out on the grass, paper and washable paints being shared all underneath the shade of a wonderful big tree.

Everyone had an amazing time, mommies and babies.

It was so wonderful being able to have had such an artistic experience with Lily. When I was pregnant, I would daydream about painting with Lily, and today it became real!

I think it’s the beginning of something really good. 😉

(Sorry for the picture overload but, I think in this case a picture (make that many) is worth a thousand words)
