snails

Dork on channel 7

While playing by the snails yesterday morning, we were approached by Vanessa who works for channel 7.

She was interviewing locals due to the vandalism that has happened to the snails.

Yes, unfortunately some of the snails have gotten vandalized.

Uncle Darren wrote me this morning letting me know how much he enjoyed seeing me on the news this morning.

Dorkร‚ย  alert!

Here’s the link in case you want to check it out.

Beach art exhibit vandalized.

More bundled up fun at the park

It was chilly again yesterday. (YES!)

We went to the park in the morning and met up with our friends.

Lily, Sofia and Dylan were so fun to watch.

They are totally aware of one another now and they are so funny!

I got a little Christmas shopping done also.

Can you believe Christmas is in 17 days?

I can’t!!!!

I have to get all my shopping done this week because we are leaving for West Virginia on the 16th and there will be no shopping after that.

That means only 8 days!!

AHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Oh! And don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY!

Claudia took all the kids because she was freezing!

Chasing giant pink snails

Art Basel is almost here!!!!

For those of you who are not familiar with Art Basel, it is the largest art fair in the world.

It started in Basel, Switzerland (therefore the name) and it’s been coming to Miami in December since 2002.

I can honestly say that Art Basel is my favorite time of the year in Miami.

The whole beach gets taken over by the best artists, art collectors, art dealers in the world.

This year, to kick off the start of Art Basel, there will be 45 huge snails slowly (at a snail’s pace) making South Beach their home from November 18 2010 until January 2010.

The pink snails are part of the global sensation known as the REgeneration Art Project, the Miami Beach snails will be the series latest and first US-based installation.

The art series is designed to inspire a community-wide conversation about the importance of recycling and its environmental impact, while leaving a potent artistic trace on the Miami Beach community.

Lily and I have been riding around town for the past 2 days chasing down these giant pink snails.

And we love them!!!

Thank you Art Basel! ๐Ÿ™‚

(Please vote for us here. Thank you!)

P.S.- Have a great weekend everyone!! We are going to chase some more snails. ๐Ÿ˜‰
