Another Mommy & Me crafts day!
We took a bath after all this..
What a beautiful mess.
Things Learned: No tape necessary. I thought tape would be a great add to our painted pumpkin. Ideally it would give nice clean abstract lines, but my one year old was so good at taping I think we overwhelmed our pumpkin with tape. After we removed the tape, there was barely any paint left. Note for next time- no tape. It looked beautiful and abstract without the tape.
I decided that we need to add more color since all the tape had most of the paint. We added pom poms and washi tape. I helped Noël B use a glue stick to attach the pom poms.
A pretty good first time
Mommy and Me arts & crafts time!
SUPPLIES: Paper towel or toilet paper rolls, washi tape, scissors, cardstock paper, beans and/or rice, pen
Success! P.S. these have been some great adds to our family musical worship time

getting ready for something new
The Huntington Library is a hidden gem in San Marino, CA. If you have never been, the Desert Garden alone is a must see. Your visit definitely does not need to be an all day event; however, there are some great picnic spots and places to hang out and relax. My advice, do not op for the Rose Tea Garden. It sounds like a perfect idea but the price coupled with the food and cramped space is not worth it. If anything, spend time walking outside and visiting the galleries. There is the infamous Blue Boy by Thomas Gainsborough and also now, Pinkie by Thomas Lawrence. You can try to get free tickets for the first Thursday of the month or just find a date that fits your schedule the best.
Anyways, here are some of my favorite pictures from the Huntington Library. Doesn't the scenery remind you of Jurassic Park??
I used a new online photo editor this time around. Not a huge fan.. but I wanted to give it a try
