This past weekend the Mr. was out of town and we were lucky enough to have Grandma (my mom) come spend time with us. The Little and I always enjoy her company and I am especially thankful for the extra help, hands, and company when the Mr. is away.
On Saturday we decided to check out local Fine Arts Center featuring a Chihuly exhibit. We had a great time and the Little did exceptionally well for being in a mostly quiet/delicate atmosphere; it was fun to watch him check out certain pieces, especially appreciate anything to do with animals, and occasionally ask his new favorite question, 'what's thaaat?'
I didn't realize Chihuly drew and painted as well, but I particularly liked those pieces that were on display also. Such great colors!!
How cool is this bowl?! The inside, edge and outside were all different but went together perfectly. It's crazy to look at these and think and wonder how these were made by hand. So impressive. The light really illuminated all pieces and made every little detail and color stand out.
We were a little disappointed the main exhibit was only 2 rooms, really, with only one BIG piece (which we found out is always there). Either way, we made the best of it, checked out the other exhibits throughout the museum, and stopped by a 'family fun day' where the Little and Grandma did a quick art project.
As always, we love having special time with Grandma and appreciate all she does for us. It was a great weekend.
Thanks Mom/Grandma!! xoxo
