Sweet Shot Tuesday~














This Summer, for me, will always be known as "The Museum Summer". With the heat being so intense the last few weeks, we've made frequent use of museums of all kinds. Of course, the local (and not so local) children's museums were the boys' faves. Everything was interactive and geared towards kids of all ages and development levels. The boys loved playing and we loved that we very rarely had to say no. It was a freeing experience for the Hubs and me (Poppi, too)!

I absolutely loved the studio area in the latest children's museum. Lots of beautiful sunshine streamed in the windows, children's creations were hanging everywhere and art supplies were stuffed in every nook and cranny just waiting for little hands to use them. Very old exposed brick made up one wall...I just ran my hand across it, fascinated with the texture.

As enthralled as I was with that inspiring space our little E-man captured my full attention when he grabbed a crayon and, after his Daddy gave him a piece of paper, started to draw. For the first time. Most definitely a sweet moment...


Thanks for stopping by!

Really neat, Anna. Is that in your home? I love all the windows and the wood floor and the railing and... you get the idea.

So great that you were able to capture this special moment. You could frame the photo with the art, cute!

Eeek! Little paint brushes!!

Swoon! Little crafts!

Oh, you are so creative and I'm so jealous. :-) Love it all! Too funny that you mentioned the museum. We're heading there tomorrow for the same reason you mentioned. Soooo hot!

And you're so sweet for worrying about me. Is that the creepiest thing ever? It takes a lot to spook me, but that was really scary. Next time I'm taking the hubs for backup. ;-)

Such a sweet moment, capturing his first art eXperience for posterity... The children's museum sounds delightful. Like you, I would have been irresistably drawn to the teXture of the eXposed brick wall, enchanted by the natural light streaming in and the delicious art supplies all around. But your little guys' first stroke of crayon on paper transcends it all. Simply beautiful!
