I’ve finally gotten around to uploading some pictures from my birthday that was on Tuesday. I complained this year that my mom always bought boring birthday plates–solid colors or just balloons–so my sister told me to pick out some plates at Target. I picked some pirate plates just for the fun of it!
So last night was the big night! The “Art of Recovery” art show’s opening night. Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Baddy (who is not
always bad), and I headed up to Fredericksburg (VA, of course!) to the gallery to attend the opening. It was about a 2 hour, 10 minute drive, so it wasn’t too bad. We got there in plenty of time, so we had dinner at a Mexican restaurant and then walked around the mall for a little while before heading to quaint little downtown Fredericksburg to the PONSHOP art gallery.
I mentioned in a previous post that they had incorporated my painting into their promotional materials advertising for the art show. It was cool to actually see the posters in person! The owners of the art gallery, Gabe and Scarlett, were two of the nicest (and coolest) people I’ve ever met.
Here are some pictures:
Here’s a very short video of Riley’s two new tricks… “Peekaboo” and “Roll Over.” She learned Peekaboo in about 10 minutes and she learned Roll Over Saturday afternoon and was able to do it Sunday morning for Aunt Baddy and Uncle Jimmy. Smart cookie. Well, maybe not so smart…I tried teaching her to Roll Over before, and she didn’t get it so I gave up on it. She caught on quickly this time though, so I guess she was ready. She won’t attempt to do it if she feels like she doesn’t have enough room to roll over…crazy girl!
And how crazy is this…it was 73 degrees yesterday and today it was 35 and flurried for about 30 minutes!! We can’t wait until the return of warmer weather!
This is the last week of my nutrition class and I have all of my assignments done…except my paper! Eeek! I have to turn that in by Saturday night, so my blog visiting time will be limited for a few days.
