Art Smarts Project

Here is Avery's latest Art Smarts project. Today she created a colorful bird on a lunch sack that was crinkled to give the appearance of Amate paper. This is my favorite one of her art pieces!

1st Visit to Bob's Big Boy

Today we had lunch at the famous Bob's Big Boy. Phil and I had remembered coming here many times as a kid and for some reason, this place always seemed to be one of my favorite restaurants to eat at.  Not sure if it was the all you can eat Sunday brunch or the declicious, little mandarin oranges I could never get enough! All in all, the food ended up being okay, not as good as I remembered, but they do offer a nice selection of desserts. Of course we couldn't leave without getting a picture of Avery and Callum standing next to the famous Big Boy statue. :)

Pizza Night

So Avery and Callum decided to help their dad with dinner the other night and make some delicious pizzas from scratch. Their dad cooks some awesome pizzas and this time wanted to get them involved. They each rolled their own  pizza dough and put their toppings on before cooking them in the oven. Oh, and their dad had made a couple of extra pizzas, pepperoni and basil, and barbeque rib with onions and barbeque sauce that were sooo delicious. We had so much fun making our delicious pizzas!!

                   Callum's yummy 3 piece pepperoni pizza!
                                  Daddy's very delicious pizzas!!

Avery's Art Project

Today was Avery's first day of the Art Smarts program. The students learn many different types of art and its offered after school, which is the best part! I tried to sign up my little guy too, but he's not ready just yet. I'm hoping once he sees all the cool art his big sister is doing, he'll want to do it. Avery had done a beautiful painting of the Statue of Liberty for her first project!
