Another weekend at home is just what I needed after all the fun I had last weekend. I will post about that eventually. I think I'm still recovering, but it was all worth it.
After a fun time with some friends Friday night, we hit the town on Saturday. My sister and I took her two oldest on an artistic adventure. Our first stop, where I took NO photos, was at Price Nursery for Art in the Garden. My nephew's teacher was one of the artists, as well as friends, Sarah Lytle and Robin Rowe. All fabulous artists with great works.
Next stop...Triad Lighting. We went by to see Cousin Courtney's refurbished furniture that she has been working on with her mom. Great stuff, but of course, didn't pull out the camera until we were almost out the door. Hope to see her stuff on Facebook soon. If you need lighting or tile flooring, go see the Huggins at Triad Lighting!
Next stop was the grand opening of Staples. Yes, seriously, we stopped at Staples. Only because they had giant balloons and lots of flags all over the worst parking lot in town. Really, it is the worst in town and the people using it can't park worth a crap either. I digress. The boys wanted to check it out but I was disappointed because they weren't giving out anything. I'm all abou free, right?
Next stop was the Dollar Tree. My nephew has severe nut allergies and they have nut free candy corn there. I stocked up for him and we found these fabulous glasses, too.
Pretty soon, it was lunch time and there is no better place for lunch than Krispy Kreme. This, my friends, is why I am THE BEST AUNT EVAH! Who doesn't like doughnus for lunch?
After "lunch"we walked over to the High Point Public Library for Art on the Grass as well as the weekly farmer's market. This was very interesting and not very well publicized around town. I only knew about it because I saw the Shop Local post for it on Facebook. Otherwise, I hadn't heard about it.
We watched theGreensboro Scottish Dancers perform several dances. The boys were not that interested, but it was a great cultural experience.
Everyone wanted to head home and get the paints out. My sister had taken the boys to the Plein Air Paint Out last weekend and they were chomping at the bit to do some of their own painting. Love that these kids love art. Our whole family is artistic and we love seeing their excitement toward the arts. They were even more excited that I had actual canvas for them to use, too.
It might just be me, but I think these guys are very talented!
Next weekend....it's History Rocks! at the High Point Museum AND High Point Get Down beer + food + music festival on Saturday night.
Linking up with LeeAnn today. Join us!
