The library on base is our library. This kitchen is my kitchen, where I can nourish my family. We all sleep in the same bedroom here – our bedroom. There is now children’s art taped to our walls, and painted pumpkins decorate the end table. We’re finding local places we love to visit during the week, and having adventures on the weekends.
I’ve heard amazing things about the San Antonio Botanical Gardens so I knew it had to be on our San Antonio, TX itinerary. We went on Columbus Day, which happened to be a Little Sprout Monday.
I grew up going to the Detroit Institute of Arts with my awesome Great Aunt Gilda pretty much every year, and other museums here and there, and always enjoyed them. So when I found the San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA) during my googling, I added it to our San Antonio bucket list.
We went into San Antonio to visit the Riverwalk, and happened upon Artpace’s Chalk it Up event designed to bring visual art to the masses (and get families to participate in making it). We contributed regular sidewalk chalk doodles, but several larger groups had areas sectioned off that they were doing some hardcore art with. It was really cool to see so many people just having fun together, and to be a part of it.
