Mother's Day Adventure

For Mother's Day, we took a trip to Baltimore to visit the American Visionary Art Museum.  This was our first time and I think everyone had so much fun taking it all in.  There is so much there to look at and even the spaces outside the building are covered in art.  If you're local or ever passing through the area, this needs to be a definite stop!  My favorite was an exhibit all about food, entitled Yummm! There's an entire room of art that's made from bread, a hall full of lunch boxes and food-related Post Secrets, and the neatest moving mandala constructed from items such as paper plates.  You can see that colorful piece in the photos below, along with an example of one of the pieces from the room full of bread.

Let's Try This Again

Just as I was trying to get back into the habit of blogging, life happened and either I got sick or a kid got sick, possibly both.  Then there was a vacation and some holidays and probably a lot of downtime where I could have been productive, but I chose to nap or read a comic book.  Anyway, the blog fell by the wayside yet again.  I was talking with my friend, Heidi, about how difficult it is for both of us get back into the habit of posting regularly.  We both have things to post and I always feel like there's something to ramble about or share.  So here I am making another attempt.  Maybe this one will stick!  If anyone has any tips to share in regards to being a more consistent blogger, feel free to shoot them my way!
