The evening was perfect, topped of by Aunt Caylyn's company. It ended with a trip to Trader Joe's and Orange Leaf!
When we moved to town 9 years ago, the local lumberyard was went out of business. Luckily, this forward-thinking community raised the support to convert the old lumberyard into a Community Arts Center. The Punkettes have enjoyed taking classes here.
We attended the Art Walk Friday evening, and found our brick with our name on it for the first time:
There were instructors with hands-on activities for the kids to do. Our friend Riley has been taking a sewing class and she was demonstrating her skills with her sewing instructor.
Violet was in her element at the recycled materials creation table.
We enjoyed visiting with the vendors outside to learn about how they make their items for sale.

She was in charge of the final touches.
I think they did a great job, and it tasted good too!

We have had a wonderful weekend of cousin camp with my niece and nephew.
The occupancy in my van was maxed out.
