Split Rock Waterpark!

Love this place! Ok, it is not the cheapest place to go but it was really fun. It was a kid-friendly space that is fun for adults as well. A big plus is the cleanliness. Maybe it is still a fairly brand new facility but it was worth the trip.

g especially loved the large water slides. I was so surprised that g wasn't freaked. I thought the size of it would scare her but she loved it and kept going up for more. One particular one was almost 3 stories up. It's great though that the place really had families in mind.

g art series #3


We went to Earth Day last weekend and g got her face painted for the first time. She picked a rainbow with a unicorn design that went down the side of her cheek. It was done really well. She loved it so much and was so inspired with it that she decided to do this drawing.

g art work series 2

I am continually amazed at the progress in g's artwork. It's too bad that I won't be able to upload every single one of them or figure out how to take a picture of them.

With the introduction of invisible tape, all her art have taken on 3D quality.

This one is of a cat bed. There is a cat sleeping underneath a bunny blanket. Everything is taped down so I can't photograph it individually. It also features a ladder, a chimney and an attached food bowl.

My g, the artist


AS requested, I am posting some of little g's art work. She is getting really good at it. Her work has become more and more elaborate. She does such volume of work that it has become a little difficult to save all of them as much as I'd like to.

My favorite to date (though I can no longer find it) is a flying ladybug complete with wings. The ladybug is also a vehicle. She cut out an image to represent each and everyone of us as riders and driver of the ladybug car which came with a steering wheel as well.
