2013 Plaza Art Fair (Event Pics)

Locals, it's your last day to make it to this year's Plaza Art Fair. Henry and I went yesterday and ran into a couple friends along the way.

You could spin the wheel for a prize at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art's tent.

I won a t-shirt!

We ran into some of our friends in the children's activity area.

Henry wasn't sure what to make of the giant animals at first so he just ignored them.

But once he got out of the stroller, he decided that he loved the lion.

My friend Isidoro met up with us :)

After a while, Henry wanted to get back out and walk around. 

And then he asked to be picked up almost immediately after, which was adorable.

If you went this year, what interested you the most? I really loved the wooden sculptures that I have a picture of up there, and I liked all the booths that the museums and performance organizations had.

Death and Life

I buried my last grandparent last Thursday. It was sad, and it kind of felt like I was burying my childhood.

Two days later, I celebrated my 32nd birthday with a 1930's-themed cocktail party. Matt was our bartender and he did a fantastic job. It was kinda hard to be joyful after experiencing yet another death in the family, but having friends around to celebrate really helped.

2013 KC Chalk & Walk Festival (Event Pics)

This past weekend was so freaking hot! I can't believe I got my drawing done, especially since I worked really slow the first day cause my last surviving grandparent had died the night before. And then I didn't have as much help as I usually do from Matt because on Sunday he got so sick from the heat that he started throwing up and had to go home. But I finished regardless and I think it looked pretty good!

 From left to right: Nicole, Amy, Beth, Me, Natalie. We all did images from Studio Ghibli films.

 Amy chose an image from Ponyo.

 Nicole drew an image from Spirited Away.

 Beth chalked something from My Neighbor Totoro.

 I chose Princess Mononoke.

 Natalie drew an image from Howl's Moving Castle.

Amy's finished drawing!

 Nicole's finished product!

 Beth's nearly-finished drawing.

 My finished drawing!

 Natalie's finished drawing.

My sister watched Henry both days and he came by for a visit Sunday.
He liked running around in Crown Center more than being outside though.
 Me & my friend Amy - who I first met at the KC Chalk & Walk many years ago.

 Amy and her team's nearly-finished drawing.

Thanks to everyone who braved the heat to come out and see us create!
