~~I mentioned before that I was going to be away from the blog. I didn't really feel comfortable saying that we were going out of town, but now I can share.
We haven't taken a family vacation in quite a while and the girls have always wanted to ride the train so we decided to take the Amtrak Heartland Flyer from Oklahoma City to Fort Worth for a little weekend getaway. It was so much fun. We had a nice time just being together.
~~We went to the Ripley's Believe it or Not and the Wax Museum on Thursday. On Friday we went to the big Galleria mall in Dallas because we had to see the new American Girl store. The girls were very excited about that! It was huge; 2 stories tall. We ate at a McDonald's that was shaped like a happy meal box. That was a big hit with the girls, lol. On Saturday we visited the historic Fort Worth Stockyards and watched them run the cattle down the street. We also did some swimming at the hotel, walking in the park, shopping, and just lounging out in our room together. All in all it was a nice time.
~~We're back home and I'm ready to get back to work. My goal was to get this painting done before January was over. And since there's only a few days left, I'd better get busy! :)
I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed.
