Oh to be a child again! I would love to be let loose in that acrylic room and slosh paint around.

Looks like a very fun place for a child to hang out! Is that a bit of crafting residue I see on patient Karla's hand? Ha! Did you bring that with you, or was it acquired at Discovery Zone? : ) Aaaaaand I'm still lovin' that collage you're giving away!

This place looks like loads of fun. Luv the acrylic room for painting. A sheet of acrylic and some finger paints may be an addition to the back of the shed. :)

Peggy Lee

what a great place to make summer memories...she looks like she is having a ball..
Oh yes love that art piece...

Looks like a fun place and I love the painting room! One of my favorite expressions is "yippee skippee"! Love that collage you are giving away.

I always have crafting residue on me! Or like Sugarwings says, I have project all over my hands.

What a fun place!

Isn't enjoying Gramie Time just the best! My four grandkids bring joy to my life...and I see the same is true for you.
Love your collage work...soooooooo gorgeous!


The discovery center looks great -- I'm wondering who was having more fun?! The collage -- perfection!


It's so cool that Grammy appears to enjoy the Discovery Zone as much as Sugarwings. How much fun is that? When I taught 4th grade I always took my chicks on a field trip to the Children's Museum in Bettendorf, Iowa. It was rewarding to see them interact with the displays, as well as learn with hand-on activities.

Thanks for sharing.


I love that you and SugarWings do so much together. What a neat place.


I love being with small children..so much fun and drama...can I come with you to the child's centre? lol...have a good trip away...


Another gorgeous piece of art...and so shabby. I so love hearing about your adventures with sugarwings and dewdrop. Gorgeous little ladies.


Would lv 2 win, lv your art, can't wait 4 thenext swap!!!!



Karla...see if they offer a DISCOUNT to get in, if you buy a summer pass or something? I love Children's Museums...

I still say Yippee! Yippee Skippy, actually! If you are going to Nags Head be sure to check out Manteo! You will love it!


She is such a cutie, Karla! And I sure love that lovely creation of yours. Hope it will be mine!!

Have a great time...such a lovely area!

Karla, when I visited your site last night, I went to one of your old posts, when you were showing photos of your kitchen remodel...it gave me courage and hope...we are in the middle of a mini-remodel that seems it will never be done! I tend to want things done yesterday! Your comments are always right on the mark, and the pictures were beautiful. Patty in Kansas


That looks like such a fun place for the little kids - educational and fun!
Hope you're enjoying your trip!


I hope you're having fun in NC! I want to tag along on one of my husband's business trips this summer, too, if I can.

I want to play in the paint room! How super cool is that!

I am in love with all the collages! I'm so glad I picked today to get all caught up. I thought the one, from the post after this, was my favorite, but now I think this one might be...
