Annikah and I are back to our routine today and took a break this morning to go check out Anni’s first art display. I took the suggestion of a great friend to submit some of Anni’s recent artistic expressions to a local kid’s art gallery display at a local coffee shop called the The Grind. All three of the pieces I submitted for her were displayed on the wall in the cafe when we stopped in this morning (minus some buttons and gems that fell off in the mail :)). Anni recognized her pictures and I was a proud Mama who almost sat on top of a poor guy just trying to enjoy his coffee to get a shot of her with her art. Beck and Aislin met us there and we got to see Indi and Ais’s awesome original works as well. Ais & Anni then enjoyed splitting a cupcake (most of which eventually ended up in the floor) while Beck and I enjoyed some iced lattes. After the art-licious time we headed to the park before the girls had a chance to tear apart the coffee shop. We enjoyed the beautiful weather with great friends.

*Anni is celebrating cinco de mayo by sporting the dress we got her in Cozumel!!
