Art Day

We check this out at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art:

Over Rainbows and Down Rabbit Holes: The Art of Children’s Books

This magical presentation features approximately 70 works of art created specifically for children’s books. These original works, seen as independent creations while connecting with their literary context, inspire the imagination and celebrate the creativity of making picture books for readers of all ages.

It was fun! Elijah was especially interested (though photos were not allowed in the actual exhibit) and we spent time in the center of the room, after checking out the art, reading the books from whence it came.

Then it was off to the beach to ride….

check out the Art Walk- weekly booths set up for local artists to display and sell their works…

and watch the squirrels play in the creek bed.

This was hysterical. The kids stood here like this for about 10 minutes. Almost immediately, hordes of adults started coming over to see what they were looking at. The squirrels drew quite a crowd (I’ve never seen baby squirrels and there were several here) as a result of Sadie and Elijah’s curiousity.

    See? Living proof that adults have a LOT to learn from kids. Those Santa Barbara adults are smart cookies!
