So tonight Austin is out camping in the wilderness with the Young Men in our ward. That means girls night out! My friend Marie invited me to go to Color Me Mine. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a place that has all these plain ceramic pieces (like plates, bowls, animals, etc) and you paint them however you want and then they fire it in their kiln and whala, you have a wonderful piece of art…well at least you hope. I decided to paint a cereal bowl for Kylie because she LOVES cereal. After I got done painting how I wanted it, I put paint all over Kylie’s hand and then she pressed it on the side. Yeah, she thought that was a hoot. When I let her go wild with the paint inside the bowl, she was in heaven…until I smashed her dreams with a wet wipe. She was going a little bit crazy with the paint and the inside, which at one point had a lot of bright colors in it, was turning into a poopy brown. So I told Kylie she had to stop and when I went to clean her hands, she used her free hand that wasn’t getting wiped to paint designs all over her legs…and her shorts. Oh well. I would highly recommend this place. It’s just north of Borders in the Riverwoods mall. It is kind of pricey though and be prepared to spend AT LEAST 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I get to pick up the bowl on Tuesday, so I’ll have to post how it turned out.
