We had our second pottery class two weeks ago. And today we are here to paint our masterpieces. Sloane made several happy face discs and a stalk of broccoli.
I even got in on the fun this time and made my own masterpiece. I is a kitty water bowl. It turned out really cute. But it wasn't what I envisioned.
Quinn made a turtle bank. He worked really hard on this and it turned out awesome!
Here is one side of my kitty bowl.
And another side.
And here is the whole thing. Now the pieces will be fired and we will pick them up next week.

We went to the Mystery Castle today with our Gamer friends.
There were all kinds of crazy things in this place
Looks like they fixed a broken pane of glass by mosaicing it. Very creative.
This is an outside fireplace
Sloane was looking out the window of the outside balcony
She was looking at this armadillo
One of the rooms was called the Saguaro room. At the time this house (castle) was built, this Saguaro was living.
This was a mantle on one of the fireplaces.
Connor said "Look! Three suns (sons)"
One of the many bookshelves. Can you see the cool bunnies on the top shelf? They are painted rocks.
I spy Sloane sitting on a witches lap.
Here's what the outside looks like.
And from further away.

We went for a walk to Walton Park today and Sloane practiced hanging and getting up on the bar...
Then Quinn and Sloane found worms in the wet soil. With all this rain we have been getting, the worms come out for a bit of sun. The kids thought that was pretty neat.
Here's Sloane looking for more worms.
Quinn, John and Keegan got a little see-sawing in.
