C A M :: raleigh (contemporary art museum)

Ready for another great Raleigh destination?! This was from our field trip last week and the same day we visited lucettegrace (previous post) ...notice the theme - yellow ! :) 

To be honest, I had high expectations for this museum. Looks fun from the outside, and the location is great (warehouse district)...so I was the tiniest bit disappointed - but ONLY because the current exhibits weren't my favorite. They had about 4 artists' work on display and it just wasn't my thing necessarily...but, the museum itself is a great space filled with light and possibility. The kids really enjoyed the classroom where you could create your own works of art using a ton of supplies on hand. (I've learned that the boys are older now and they will scoff and complain about something for about 10 minutes - then enjoy it and get involved. Which is what happened in the classroom when Skye and I took our time and worked on some art. They eventually joined in and made some funky stuff ) 

I will be keeping my eye out for upcoming exhibits and next time bring a skateboard ! ((If you bring a skateboard you get in free:-)) 

On that same day in Raleigh we also saw an iMax movie about the national parks which was gorgeous. (There you go, Monica...more places to visit :-))

lucettegrace::raleigh




I'm blogging from my phone (amazing, right!) so I can't leave a link, but if you google it, you'll find the French bakery Lucettegrace. 

The kids and I went last week during our spring break while we were enjoying downtown Raleigh. We are having fun searching out the gems while exploring our "city of oaks" :) 

It's a bit pricey, so we picked out 3 desserts and split them all 4 ways. My fave was definitely the salted caramel brownie. But the passion fruit tart and creamsicle pie were good too. (And adorable)

It was all so cute...I'm loving  yellow right now!! I also love the window "mannequin" up there :)

Painting class !



I got to go to a painting class with my friend Kim. It was so fun and very relaxing just to paint what the teacher said to paint. I loved looking over at all the canvases- each with polka dots but still with differences and personality. Very fun to be the student instead of the teacher :-)
