Father's Day

Today we spent the afternoon at the Gahanna Creekside Jazz and Blues Festival.

The festival is mostly about eating, and of course listening to jazz music. I had to have my usual festival treat, which is the Schmidt's cream puff (forgot to take a picture of this). It was great, as always.

We spent some time lounging around the fountain area.

And dipping our feet in the water.

Avery saw some other kids start wading in the water and of course tried her best to join them. A security officer quickly came down to get everyone out of the water though and ruined the fun :)

So we found another fountain that Avery could get wet in (it was HOT outside), and she had a good ol' time there and proceeded to get her entire outfit soaking wet. Oh well! A little water never hurt anyone.

We spent the rest of the day like this:

Looking at the back of Avery as we chased her around the festival. Our little track star. That girl loves to run!

Here's the only picture I got of Abe and Avery for father's day. She's not one for posing these days, so it's as good as we could manage :)

Bean Talk

I am so happy to have been picked as a guest designer for Jillibean Soup products. Today is my day on the blog...pretty cool to see my picture and my work up there with so many designers whose work I admire (I only wish I could pull off some of the stuff they come up with!).

The Jillibean Soup blog is called Bean Talk . If you haven't checked out the site before, there's lots of inspiring projects on there and more than a few giveaways/challenges (in fact, they're running a Sprout contest now and the winner gets $100! Deadline is June 15th).
