Glow with the show - Annual Passholder review

Disneyland had a great World of Color special event for annual passholders the weekend of June 29th.  You had to register for it ahead of time in person, and Theresa and I weren't able to make it to Disneyland in time to register.  Luckily though, our friends Steph and Farman were about to, and they invited us and Jacob to come along with them.

Painting with Friends

It's been way too long since we've had a painting day at our place.  Somewhere around 16 months I think.
We had a record turnout, with 9 people showing up to work on a painting.

It all starts by using a projector to project the image on the canvas.  You then trace out the image on the canvas.

Pasadena Chalk Festival

On Sunday, Theresa, Jacob and I joined Ruston in Pasadena for the 20th annual Chalk Festival.

You can read all about it here in the Pasadena Star News - Pasadena Chalk Festival

The massive, two-day display of temporary art - recognized as the largest street-painting festival in the world - has drawn to a close. But not before attracting well over 100,000 art-lovers to the heart of Pasadena to witness it.
"It's just a fun atmosphere and great art," said Theresa Flowers, who strolled the grounds of the Paseo Colorado with her husband, Michael.
The couple said they were most impressed by the lifelike depictions some of the artists created with their chalk, such as a representation of a Time magazine cover featuring Albert Einstein and a chalk rendition of Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night."

Jacob's Summer BBQ

Saturday night and Jacob is having a great big gathering for his friends.

Cars Land is open!

After so long waiting, Cars Land is finally open!
