Break Time

 I've outlined the trees, so that I can work more on the background. I'm not sure I like a few of the wool colors in the center of the trees, but that can easily be changed. I just wanted to get the shape of the trees.

I've spent a lot of time cleaning out this week. I've managed to clean out my youngest's room. Not an easy job! He even helped by sorting his junk drawers. I tackled the closet with all the clothes. I then started on my closet. I now have 10 garbage bags ready for donation pick up tomorrow.

After all that fun (NOT), I decided we needed a break. So, we drove to Kenosh, WI for a few hours of exploring.

 Our first stop was the Jelly Belly factory. We went on a tour, which stops in the store. All the flavors you can imagine - yum!

 We went to the Dinosaur Discovery Museum. It's a small one room museum, but it has lots of dinos in it.

 We went to another couple small museums, and walked along the lakefront of Lake Michigan.

It's nothing like the big museums of Chicago, but since the museums were free, it was worth a day to explore.

I have taken two classes on field trips to the Jelly Belly Center. I hope you came home with some big bags of belly flops!
