Preserving Childhood Vacation Memories - Part I

We recently made oil pastel and water color pictures of our trip to the beach. The girls were able to take their fondest memories from the trip and make gorgeous pictures of their experiences.

Kira :: Swimming with Daddy

Kira :: Dolphin and Sand Dollar

Nola :: Shells on the Beach

I framed the pictures and displayed them in our living room for the girls to visit often.


  1. we would LOVEEEEEEEEEEE to do "a day of play"!!!!
    what a fun idea!
    your girls' artwork is amazing!

  2. That is such a good idea - many people don't even print out pictures anymore, which is a shame. Good to preserve memories like this - and make and event of it too :)
