Mangos & Frida

Kelli is queen of getting people together and yesterday was no exception. Mexican food at Mangos and notecards at the Mesa Arts Center.

The kids & I got there early and looked at some of the art on the street downtown.

After a great Mexican lunch we headed over to the art center to make Frida Kahlo cards.
The teacher had lots of rubber stamps and different stations set up.
Hannah chose to go with another group that had girls her age. In a twist of fate, she had taken a dance class 4 years ago with them! What a small world.
Simon & I finishing up our embossed cards. They both did a great job and have note cards on which to write their Christmas thank you notes.
We also visited my Dad & Linda to pick up my bike that Dad put back together. Thanks Dad! I took a spin on it this morning and it works great!

We also hit IKEA on the way home and bought lights and a few other sundries. You KNOW you can't go to IKEA without spending some money. ;)

it is so cool that you guys all got to go. I totally wish I could have gone, but the boys have been grounded from anything remotely fun, they have been hellions this past week.

Oh that looks like so much fun! =)

I know what you mean about ikea, I went there over the holidays and the pull was so strong we drove 4.5 hours to get there and then ended up coming back with furniture strapped to the roof! ;)
