Today I am thankful for a slower paced week...the boys haven't had weight lifting this week so that means less driving around for mom! Linking up with Michelle's Thankful Thursday :)

Last week I showed you part of this wall RIGHT HERE and I told you I'd show you a little more! It's just so much to take in all in 1 post! The first one is signed "Kyle Wilson Art" and the second one is signed but I just can't make it out...I'll give you another little peep next week!

Originally this old building, the Gill Memorial Hospital, was the Commonwealth's first specialty hostpital founded in 1926 by Dr. Elbeyrne Gill. Now it is home to RAMP...for more history on the old building CLICK HERE

This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago while we were checking out a festival.

Today I am thankful for swimming pools and night swims...last night after dinner Braden and I took a long swim. The pool has finally heated up to 80+ which is how I like it! I had forgotten how good you sleep after a good swim! Linking up with Michelle's Thankful Thursday

Keep cool!

a little late this week! Ashlyn and I worked the polls for the Virginia Primary yesterday...long day! Fun though...the people we work with are just so nice and fun to be around...and the voters are always friendly...and I didn't know that Meryl Streep's twin sister lives right here in Botetourt County...she came in to vote...seriously, this woman looked exactly like Meryl Streep! I told her so and she said that wasn't the first time she's heard that!

Happy Wednesday :)

Wingless Takes Flight

Wilson Hughes Gallery. 117 Campbell Ave SW . Roanoke . 24011

This wall on the side of the gallery is pretty awesome...all different work from different artists. I knew this one had to be a Toobz Muir painting when I saw it. His work is so unique. You might remember some of his stuff I've shown you HERE

About this one, taken from his website:
"Wingless takes flight"

Concept: Children teaching little birds how to take flight before they realize that they already have the power to leave the nest. 2010

Linking up with Monday Murals & Mersad's Through My Lens

I'll show you more of the wall next week!
