For the next several posts, i will be showing pictures that I took at Cheekwood. If you are not familiar with the Nashville area, Cheekwood is a botanical garden and art museum. Currently they are featuring an exhibit by glass artist Dale Chihuly. I first saw a piece of his when we were in Wisconsin a couple of years ago at the Milwaukee Museum of Art. I started seeing ads for the Chihuly exhibit after the first of the year and after a little googling found out that this was the same artist. There are actually two exhibits in town right now. One is at the Frist Center for Visual Arts and the other at Cheekwood. Kip arranged for the whole family to join us at the Frist on my birthday and then this past week we finally made it to see the outdoor stuff. Wow these are just amazing. Hope you enjoy my pics!

Making Pizza

Samantha spent the day over her on Monday and we made pizza for dinner. Well, I made and rolled out the crust, she did the rest. Pretty tasty!

S'mores treats

I  had to take a picture of these to share. They were heavenly! I made them for craft night and a fellowship dinner at church last week. They are a Pampered Chef recipe. It is a graham cracker crust with a layer of chocolate, then a marshmallow cut in half, baked and then dipped in chocolate. So far off my healthy eating plan, but so worth it as a treat!
