Well, we showed up on a rainy day to man (well, technically woman and kid) our booth at Arroyo Grande's very first art in the park.
I failed at getting many pictures, but did debut our newest offerings: copper wire hand wrapped tumbled stones and ammonite fossils!
Rocko wants to own a pet shop when he grows up, so he set up his sign with the names of the soapstone animals he was selling, spelled phonetically (can you see the "owl, lion, bison" in the picture?) in kindergarten writing, and outsold everyone else there. He took almost all of the money he made and spent it at other booths, buying a plant from Achievement House, a paper bunny filled with chocolate, and getting his face painted with a lovely rainbow. 🌈
The live bands were great, as were my friends, who helped out the entire day with the kids and booth (also the set up and take down). I'm blessed, for lack of a more fitting term; also grateful. It was so drizzly that I didn't get great pics. Except for this one:
Because the day was so dreary, very few people showed up. I suspect that the people who did were Arroyo Grande City staff who were feeling sorry for us. They did buy some stones though! Very kind of them.
The kids made a friend, enjoyed the bounce house and face painting, and were worn out by the end of the long day. We are signed up for three more of these this year at Elm Street Park: June 10, September 9, and December 9, 2023. We hope to see you there!
