As a mother, sometimes it can be tricky coming up with things to do on a day off from school. After Blake made plans with a friend, Marlee and I decided to introduce Carter to one of our favorite places... The Painted Pot in downtown Rochester. I remember dragging Mark there while we were dating, and now its a perfect place to take the kids, express our creativity, and spend some quality time together. As you can see, Carter is learning to express himself through paint. Lets just hope next time he will paint more on the pottery, and a little less on his face!
