Hello, everyone! Just for a change of pace, I thought I would bring you something interesting, from our sidewalk to the Internet. Enjoy!

Around the Fourth of July last year, we (and by we I mean myself and Jewel) got into the mood to do some chalk with Raya. The results were, to say the least, a bit astonishing, and not a little eye-catching.

We did new drawings all summer, and then this summer as well. The pictures you see here are all either from this year or last year.

It was a start. The drawings ranged from the patriotic to the mundane.

A campfire... maybe? Raya's work.

We discovered that Tangled was well-worth drawing out…

I hope you enjoyed our little sidewalk chalk exhibition… which certainly gives a new meaning to the term “sidewalk exhibition”, doesn’t it? May the Road go ever, ever on for you and those you love, until you turn at last to home afar.
