Take a mural tour through downtown Burlington
Take a trip through downtown Burlington to see some really cool murals.Posted — Updated
My youngest daughter, Vivia, is an artist to her core. She blows us away with her drawings, attention to detail, and use of color. On a recent Saturday, she wanted to paint but felt uninspired.
What made the occasion even more special was having "G-ma" join us. It was my mom's first visit in almost two years due to the pandemic. Grandparents can make any occasion better!
The mommy-daughter fun was unmatched as we played around and snapped photos. Both of my daughters are attracted to colorful spaces but I saw the light of creativity turn on in my little artist.
At this point it was lunch time. If you're a parent or caregiver, you know hungry kids and having fun are figments of the imagination. I'm yet to find the two coexisting.
It was my hope to show you a true Burlington dining experience but McDonald's won this battle. It's hard to compete with a BTS and a Saweetie meal. They’re entertainers, by the way, with their own meals there. And no worries... Burlington has a surreal amount of restaurants to explore. We'll be sure to taste our way around and take you with us!
Have you visited the places mentioned above? Also, have you seen other works by Mauricio Ramirez or Gina Franco? I'm always adding to our list of things to do.
Just so you know, my daughter grabbed her art supplies as soon as we got home. She disappeared into her world of creativity for what seemed like hours. I call that a win! The mission was wholeheartedly accomplished.
Remember, an adventure is what you make it. It can be as far away or as close to home as you’d like. And depending on your intention for the day, your chosen activities can be all fun and games. Or, they can serve as education and inspiration. My vote is combining a bit of it all!
