So here's a snapshot of our First Friday art crawl, family-style.

|A weird tag we keep seeing everywhere in the city. Maybe a graffiti artist is expecting?|
|We were shocked to see these guys when we came around the corner. They were playing traditional blues rock|
|A costume designer poses for some promotion|
|One of my favorite paintings of the night|
|Daddy caught us by surprise! Mommy kissing Ev while she eats cheese|

As the weather gets warmer, the people really come out in droves to see what Kansas City artists have been up to. We saw some street performers, people selling art out of a wagon, hula girls doing their thing, and a one-man-band called Monster, whom I absolutely loved. Everleigh kept saying "go see the ga-wa-wees" and "go see the awt". It was pretty cute. I also got to tour my own employer's Sunshine From Darkness exhibit, which featured art by clients with mental illness. Very neat stuff.
While it's nice to get away without Ev once in awhile, we really love our family-dates too, and First Friday is a family night tradition in our home, dating WAAAAAY back :) Do you have fun family traditions or kid-friendly family dates you go on?
