Things we can’t wait to do!

June 6th, 2009 in Saturday: Shopping!

Summer brings another fantastic thing: community events and tons of them!

The Chalk Festival is a wonderful event put on by the Utah Foster Care Foundation. Their 7th annual Chalk Art Festival will be held June 19-20 along the Rio Grande Street at The Gateway in Salt Lake City and is completely FREE to the public. More than 100 professional, adult and student artists will transform the streets of The Gateway into a beautiful, temporary art gallery for the entire family to enjoy. The festival hours are June 19 from 4-9pm and June 20 from 10am-9pm.The festival also features a “Kids Korner” where children can create their own chalk art. There are 2,600 Utah children in foster care that are in need for loving homes and families. For more information visit and please feel free to take this write up and post it on your blog to help spread the word! We will be there hope to see you too!

We attended this music calss during the spring session and Bethany, the owner, will be doing a summer session as well. I was blown away by how much my girls loved playing together and I loved watching their love of music grow even more. The class is absolutely perfect! Be sure to sign up if you’re in the area.

And finally, what we have been waiting for all year–the Salt Lake Farmers Market! They are having a fun opening night celebration.
