The Pottery Place

The week before school started my friend Jamee and I took our kids to Champaign for one last hoorah. Our friend Amber had raved about the Pottery Place so we could not wait to try it out.

Painting his oatmeal bowl

The fine chocolate dish Jack
painted for Mam

Finished products (I did the pitcher)
before firing

This can be the cover of their
wedding programs.

We ate lunch at a BBQ joint
inside an old red barn
right next door to the Pottery Place.

We all gave it two thumbs up.
Very good food and really cool decor.

A ride on the merry-go-round at
the mall to end the day.
A week later our stuff was finished
Professionals we are not, but I love how it all
turned out. Jack was impressed with how
shiny it all was.
Jack was supposed to save this for Christmas
but he could not wait.
Mam loved it!!

Painting pottery was a great time.
I recommend it highly and think that pretty much anyone would
have a good time.
We can't wait to go back.

Looks like a lot of fun! We're planning a trip just for that sometime... when we find a free weekend.

We did something similar pre-tots in CO. Had a great time. Never thought of taking the tots, will have to do that sometime!
