Day 3 of the 30-Day Challenge: Bay Village Arts

We ventured out to the west side of Cleveland for our activity today. To Bay Village, specifically, to the BAYarts Campus.
For those of you that don't know: BAYarts is located across the street from Huntington Beach and may look small at first – but you will be pleasantly surprised at how much this campus really has to offer. Carter and Avery are too young to take art classes (which BAYarts does offer - they even had some kids art courses taking place today), craft classes or really…most classes…but this does not mean that they are too young to appreciate the arts.

I plopped Avery down in her stroller and Carter, Avery and I strolled through the BAYarts campus. There’s a beautiful gallery (Carter found sidewalk chalk outside the door),

a cafĂ©, a red caboose (or as Carter called it – a “Wed CHOO CHOO”),
it even looked like there was an area for live music. I can only imagine how fun this area is when there are more events going on – or at night when the lights are lite.

After visiting the campus – we found a huge open field (just down the hill) where we chased bugs for a little bit (read: Carter ran after a weird bee-looking thing – while I followed him trying to explain that bugs don’t want to play, and Avery hung out in her car seat – most likely annoyed with being stuck in a field…in her carseat). Just to clarify - bug chasing was not on my list of things to do. It just happened to be something that this trip turned into. What can I do ... he's a boy.
