During the summer, nothing makes me happier than sharing the studio @mericherryla (on Instagram.) Here my grandchildren can create and spend hours exploring the objects (wire, paper, paint, fabric swatches, etc.) to build structures and collages as well as large pieces of art. Wonderful place to explore. Meri Cherry Art Studio in Tarzana, California.

Harken back to the old west at a very unique place to brunch or dine. This is such a great visit to days of Old California.
Growing up on the beach, I can vividly remember those wonderful summers with my family. Now I can share with my sons and daughters and my grand children. It is a thrill to be able to see them enjoy the ocean as I did and now as I DO watching them discover the beach.
The Chinese Garden at The Huttington, Pasadena, California is one of the most enchanting spots during the summer or throughout the year. It is like walking into a dream and another world. Hard to believe it is located in California. Chinese artisans were brought to California to recreate some of the most beautiful elements of a traditional Chinese garden.
Enjoyed a wonderful day at the Skirball Museum in Los Angeles (conveniently located off the 405 in close distance to the Getty Museum.) This museum has wonderful children education areas to explore. We visited the Art Studio where you can actually create things. This week the subject was “hats” and what fun we had watching and creating. The museum provides all the materials and scraps you need to make any kind of hat you can think of and it is all part of the general admission. This is a wonderful experience for kids and grown ups.
Duff’s Cake Mix on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, California is a great spot to take children; wonderful way for them to be creative and to create “edible art” for friends and family. I found the staff to be very helpful and accomodating toyoungsters and their parents or grandparents in tips and suggestions for decorating cakes and cupcakes. You can pick the flavor of the cake, icing, topings, decorative candies and decorations. We all had a wonderful time.
