The blank walls called out to us, and we knew they wanted to be covered with works from our staff, all ocean- and Boston Harbor- themed of course! Creatures of all sorts flooded my mind, blabbering about to be painted first. Sea horses, crabs, lobsters, sea stars, barnacles, whales, striped bass, herring, and seaweed were already dancing across the white canopies of streamlined sheets of paper.

My hopes were too big for me to follow up on, but most of the Junior Program Assistants (fondly referred to as JPAs) helped paint the 15 or so marine animals that we were going to cut out and tape onto the sheet. Rustic red, yippy yellow, bronzing brown, perplexing purple, bolding black, and the Big Blue were splashed across the 8 1/2" by 11" piece of paper!

I had a blast just staying inside and just painting again, but I cannot wait for the AABH trip out tomorrow with my first trip with the little bro - Vinh!
