Aby-a-Day – July 20: Snapshots of ArtBeat (Hipstamatic Monday)

This past weekend was ArtBeat, Somerville’s infamous art festival.

As always, Jacoby and I went out to participate. It’s been a while since we’ve been out together, since Jake’s not currently doing therapy work. He really seemed to miss his stroller!

He also seemed to have missed riding the T.

At least, he seemed to be happy to be out and about meeting people and getting admired.

I have to admit, I’ve missed going places with him, too.

Once we got to Davis Square, I got our tags. This is my 16th one!

Jake got his tag, too, of course. This is his 6th ArtBeat – he’s been coming with me since 2010.

We had our traditional lunch – Redbones BBQ!

It was a bittersweet ArtBeat, though, since it’s probably the last one we’ll be able to go to.

It was a long day, and tiring in a good way. When we got home, we just relaxed in the art room, me on my cushions and Jake on his S-curve.
