Artsy Date

Hey, peeps.  Hope everyone had a good week.  We ended ours with a little trip to the art museum.  

It was beauuuuuuutiful today with temps in the 80s.  So lovely.

And for that reason, we spent some time outside the museum before going in -- enjoying the pretty fountains and peaceful surroundings.

We also walked across the street to a park for a few minutes. We could have stayed out there all day.  Unfortunately, the plans were to do the museum for a couple of hours, eat lunch, and have M napping at her regular time.

And that we did.

Last year when we visited this museum, I told myself I'd gradually show M the REAL galleries every time we visited (versus going straight to the kids rooms).  There's some pretty interesting stuff there. Like any child, she's inquisitive and will have questions about pretty much the learning opportunities are there.

We visited our first "real" gallery today.  Naturally she gravitated toward this house, which to her looked like a great place for her dolls and dinosaurs to hang out.  I had to remind her not to touch.

I was fond of this one myself.

She was over this gallery pretty quickly, so we then headed to the kids section.  They basically have two rooms for children -- one geared toward baby/toddler/preschool kids, and the other toward school-aged kids. M is at that age where she can enjoy both rooms.

And she did.

Since we were downtown, we went to my favorite chicken finger spot for lunch.  I'm not a big chicken finger person -- unless it's THIS place.  And since they closed the two locations closer to our side of the metropolitan area, I like to go here anytime I'm downtown.

M doesn't really like chicken fingers, either, but she ate two.  They're SO good.

Anyhoo, being downtown was a treat for M...

The restaurant is in the heart of downtown, and right near two hospitals.  So there were buses, trolleys, ambulances, and firetrucks galore.  We sat outside so we could enjoy the beautiful weather and see all the cool vehicles passing by.  

It was a great day.

Hope you guys have a great weekend!
