A Day at the Museum

I am blogging between phone calls, laundry, and enjoying some long lost peace and quiet. It's been one of those days. Well, not entirely. Maddie and I decided we needed an adventure today. So, together we braved DC. We headed to the Hirshhorn Museum (Smithsonian) of Modern Art. It was really cool-some pieces were a little too cool (read weird) for me. There were some installation pieces that were made out of flourescent lights and loud sounds-we weren't into those. These pic's are a few that we did enjoy. The first is cool because it was so big and so bright-and come on, it's kid colors! The next one, I really liked. It's a painting by Alex Katz called Ada and Vincent in the Car and for some reason it struck me as interesting and beautiful. The third pic is here because Madeline was really interested in it. It's by Jean Debuffet and it's called Three Masks: Rene Pontier, Andre Claude, Robert Polguere, 1935. She kept looking at the masks and laughing. We obviously have different tastes, but we had fun.
After the museum, we walked through the garden they have there. I fed her some food and then we headed home. She slept for a total of 15 minutes this whole afternoon! Once we got home, she wanted to continue practicing walking-therefore, no nap. Needless to say, she is in bed now and Gabe is home. Time to eat dinner :)

Such the wordly baby girl you have there! Already into the finer things in life, like art museums ;) I love the pictures, she's like the traveling gnome that shows up in the pictures all over the place, especially while chillin in the stroller :) (not that she is a gnome, you know what I mean right?). Sounds like a packed day yesterday. Let me know what you're up to this weekend. Love Lex

Thanks, Lex. She is like a gnome :) This weekend is going to be sOOOOOOOOOOOO hot here (yuck). We are going to Charlottesville tomorrow for Maddie's second cousin, Grayson's baptisim. We'll be gone all day and then probably resting on Sunday. I'll let you know. Thanks for commenting!!!
