Sweet Shot Tuesday




We went to an art museum last week. Actually we went to several museums last week. The art museum was not a big deal for the Bubs...at first. Mumbles, moans, groans and sighs could be heard from him. After a few too many of these emanations I gave him "the look" and he calmed down. He lightened up even more when he saw me taking photos like a crazy lady and giggling in excitement over some of the pieces. (Yes, I giggled.)


I'd grab him in my excitement and point out some fascinating fact or artwork and he'd listen in bemused silence...for a moment and then he'd trot off to see what his Daddy was looking at. He perked up when the Hubs and I spotted this exhibit that was interactive. The Bubs got a kick out of looking through a little acrylic ball and seeing a right-side-up Mona Lisa...made of 5,184 spools of thread! Brilliant!


It was neat to see what we all gravitated towards in the museum. When I later asked the Bubs what his favorite exhibit was he mentioned this one and the African/Tribal Art display with its headresses, masks and colorful ceremonial garbs.

Spools of thread? aMaZiNg! Neat shot....glad your son found some fun there :)

PS Pretty much just garter snakes around our house, so we knew he was safe in the rescue...trust me, when we visit family in South MS we don't even look twice when we see a snake (too many poisonous ones)!
