We finally did it! We took the children into the city today. Of course it was crazy busy there because of the holidays, but we still had a grand time. We drove in (amidst a lot of traffic) and visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I had no idea the museum was so vast! We visited the Egyptian rooms and the Arms and Armor rooms first. We figured Harris and Grace would be most interested in mummies and swords!
Before we went we read the book, "You Can't Take A Balloon Into The Metropolitan Museum of Art." It's a wordless picture book but tells a really fun story. Grace even spotted some of the art in the museum.
