52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 5

Photobucket

A trip to the art museum.

In an effort to expose the boys
to the finer things in life,
we took a trip to Family Day at
The Georgia Museum of Art.

The whole event seemed very high brow to me.

There was a performance by young local musicians
who played their violins with all their might.

It was actually very beautiful.

Photobucket

We were surrounded by thought provoking art,
which provided many opportunities
for me to explain positive and negative space
and various other fancy art terms.

By far, there were two highlights for me though...

Photobucket

Griffin pretended to be a sculpture for five minutes...

Photobucket

and Koen led an old time revival
over in the FolkArt Exhibit.

I guess that we're just artsy like that.

Interesting shots! :))

Jessica Monte said...

I love going to the art museum with the kiddos (and without them too, lol).

I'm psyched about your 52 weeks of happiness. I'm definitely on board!

Heather H said...

Looks like a good day activity. Love the first photo!

Branson @ Reflection of Something said...

How fun! Even if it wasn't super exciting, I am sure the boys got something out of it... if only another great memory and photos to giggle at! :)

Lizzi said...

I adore how you're artsy like that!

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

I LOVE IT!!!! My favorite, favorite shot is the "revival" over the sculpture. He is a HOOT. Both your boys are so adorable.
Can you believe that as much as we love to do arts and crafts around here, I still haven't taken my children to the art museum? It's crazy. I love how children bring such fun and life to the stillness of a museum.
It looks like such a great day y'all had. Motivates me to try and plan a day like that for my crew. Hopefully they won't kick us out! :))
