Max (my almost 11 yr old) and I decided that we needed a date night before the baby arrived. There were a few things on the table, the art museum being one of them, but we hadn’t decided. When a facebook friend posted this picture (below), along with an invitation to come do some quilling at the museum for free, it sealed the deal.
So the plan was made. Picasso exhibit, followed by some quilling, followed by chocolate fondue at The Melting Pot. It was the perfect date.
On our way to the Melting Pot, we saw a gay rights activist group doing some sort of event. Some of them were holding up a sign that read “Honk for Homos.” We honked like crazy, and they whooped and cheered. It was awesome. Max said, “Why isn’t everyone honking? Who wouldn’t honk for homos?” I honestly didn’t know the answer to that one.
It was a wonderful date night. We laughed so much, and had so much fun. It was the perfect bonding time just 3 days before our new baby would arrive. I love this kid past the last nothing.
What a wonderful date night! Could anything top Picasso AND fondue?
We can’t go to the Nelson without having to go down to see the piece in the fourth picture. It was on the summer sculpture tour and my kids became obsessed with it. And maybe I did too. We know more about that piece than nearly any other piece in the collection.
