We Did It!

September 18, 2008 at 12:30 pm (Entertainment, family, funny stuff)

After an hour riding the Trax train and 1 1/2 hours of waiting in line, we got to see the Monet to Picasso exhibit.  It was really quite amazing.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many real paintings done by so many famous artists in one place.  It was really interesting to watch DD#2 who has a definite interest in art.  Before entering the exhibit, they give you an audioguide.  DD #2 spent her time looking for works of art with numbers on them so she could dial them in and listen to information about them.  DD#1 and I learned to make ourselves comfortable when we were done with a room and wait for DD#2 to finish.  She made me a little nervous at the Renoir and Van Gogh paintings.  She walked right up to the guard ropes and then leaned over as if to put herself nose-to-nose with the painting!  LOL…I just reached over and yanked her back.  And when we left, we got free passes to come back to the museum another time because of the long wait in line.
