Finally, a life goal has been accomplished! We went down to the Art Institute yesterday and had a great time! I took my kids, my mom and met up with my mother-in-law downtown. MIL (Mother-in-Law) is an artist herself and was a great guide for us.
She has great patience with the kids and knew interesting information about the paintings and displays we saw. Here they are looking at one of my favorite parts of the institute: a collection of miniature rooms that are decorated in different styles and eras. Like a very detailed dollhouse (Gramma W, this would have been your FAVORITE!).
We ate at the Garden Restaurant there. Food was good, service…um… I don’t know. Not so good. But the food was fine!
How did SuperBoy do, you ask? He did fine! He had his moments…but we just kept trying to distract him with questions about the paintings. He kept repeating his latest phrase, “This is getting tiring.” And I took a picture of how he looked at some of the rooms:
But I considered this a valid option for a five-year-old viewing Renoir. He was quiet!
