Best Field Trip Ever

I recently had the extreme privilege to attend the National Art Museum with Big Girl's kindergarten class.  I love art!  I have been trying to get there for months and when this chance came up I was first in line.  There wasn't enough time to see much.  But what we did see was fabulous.  Even this!  

In it's own weird way of coarse.

I came well prepared with gum, a book, and my ipod to entertain my girls on the bus ride.  Too bad they don't make headphones that split 3 ways.  The girl without a turn was always a bit blue.  Speaking of blue... check out this red and blue mobile that was over 70 feet long by Alexander Calder.  The kids really enjoyed his sculptures too.  I snapped this shot just before the guard told me no photography allowed.  So it's contraband pictures on the blog.

When we were riding back to the school on the bus I asked my daughter what her favorite piece of artwork was.  Not surprisingly it was the tunnel of lights we went through 5 times while waiting for the rest of the class to appear for lunchtime in the cafeteria.

Yes, everyone has their own idea of artwork.  
I would go back again and again!!!

I haven't been to an art museum in so long! I might have to go to the Guggenheim next month!

Looks like a GREAT trip. I love art museums too, and it has been way too long since I have been to one. I think this has inspired me to go!

I love illegal photographs. And I'm jealous of your daughter's field trip!

It'll be the apple orchard for us...

I loved the apple orchard in Iowa! Is it Wilson's? I learned more about apples than I ever knew before after visiting them.
