The Art Institue of Chicago...

I took the boys to the Art Institute of Chicago, my very favorite art museum. They had fun. They were excited to see the originals of some of the paintings they had seen in many places. Their favorites were: A Sunday on La Grande Jatte by Seurat, The Bedroom and self portrait of Vincent van Gough. They also liked American Gothic by Grant Wood. It was a slightly different trip than I was used to...we walked much faster and it was a lot nosier than usual...but I loved sharing those works of art with the boys.

On our last day in the city, we waled around a lot. We loved the bean in Millennium Park. It is a huge metal bean! You can go underneath it and look at yourself. The kids could have spent hours there!

All in all it was a wonderful and adventurous trip. The boys were angels and it will be an experience to remember all of their lives.
