A Trip to the Nelson…

Sunday we took a little trip to the Nelson Atkins Museum.

Here the monkey’s are standing by the huge birdies.

#4 loved this painting because he thought it looked like jelly fish.  Jelly

fish fascinate our family.

I’m not sure what #2 and The Man are looking at… but #4 is looking at

one of the Nelson’s guards.  He looks SO real.. but he’s not. Normally

wherever #4 is, #5 is also.. but he refused to be in photos..

See.. That’s the arm of The Man.. telling him to “Let your

mother take a picture.”

Here’s #5 in front of the painting he calls; “Give Peas a Chance.”

As soon as they get back to the farm..They are planning on making one of these

“mud-stick” horses themselves..

#4 loved the Impressionist the most.  This is a Monet.

#5 got over his fear of the camera long enough to do this.  He loves this sculpture.

He talked about this one.. and finding “The Thinker” all day!

#2 liked this painting of a boy and his father making wood

shoes.  Maybe it reminds him of  he and The Man working on

the fire alarm at church.

Holy Smokes.. there’s #3 where has she been all day?

The Man.. who is not crazy about art galleries.. said this was

his favorite painting.  I love that about him.

We had a great time…  and all the walking

Wore the monkeys out..
