Imagine eating lunch next to that gorgeous sculpture? We have a local outdoor sculpture museum that offers a free day each month during the summer. And we took advantage of it.
It is a huge space, with acres of beautiful looming sculptures that you can appreciate from afar or close up. While the mini-ions aren’t encouraged to touch them, there is so much room for them to run around that it mostly isn’t a problem. It gives me a chance to walk through and soak in some culture that I’m desperately missing, while not having to worry too much about the havoc the mini-ions are causing.
And it is breathtaking to me, to take in these sculptures while Mini-ion #2 marches between trees, singing an ode to her carrot stick. While most people take in these art pieces in perspective to their space, the season and the effects of nature, I get an added perspective, the mini-ions reaction as well. Most of the sculptures they felt looked like giant playgrounds, occasionally they had some amusing interpretations as well.
I easily hit 10,000 steps on my pedometer that day. With many sections left to explore, we’re looking forward to next summer.
