The large rock sculpture was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to make.

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.

I easily hit 10,000 steps on my pedometer that day.  With many sections left to explore, we’re looking forward to next summer.
