My NYC Guide: The Metropolitan Museum of Art with kids: Part 3

There are a million ways to have fun at the Met with kids. Here's one of my ideas. And another. And some official ideas. And here's what I did yesterday:

1. Spotlighted an Artist: I introduced the kids to Chuck Close. I asked them to make the same faces as the people in the portraits. Of course Owen wanted nothing to do with my art lesson.
2. Took a Break: Ran up to the Roof Garden, bought lemonade and chugged it. Owen won. Ella was disappointed there were no flowers in the roof garden. The sculptures let her down.
3. Took another Brake: Got out of the museum, crossed the street to William Greenberg Desserts for the best black and white cookies this city makes. The boys slept threw it.


4. Lived our Life: Headed back towards the Met and walked north to Ancient Playground.  Forgot to apply sunscreen.
5. Played: Played until their shoulders turned pink.
6. Finished: Pushed the boys home in the stroller. Ella used her scooter.

The reason for yesterday's trip to the Met was to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit but the line was 2.5 hours long . . . not worth it with the kids. But it's worth it to me! I already have a babysitter lined up so I can see the exhibit before it closes on Friday. I can't wait!

*You know the Met's entrance fee is a suggested donation, right? Pay whatever you want and the employees never flinch.

  1. When I took my class to the met they all took a picture of that Chuck Close print and said it looks JUST like me. I guess it kind of does...

I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice.

I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster .
