Hitting a museum may have been an aggressive plan the day after the game...but we went for it and the Matisse exhibit met all of my high expectations. I look forward to returning, solo, to soak it up a bit more. However, going with the kids was also tres special.

I do hope they remember days like today, I certainly will. Days when Matisse exhibits are less than a mile from their bedroom. Days when we skipped school because we were out late at a football game, and then used the day to go to a museum. Days when we rode the bike through the gusty wind, laughing and singing all the way. Days when we should have been home packing, because we are about to go on vacation - again. 

Amsterdam, we adore you. Matisse, we adore you too buddy. Thanks for today.

Note: I used to think it was weird when people snapped photos of art in a museum...but now I am one of those people. With kids in tow, we blow through so fast, I love to come home and soak up the photos...and share them with the kids for discussion that is sometimes hard to have in the moment. They also serve as inspiration for future projects.
No doubt this one is my favorite.  I love it!  
The kids room is pretty fabulous. Below is the entrance.  There is also an interactive tour for kids, but the exhibit was so crowded...and I worried that may be a bit much for us today, so we kept it mellow and moved at our own pace.
