Metropolitan Museum of Art. Jackie dubs these Mondays in the summer when the Met is closed "Meredith Mondays" in honor of Meredith who works in the photography department and extends her employee Monday visit privileges to Jackie. Jackie and Meredith met in Florence, Italy - another story. Many thanks to Jackie for inviting me along and to Meredith for extending this perk to us. :)
It is beyond wonderful to have the run of the Museum without the crowds. We visited the new Islamic gallery, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, and the Rubens paintings.
The Schiaparelli and Prada exhibit was amazing, not only for the clothing exhibited but also for the work of the Met's digital photography department and curator for making the exhibit come to life. You have to see it. And, I see a bib in Hannah's future with an applique in the style of Prada as well as a skirt for Jackie inspired by the exhibit.
Hannah is a great little trooper. She takes in everything that she can see from her stroller. After two hours, a couple of diaper changes, and a couple of bench breaks for play and cuddling, she was ready to hit the road. We stopped for a nice lunch on the way home, chatted, laughed, and indulged in DESSERT AT LUNCH TIME :( .
A perfect day with two of my girls. Today, I will visit my additional girl and the little prince. :)
