Celebrating 100 Years of the BMA! With a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old!

In an attempt to redeem my memories of our lovely day at the Baltimore Museum of Art on 1/14/15 (after which we suffered through the Stomach Bug of Doom), I present to you:

Our Day at the Museum!

Recently, the BMA reopened the original entrance and this was the first time I’ve ever been through those doors.  It was fun to walk up the colorful steps.  Ellie still talks about them!

Once inside, we made sure to use our “museum walk” poses, protecting precious museum artifacts and looking pretty cute in the process!

We then went into the modern wing of the museum, which has several pieces you are allowed to touch, included a fun doorway full of “Water” (super long strings of beads).

We had fun building our own sculptures, using blocks filled with every-day objects.

On our way out, I came across a circle painted on the sidewalk, instructing me to stand there to take a selfie with the museum.  So I, being a rule-follower, took the picture! 🙂

After our time in the museum, we walked down into Wyman Park Dell (the park just across the street from the BMA) and ate lunch and enjoyed a bit of sunshine on an other wise cold and windy day.  We also had fun running in the leaves, a rather autumn-ish thing to be doing in January.
