Saturday morning we headed out early and took the train to NYC. We had a wonderful trip planned for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We took a cab to the museum from Grand Central so that the kids would not be tired already by the time we got there. Mitchell was very taken with the big buildings he could see from his seat in the taxi.
We spent lots of time in the Egyptian exhibit. The kids loved our made up stories about the hieroglyphs and what we thought that they meant.
William, was the most adorable blue hippo....wish he could come to our house. He would have a good home here. Maybe i can get one for myself.
all of the kids were doing their best mummy pose...they are a funny bunch.
One of the things i love about a great museum is the guards. There are always one that are scary and then there are the ones that make you laugh or teach you something or show you something you would never have noticed. This guard in the background spent all his time acting like a mummy and making the kids laugh.
