Stardate 62395.22 - MoMA Little Members

Saturday morning we went to MoMA to an event they call, "Little Members." We were permitted into the museum for 2.5 hours before they officially opened, so our children could look at works of art and complete some educational material. Loren found a couple of paintings she liked, including one by Paul Klee called Cat and Bird. But she was too young to complete the learning packet, so after looking around for 30 minutes she was ready to leave.

We then strolled up to Central Park, and tried to get Loren to go on the Merry-Go-Round. She had been on one before at the Bronx Zoo back in February, but these horses were high and the ride was fast so before it even started she wanted off. Oh, well--guess that $4 was just a donation.

We then went to one of the playgrounds where Loren demonstrated her climbing ability.

She also briefly enjoyed the swings.

We then stopped at Mon Petit Cafe for lunch, but the coffee and food were disappointing. After failing to get Loren to nap, we played in the apartment for a while and then took a brief trip out to the playground across the street. As I'm writing this we're back in the apartment, it is getting overcast, and we're trying to decide if we want to venture out for a little shoe shopping for Loren before we get too settled in to leave.
