We took a special trip to the Getty Museum this past Labor Day weekend. Believe it or not, I have never been. I’ve been wanting to go ever since I can remember. We decided to take Ellie because we’ve been talking about art recently. I’ve introduced Van Gogh and his art to Ellie during our lunch and tea times (if you follow me on instagram, you’ve seen the Van Gogh doll and wool felt paintings). Ellie was very excited to see a “real” painting by Van Gogh. She did incredibly well for a 3-year-old in a very large museum. It was a really special day. Except for the time when I got in trouble for standing too close to the Van Gogh we came to see. I had to add the only photo Jeff captured of Ellie and I next to the Irises, as I’m apologizing  to the Getty staff member who’s telling me I’m “too close”. Oops!! I guess we were too excited.

Besides Mama getting in trouble, we had a beautiful time. Ellie enjoyed it immensely and wants to learn more about art and artists, which makes my heart soar.

I desperately want to catch you all up on the day-to-day around here. The summer is almost over and I have so much to tell. I’m really hoping I can find more time to document our days here again.

Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend!!
