Easter Eve

8 Apr

After our busy morning of soccer, it was off to run some errands and then home to dye eggs. This was a very serious art project.

Grandmom helped with color selection and decorating.

Miss H was very creative with the stickers on her eggs too. The eggs designated for Kerry were orange and had football, baseball and basketball stickers. While, Miss H put soccer balls stickers on her purple eggs. Me and Grandmom got the rest of the colors and had flowers and rocket ships 🙂

The Hirshhorn Museum has a new installation art piece that makes the outside of the circular museum the perfect movie screen. Since the weather was so nice, we decided to head down to the Mall to see the ‘movie’ and burn off more energy from Miss H. The exhibit starts at dark so we had some time to explore the sculputure garden. Mom taught Miss H to throw coins over her shoulder and make a wish. I thought this was skill was primarily for the Trevi Fountain but I guess it works for any fountain. Miss H loves her new over the shoulder coin tossing skill.

Also, she liked all the scupltures that were ‘houses.’

(If you look closely, you can see me taking the picture and Miss H running in the reflection)

Or, ones that had toes. After this picture, we noticed the sign about no touching the art so we ceased touching the art- even though, someone desperately wanted to touch all the art.

After a ride on the Mall carousel (no pictures), it was time for the movie to start.

We all thought it was cool. So, definitely take a trip to see it!
