A couple of weekends ago Tadj and I took the kids to the Detroit Institute of Arts. We had such fond memories of our dating days and walking around enjoying the beautiful artwork. We thought it time to expose the kids to some art culture. Luckily, they sent us a free family pass to try it out. Things sure have changed. Art museums are NOT for kids... though the DIA advertised kid friendly areas. It was not so. They had one room where the kids made Kalimbas out of popsicle sticks and wood scraps. That was fun. That lasted 30 minutes. Then for the next two hours all we heard was "I'm hungry", "I don't want to walk anymore", "when can we go home", and OF COURSE from the museum security "she can't sit on that!" , "don't touch that", "don't touch that", "don't TOUCH THAT!!!". We won't be going back for like 8 more years. But we got a couple cute pictures.
