At The High


We pushed hard this weekend. Saturday they no-napped us. Stinkers. We can usually count on Saturday being a good nap day. Not the case.

Sunday, we had a church wide brunch followed by a quick trip home to feed the babe, and then a new adventure at the High Museum. (Yes, amanda, I’m saying “yes” way more!) So, it was a no-nap day again.

In addition to learning about so many of the family attractions Atlanta has to offer, the girls found the kid exhibit in the museum.

They played with the puppets that were inspired by paintings displayed in the museum.

But, about half way through our trip, on of them did it shoeless. Yes, my child explored the High Museum shoeless. (Most of their “exploring was in the kid area, thank goodness.)

I didn’t realize they had changed into new shoes before heading out, and they quickly had blisters on their feet. #2 was the first to ditch them. She had rubbed the skin raw on her feet.

Fancy art and barefoot at the High museum.

Fortunately, it was near closing time and wasn’t very crowded at all. It definitely wasn’t a parenting win, so we finished our visit. When one of the workers asked us to put her shoes on, she was carried the rest of the way and we left. You do what you have to do, right?

I’m linking up here.  Go and visit their Wordful and Wordless Wednesdays.
