My mom, the sprout, and I went back to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday. I was off for Rosh Hashanah, and the museum was closed. So Meredith took us around for another couple of hours to see some more things and get some fun photos of H.

They were tending to a lot of things when we there, so we still didn’t make it to William the hippo. And the Arms and Armor room, always one of my favorites, was also tricky to get to. But we saw lots of sculpture, European paintings, and I made lots of docents and guards nervous when I spread H out on the floor to take some photos. I mean, how many kids get pictures of themselves in the empty Met? I’m pretty sure I was horribly embarrassing, and my mother told me my mission for the day was clear–H photos. I swear we looked at art, and that’s why we went, but I’m also all about preserving cool memories. So here are my favorite photos from the whole day. The sprout photos are towards the bottom, I really did appreciate the art.

As close as we could get to the Arms and Armor.

But still very cool from above.

Great piece.

Sculpture on its day off.

Meredith leading the way through European paintings with my mom and H. Think I made that docent nervous in this section.

Proud Nana.


Good a place as any to lay about (this is why the docent may have been nervous).

My treasure with the Met’s treasure.

More proud Nana.

I mean, seriously. I just had to take the opportunity.

Appreciating the sculpture garden.


I got some closeups on the floor with her in the sculpture garden, too. This is about when I think I got pretty embarrassing.

And with all that art, really she was much more interested in the quilt and her Wubbanub.

So much fun. I hope she thinks all these adventures are cool when she looks back at the photos someday.
