We visited Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. It's free (thanks to Walmart!).
Here are some of our photos and some of my memories.
Millions of wildflowers lined the entire entrance way into the park. Literally millions. Taking my breath away. I so want to recreate this in my backyard. Beauty. My iphone camera fails the capture the true beauty of it.
And beautiful art inside -- by famous americans - Norman Rockwell, Thomas Hart Benton, Georgia O'Keefe, Andy Warhol, and many more. My favorite are the landscapes of the American countryside. And the girls had lots of fun playing 'bingo' by finding all the works of on their cards.
It was also family fun day. Which included -- painting and drawing in the garden. Might be one of my favorite parts of the day.
And hula hooping. Can't believe I still knew how to do it. Glad I decided to join the fun.
And Mike insisted we all make and wear sunglasses for the day. Sarah's had a cool lanyard strap you can't see well.
And sailing sailboats in the pond.
We will definitely go back sometime. It was a lot of fun and a great way to kick off the summer! And today begins swim team practice, 2 hours a day for 4 days a week! Check out the 8am temperature this morning --
-- it was cold to get in the water, but they did it!
