Rainy Days and Thursdays

Beth was off yesterday. It was a rainy day. A nice rainy day. I needed to get out of the house. The zoo was our initial destination, but the rain didn't look like it was going to let up, so we took the boys to the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts. Anders was keen on seeing the Egyptian mummy sarcophagus. He was also delighted to see some swords and medieval armor. It was hard for Nils to look and not touch. So we weren't there for too long, but saw a nice sampling of displays.

We still went to the zoo--I wanted Beth to see the butterfly exhibit before it's gone in a couple weeks. It was kind of nice because we were able to find parking close and there weren't any lines. We only hit the butterfly tent and the primate house, but it was just enough.

I love that MIA is free -- perfect for visits with young kids with short attention spans and an irresistable urge to touch!

Sometime you must hunt down the veiled lady sculpture. It's pretty cool.
