Detroit institute of Arts

So I had never been to the DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts)before and so yesterady I decided to take the kids and head down for a day of culture:) I love the free passes you can check out at the library. Yay for whoever thought of that idea!:) I wasn't sure how Logan and Tanner would do in an art museum. We've never really done a real museum. We mostly stick to hands-on museums, but they did great! The museum had these "eye spy" plaques around so Logan and Tanner liked looking at the clue picture and then trying to find the art piece in that room. It was kind of like a treasure hunt. We had a fun adventure heading to Detroit for the day and looking at all the art work. I was excited to see some pieces by Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, etc. I also really felt like I learned alot about the different syles and periods of art. Then, at the end of the day...after feeling pretty good about our field trip and all that I had explained to the boys, I asked them what their favorite part was. They both replied that they liked the chocolate milk, cookies, and chips from the food court the best:) hehe...typical boys
