My dad came into the city today for a (super!) belated Father’s Day adventure at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. When I read that they were having a Photography and the American Civil War exhibit, I knew I had to invite him. Unfortunately you aren’t allowed to take photos in any of the special exhibits at the Met, but with more than 200 photographs and paintings, it really was something exquisite. This particular exhibit ends on Sept. 2 (go see it if you’re in town this weekend … seriously!), but being there today just reminds me of how much more I need to take advantage of all the culture this city offers to me.
Admission tickets to the Met also include admission to The Cloisters for the same day, which is something Chris and I have been wanting to do for a while now. Today was rainy and dreary though, it wouldn’t have been a good day for that. Plus it took me and my dad a little over three hours to get through all the Civil War photos … girlfriend needs a rest after that!
This weekend is Labor Day weekend, and Chris and I don’t have a ton planned, which is nice because September is seriously rockin’! We might try to head to Smithtown one day to kayak, we’ve got Chris’ Super Secret 30th Birthday Trip and then we’ll head to Australia for Wedding No. 4 and our honeymoon in the Great Barrier Reef.
Now that’s leavin’ summer with a bang!
Bis bald, my friends!
