What's that? You Say You Want More Pictures Of My Kids. Well. Alright.

Yesterday found us in Chicago at the Garfield Park Conservatory. I had never been there before, but Dave had recommended it and we want to get the kids together more often.

Finn and Philip

There are a number of huge colorful, sculptures on display in the garden by the artist Niki de Saint Phalle. The work is titled Niki In The Garden, and is meant to be played on and interacted with. Good times.

Finn and Ava

I'm confused. How many of those are yours? It seems like there are more and more kids appearing on your blog and unless you provide a scorecard it is too hard to keep them straight. I thought you had thw boys, both with red hair, am I mistaken?

Lulu - I was thinking the same thing as I posted these. You are correct, I have two boys, both of the redheads. The blonde little girl is Ava. A friends daughter. The curly-haired, blue eyed kid is Finnigan. The son of Dave at Bad Art that I link to.

I took the train to Chicago yesterday and saw you sitting in a lawn chair. It was about 8 a.m. Did you see me?

These are great pictures!! I'm glad this artist put these things in the park for everyone to TRULY enjoy- I love art that says "TOUCH ME" and when it is expected that you actually touch it and coexist with it- not just look at from a distance!!!

FYI: There's a very short mention of your beloved wife on my Cringe blog: http://iwasboycrazy.blogspot.com/

I need to get over there soon-- it's been a while.

I made it there for the Chihuly exhibit a few years ago-- very cool glass sculptures.
