Chapter 53- Discovery World’s Lawn, Milwaukee Art Museum, and Wauwatosa Public Library

For the second time in my life, I was early for something.  We showed up to the Milwaukee Art Museum 30 minutes before they opened, so we parked and walked over to Discovery World’s lawn to hang out.

We found our way to the dock and climbed on the wooded steps and talked about how deep Lake Michigan is and how many fish live in the water.

At 10am, we headed to the museum, stood against some white walls for photos, then headed to the Play Date With Art.

First, we made patchwork “quilts”, and talked with our friend Jim (who works at the entrance ushering people into the museum and shares his general light and energy with folks).

Then we sat on colored squares and sang songs, played instruments, and played games.  Afterwards, my brother, who works a block away from the museum, met us in the cafe for a quick lunch.

Then, because everyone was being super awesome and naps don’t happen every day these days, we headed to the Wauwatosa Public Library to check out some books.  We’re doing the 1001 books before kindergarten challenge, so expect to see a lot of library adventures this summer!

Have a great weekend, all!

    1001 books; that’s a fun and ambitious challenge.

      Thanks Kathy! Yeah, it’s a pretty lofty goal. I doubt we’ll make it by junior kindergarten this fall, but definitely by senior kindergarten next year!
