Last Thursday...


Last Thursday my wonderful husband planned a daytime date for us to the J. Paul Getty Museum. We do date nights often, but a daytime date?... this was a whole new concept. I didn't realize that it would be much different then our usual dates of dinner and shopping....but lo...it was! Being together alone, during the day, for an extended period of time was just what the Dr. ordered. I strongly recommend this to any married couple with small adorable life-sucking children (kidding). For those of you who dont know, the Getty Museum is in LA, therfore we spent the majority of our day in traffic, which if you continually tell yourself to relax and enjoy eachothers sweet company can be managable....even enjoyable. We had lots of time to talk over our desires, goals and exciting possiblities for the future of our family. The Getty was really cool too! Amazing paintings, sweet photography and beautiful gardens and cityscapes (which were my favorite), and a not so great tuna salad sandwich and coffee for way too much money. Our favorite exhibit was called 'Captured Emotions', Baroque paintings from the 1500-1700's. Most of the paintings were scences imagined from biblical stories. Above is a painting of the Return of the Prodigal Son from this exhibit.

Here are some photos of our day




The girls were very well cared for SeraBella (follow link for pics of thier day) and later Bri and later Rachel! They were all my hero's and the girls were thrilled to spend the day with them.
