Day Trippers – Part 1

Haven’t we heard more than enough dismal economic news this week?

We need a distraction . . .

How about another one of our group trips? 🙂

This time though, it’s not so much a shopping trip as a day of fun!

Wanna go to Boston with us? Hop on board! (Refreshments will be served!)

There’s an exhibit we’ve been dying to see at the Museum of Fine Arts. We thought we had plenty of time but, as you know, the summer days seem to fly. All of a sudden, it’s the last week of the show – we’d better stop dilly-dallying.


Lucky us! It’s an absolutely gorgeous day for a ride. There’s even a mini respite from the extreme heat of late.


Oh-oh! Road work!?! Hope we won’t be caught in traffic.


Whew! No problem. We’re making good time, after all!

This Boston landmark (story in a future post) tells us we’re getting very close to the city.


Yay! We’ve arrived at the museum! Stay together, now. Don’t want to lose anyone.

To begin, shall we swing by the “Art of the Ancient World” section and take a peek at the statue of Sir Beads and me?

Just a little joke. 😉 ( I have a million of ‘em!)


Seriously, this museum has everything I love – art, antiques, history, jewelry, and flowers!

Local garden clubs continually provide fresh flower designs – often utilizing cherished objets d’art from the museum’s permanent collection.

Isn’t this breathtaking? (Click photo twice to fully enlarge.)

Well, here I am rambling on and we haven’t even gotten to the main event of our day.

Please stay tuned for Part 2 of this series to view the beautiful exhibit that was the inspiration for this trip.

You don’t want to miss it!




Day Trippers – Part 1 — 4 Comments

  1. I am NOT even going to google what you went to see. I know this is gonna be good.

    Terry and I have been to the museum in Chicago several times. It was a place for us, then a place for all three of us, and now a place for all five of us. I am proud to know that I have been able to pass our love of the historical to our kids.

    Can’t wait to see what you went to see!

  2. OOOOOOhh, I can’t wait to see what’s next!!! The journey was so much fun—I’m sure the destination will be even more so!

    My 7th grader started school yesterday–where has the summer gone? At least it is in the low 90’s this week; last week we had high 90’s-100’s with heat indexes of up to 115!! Brutal! I am ready for fall.

  3. I will be gearing up for school here shortly so I needed this trip. I have 16 credit hours including calculas. I’m looking forward to cooler weather and a trip to the Lake of the Ozarks for our 24th wedding anniversary the 29th of this month.

  4. I think I’m your only visitor who goes backwards when reading your posts!

    I have to tell you I just totally cracked up at those statues with “Sir beads” and “Lady Crystal” written on them! You are such a hoot, Crystal! … I’m still having fits of little giggles!

    I’m guessing that Boston landmark is a really fun water tower???

    xoxo Paulette 🙂
