A Great Day....At The Museum

Hello everyone

Good evening all !!!!!!!! How is everyone ? I hope you are all well. I have such news for you today. I have to say that I had a nice day today and I will tell you why.

Of course today was another day at work for me and it was extremely warm today in Atlanta, Georgia. Later in the evening my mom and dad and I went to the High Museum of Art. My niece's stayed home with their mother.

I have to say that the High Museum of Art in Atlanta was wonderful. It was our first time going to the museum. I liked going to see all of the painting's and exhibit's there.

My favorite part was the Claude Monet exhibit where we got to see his famous "Water Lilies" which I thought was amazing. Did you know that he used layer upon layer of paint and then he scraped away the paint to get the desired effect he wanted in his paintings. His painting's are amazing. I also got to see some of the painting's from the Louvre which was nice.

At the museum they had some furniture on exhibit. They also had what they call contemporary art which consisted of some plates of glass stacked together and some piles of wood propped together in a room at the museum. I didn't get the contemporary art.

We had a great time and before we left we did pick up some souvenir's from the museum gift shop on the way out. Here is the link ----> . After the museum we went to a place we like called "Just Loaf'N" which is a Cajun New Orleans restaurant we like in Atlanta. The food is always good and we like to eat there from time to time.

So my dear world how was your day today ? I hope that all is well in your neck of the woods. I do hope that you all have a really nice weekend.
