Spring Break is upon us and I know we are all scrambling for new things to do with the kids all week, unless of course you're lucky enough to be traveling somewhere exciting! Today I'm sharing our latest discovery for a fun Dallas outing.
Wednesday my mom took us on a little adventure. We had lunch at a great little seafood place, Dive, that I recommend you put on your foodie radar. Really fresh seafood and a variety of delicious salads. There are great kid options too, although mine didn't eat a thing because, well, they're almost three. Ha!
After lunch we headed down the road to the Meadow Museum of Art. This beautiful museum sits on the campus of Southern Methodist University and has a founding collection in Spanish art. Right now they have an amazing exhibit, Sorolla and America, that will be here until April 19th. Highly, highly recommend going to check it out. And the museum is definitely kid friendly. I kept C&H in their stroller and they loved looking at the paintings and telling me what was going on. It wasn't too crowded and the staff never gave us that wary 'oh goodie toddlers' look I get sometimes. We went just to see this specific exhibit so it took a little less than an hour to walk around, perfect amount of time. When we were finished and the kids started squirming, I picked up a few prints in the gift shop and we played outside on the steps a bit. It was a wonderful afternoon adventure and only a few miles from our house!
So even though it can seem intimidating, art? toddlers? ack!!, try a week day and a smaller museum and just go for it. Teach them early what going to an art museum looks like and they will most likely return again and again as they grow up!
