Musee Rodin


i just love the museums
in paris.
a few days ago hannah
and griff and i 
visited the 
rodin museum.
griffin wanted nothing
to do with walking around
inside the museum..
so we spent most of our
time walking around 
the gardens outside.


the thinker


the three shades



the gates of hell


there was spooky music
coming from the trees
near the gates of hell


monument to the 
burghers of calais.


hannah and griff
and 
auguste rodin


any day spent at a 
museum in paris
is a great day in my book.

yesterday
was the first sunday of the month.
which means free museum admission
in paris.
steve had not yet visited 
musee d'orsay
so we went.
now, usually
i'm cursing the stroller..
in my elevator,
on the metro
but
 a stroller gets you 
to the front of the line
at the museums.
and free admission sundays
are packed.


it was a great weekend.
will came home from
his field trip to brittany
friday night.
saturday morning 
stephen left for crete
with his senior class.

the next few weeks are crazy busy.
sports banquets
the prom
going away parties
graduation
and school ending.

looking forward to summer!

  3. This is the third time I've tried to comment here--my iPad and phone can't do the word verification for some reason.

    The Rodin museum is one of my favorite places in all of Paris. In 1997 I fell in love with his "Hand of God" sculpture and in the succeeding 16 years I've tried to find a replica for my home, to no avail. If you go back again, snap a picture of it for me, would you?
