Fall Bucket List: Family Day Trip

Russ took the day off work on Friday. The girls and I had co-op in the morning but the whole family was plan free the rest of the day. Such an awesome rare occasion. Nowhere to go and nothing we had to do. It gave us the perfect opportunity to get out of town. 

Yup, that’s us. We are a classy bunch if I may say so myself. I don’t think it takes long to tell who takes after who by looking at this picture. If the hubby wants to “sabotage” my picture with his goofy expressions I’ll just post it anyways :). 
We quickly decided to head down to Arkansas. A few months ago we visited an art gallery down there and we decided a second trip would be nice.
After a busy morning and a card drive we decided to stop at a park and let the girls play for a bit. Wise choice on our part if I may say so. 

Next stop, Crystal Bridges. I don’t think this place could ever get old. It is so beautiful there.

We didn’t spend as much time in the main gallery this time. We quickly walked through and found the kids area.
Interactive art

Marissa worked on a scratch art project while Emily played with blocks. 

Then we headed outside. I love that there is so much to do AND explore there. 

It was perfect weather for a walk on the trails. We had wanted to do that last time but it was SO hot in July!
The fall air smelled amazing, crunching leaves underfoot and raining down on us.

It was great.

We made our way back to check out the new pop art exhibit.
Yarn art.
This pieces was HUGE and done out of fabric.

Art in motion.
This telescope was constructed of all of the little pieces punched out of the wall. 

Interactive art exhibit. Using bells to hit a balloon with,

Another great trip to what is becoming one of my favorite places.
Plus a couple more things crossed off of our list. Who knows we might just get our list completed after all.
How was your weekend?
