Boys and Girl Day Out

Yesterday the wife wasnt feeling too hot, so I took the kids out for the morning. We first stopped by the library to pick up a pass, then headed off to bread and more for munchins (the new englandhttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif equivalent of donut holes back home) but they didnt have any so we went to the ubiquitious donut place. We headed into downtownhttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif Providence, saw the cranes at G-Tech, The Westin and condos at Waterplace before crossing at Chapel Street, went past FBC then turned right onto Benefit St. Luckily, we found a place to park, and had to walk only a couple of blocks to the RISD Museum.

I wanted them to see the Hurd display before it past. They were the makers of Goodnight Moon, Runaway Bunny, My World, you know. The display was neat. It was interesting to see how they changed illustrations for children's books. It was also neat to see the process of their drawings. They had a shelf of the 50+ books they wrote, most I had never heard of or seen. One a collaboration with Gertrude Stein, and a great book titled Christmas Eve, I will read this one for the Xmas eve service this year.

When we got home the kids wanted to paint. Here is the Friday Photo:
