Adventure #1 for 2010


I posted a blog a long time ago (in 2008?) about Larry Miller's son Greg who promised his children 100 ADVENTURES during the year. Remember that? I said I thought it was a great idea, so we embarked on our first adventure. As I recall it was a play at the Covey Center in Provo. Remember that???? --And remember the eye-guy who left a comment on my blog????? "YIKES"!!!!!!! LOL

In total during this past year, I think we logged less than half a dozen adventures for the entire year. (Sigh) Oh, well. It's now a NEW YEAR!

Here's a nearby quick adventure for anyone who might be interested:

The Woodbury Art Museum is at the University Mall, on the 2nd floor between Nordstroms and The Gap. It's open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and it's free.

The above photo is of a painting in their permanent exhibit. This picture is part of the Fairy Tales collection and depicts a scene from Sleeping Beauty. Other art in the collection includes pictures from Lord of the Rings and Phantom of the Opera. (I think these qualify as kid-friendly art.)

Also currently on exhibit are several Sorensen Wax Dolls. There are a dozen different "Father Christmas" dolls on display until mid-January. These dolls are carved wax and are ornately clothed. Below is a photo of "Father Frost," one of the wax dolls.




What do you think? Does it look like it might be worth a visit to the Woodbury Art Museum? (Or maybe even more than one!)

Then, afterwards there might be a stop at the ice cream place?! (Two adventures for the price of one....)
