DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum

This post has been in my draft box for more than week. Heck Oliver and I have been to DC and back but we had such a lovely morning that I still wanted to share it. We have been having some epic fall weather, you know the kind you wish you could bottle up and open in February? (although I must admit today is grey and rainy) So on such a gorgeous day we struck out to the DeCordova Sculpture and Museum to wander the grounds and explore. I actually have been meaning to bring Oliver here since we moved back but it just kept getting moved to the side. Well, silly me! We had a ball exploring the outdoor sculpture park and Oliver was engaged while I dorked out a bit explaining some of the various in and outs of the works, I guess he is used to me rambling when it comes to art!

One of the main reasons I wanted to get the sculpture park was to see the monumental installation Red, Yellow, and Blue by Orly Genger (seeing as it was only up for one more week we cut is a bit close).

all in all we had a really fun morning exploring and running around the DeCordova Museum, I highly recommend it with or without kiddos.
