Yesterday my family and I went to the J.P. Getty museum in Malibu. My husband and I went last year and thought that our kids would be old enough to appreciate it this year. It was really wonderful because I have been teaching my son all about Greek mythology so he went around the museum reading all the plaques and identifying many of the gods and goddesses such as Hermes and the Muses. As you can see, it wasn't crowded when we got there (we came as soon as they opened and I highly recommend doing this). The gardens are so peaceful to walk through and you truly feel as if you were transplanted to Herculaneum before the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in the amazing country home Getty patterned this museum after.
Gwenna insisted on wearing her "Skippy Jon Jones" cape she got for her birthday from Lori.
My mother in law had a crab stuffed avocado with goat cheese mouse. She also had one of their famous Bloody Mary drinks.
The rest of us had their fish and chips. It was really wonderful.
It was a really wonderful little day trip for all of us.
