Sundays in My City – Art of the Brick

Unknown Mami
With Tara working this summer and her active social life with friends, it has been difficult for us to find time for adventures. A couple weeks ago, we both had the same day off and we wanted to do something together. Two things came to mind; The Adventure Aquarium in Camden (I bought an Annual pass in June, and Tara has never been) or The Franklin Institute in Philly, specifically to see The Art of the Brick exhibit. 

We choose The Art of the Brick, the amazing Lego creations of Nathan Sawaya.
We ventured out on a beautiful, not too hot day. Arriving in Philly, my plan was immediately altered when the parking at the FI, and we had to find alternate parking. (I am one of those people who fears parallel parking, and will pay just about anything in a parking lot/garage because of that limitation!) We found parking about 4 blocks away. (I love the graphics available in Snapchat!)

Here is my Flickr album with all the photos I took., I will share just a few.

Most were shot with my Galaxy S4, it was just easier than using the DSLR, There were many children and I needed to be quick with the shutter.!

Dum Dum, I want Gum Gum (reference to Night at the Museum)
Of course there had to be a Liberty Bell in Philly!
Creepy but cool!

This display recreated elements from several paintings around the room.


Tara and I both really enjoyed our day. We also took in the Ghengis Khan exhibit, I will save that for another day. 
Stop by and visit Claudya and Sundays in my City.
