A Visit to the Museum of Fine Arts

Museum of Fine Arts

When school vacation is in full swing, entertaining the little ones becomes a full-time job. After a week long trip to visit family, and a handful of play dates and park visits, we were still left with a rainy afternoon to spend. It has already been a long winter here in Boston and we wanted to explore somewhere new. We were looking for an indoor activity besides visiting a children’s museum, aquarium, indoor play area or the library.

We decided for the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

I had been wanting to visit the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston to view “Matisse in the Studio” – an exhibit of Henri Matisse’s personal objects that inspired the artist along with some of his major related works. Most of these were publicly exhibited outside of France for the first time, and I definitely didn’t want to miss this opportunity to see them for myself. A visit to the MFA with the girls had been pending for quite some time and I thought this was the perfect chance to create a meaningful cultural experience and visit the exhibit together.

The Easter Friday List

eastereggDIY

It is Good Friday today. Are you ready for Easter? I am, especially the long week end part. We will do some crafts over the week end, hoping for an egg hunt outside {but most probably will have to do it in the house if the weather stays} and will have a brunch with friends on Monday at our place…

What are your plans?

Tomorrow I will share how we dyed our eggs. I posted a picture on Instagram and got so many questions. I thought I will share and you can have fun over the week end… stay tuned.

Athens with kids

Athens with kids

We stayed in Athens in December/ January. For New Year and my birthday. I really planned to write something about it much earlier…

But as you can enjoy this beautiful city at any time of the year, here we are!

Athens is full of friendly, warm and openhearted people. There is plenty to see and just wandering through the streets is wonderful!

A few facts before I will share what we did:We stayed for 10 days and rented an apartment. The kids were 15 months, 4, 6 and 9. We had our travel buggy as well as a baby carrier with us. And I can tell you that wandering through the streets of Athens is truly inspiring and beautiful – it is also rather sporty with a buggy. Even a small and light one. Streets are narrow and old. Up and down.

Thank you!

Wow!
What a start into the New Year. Boom! I like a good start. Fresh, inspirational, powerful and full of faith.

After I missed all the shows last summer because of our road trip and ‘only’ did CIFF KIDS last winter because of the baby, I decided to go 300% this season.

Starting with Pitti Bimbo in Florence {my first time}, 5 days later I was off to Playtime Paris and after a very quick pit stop at home I went to CIFF KIDS.

Intense yet very awesome. Meeting old friends, connecting with new. Catching up with brands, shop owners, agencies and, of course, other bloggers and journalists. Many very interesting conversations happened and for the first time I realized that Paul & Paula is really old. Haha! We are turning 7 this year in May.

Skandika – outdoor company

I got my first backpack when I first 14. I went to France for 3 weeks on a language trip {and learned more English than French but that’s another story}. I used it for many years to come.

Did a little break and tried the ‘grown up’ version with suitcases and cool week ender bags. When we added kids to our {travel} life I went back to the backpack thing. It is just so practical. As practical as having a stroller that can be pushed with one hand only for example.

Luggage on your back means: 2 free hands. And I think I do not need to explain further what two free hands mean when you have kids…
