Spent the weekend with my mom - did I already mention that? I just love her...she's my fave. We are REALLY into exploring art museums...so I clearly had to take her to the Corning Glass Museum. AMAZING. I so totally HIGHLY HUGELY recommend experiencing that place - phenomenal collection. And surprisingly - there was a ton of kiddo-s there...with lots of activities geared for them (it's always fun to watch kids at museums when they are totally engaged in what they are doing, isn't it?)
They also have a superior gift shop - with gigantic displays of locally blown glass pumpkins and apples for the fall. My mom and I went nuts (though I can't believe I didn't take any pictures of that!!!) I bought a brilliant lil pumpkin friend...a momento of the day.
Have you ever watched glass being blown? It is such a magical moment. We just dig it. We "ooooo" and "ahhhhh" and squeal and clap (we have a hard time restraining ourselves sometimes when we get excited.) I bet someday we dabble in glass art...I like the idea of working with stained glass.
