Saturday - Bechtler and Chima

Labor Day weekend Stephanie came home for the weekend and we all went to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and later to Chima for some dinner.  We took the train downtown and waded through the Festival of India that was happening in the street to get to the museum.  I wish we had time to partake in the festival food and events, but we had other plans.

The Bechtler was great, besides the Niki de Saint Phalle exhibit, there are some Picassos, some Miros, a Warhol, and a Degas among many, many others.  Please make the trip if you can.  It's pretty amazing.

Meredith left the seat next to me after I annoyed her.
All part of my evil plan to get a better photo.

And then she realized my plan...
