One wonderful thing that I adore about the United States is their Free Museum Day which usually is scheduled on Thursdays (here in Houston anyway). Truly it satisfies an individual’s thirst for knowledge without having to spend an arm and a leg for it. And it makes me smile to see kids who are constantly hungry for education, to learn something new. Not everyone can appreciate Art—museums, musicals, ballets, operas etc.,and you can’t force someone to learn to like Art, it just doesn’t work that way. I’d like to think I’m one of those blessed few who can genuinely enjoy a whole afternoon stroll at the museum.
They say “An Idle Mind is the Devil’s Workshop”, that probably is VERY true and I don’t have any intentions of just sitting here and waiting to find out. This was my initiative to take the kids (my siblings) out and explore the museum district. Their minds are not necessarily “idle” but I don’t think the constant use of iphones, ipads, the television and the computer is good for the mind either. Sure, there’s Google–you can just sit there and learn a lot of stuff from the internet and there are a bunch of educational reads and games online but the actual experience of watching a play and going through the walls of a museum is a whole new experience in itself—it is just PRICELESS.
And here we are—Houston’s very own Children’s Museum
The kids’ most favorite thing at the museum and did I mention that it’s also the most crowded section next to the Kidopolis.
KIDDIE TENDENCY #1: Acting giddy inside the museum
Angelie’s creation survived the test of Sturdiness
KIDDIE TENDENCY # 2: Expressing my creative side through LEGO
(Note to Via Antonio: naiisip kong nakawin ang LEGO para sa BrickItOn mo, haha)
You’d be surprised how a $1.00 fruit bar can make you feel like a millionaire on a hot scorching day.
KIDDIE TENDENCY #3: Eating Ice Cream and sitting at the side of the walkway
After the free trip to the Children’s Museum, we walked to the Miller Outdoor Theatre for Theater Under the Stars’ Production of Chorus Line and failed to get free tickets. Ugh, I don’t want to stay on the hill.
Waiting until they announce the release of the unoccupied seats. Yes, we scored half a row for all of us.
TUT’s CHORUS LINE—Woohoo, here we go!
One of the strongest images A Chorus Line left with me—truly impacting
WHAT I WORE:

Electrifying Blue pop-outs
a stroll in the garden before heading out to Miller Theatre
Love how these cinch belts create the image that I have a very small waist
I’m not a sneaker person but I had to get one of these to feel the difference of the wedge-factor. Haha.
