When thinking about new years resolutions and things I want to be part of 2013 I noticed that I kept coming back to the theme of simply getting out, doing something different. I believe that while routines are good, I kind of got too comfortable when we were in Chicago. We went to the same type of activities, hung out at the same type of haunts. Not that there is anything wrong with having a favorite neighborhood bar and grill or brunch spot... but I want to make sure that we take advantage of being in a totally new city and get out there, try new things, do things I would normally overlook.
The recent Ann Hamilton installation at the Armory was perfect for a family afternoon outing. And an interactive art exhibit definitely falls into the category of something I normally wouldn't put on the calendar.
We had fun. And of course going on a Saturday made for crowds. There was no way I was waiting for a spot to open under the big white curtain-thing... So we enjoyed taking it in while on a swing and then let the next person in line enjoy their moment.
I am sure we are going to have our favorites figured out pretty quickly but I hope that we find something different to sprinkle in every once in a while for family outings.
