Nelson Art Gallery and Plaza Lights

Tracy and Matt headed back to Colorado this morning; Sam had a flight out of Denver early Saturday morning back to school. Matteo and AJ stayed with Nana and I for another day or so in Kansas with the Siscos. We spent today at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri. Like most great museum's, they have a "scavenger hunt" guide for kids which Matteo and AJ completed, and then some. AJ became fascinated by the fact that we didn't know who made some works or even who was pictured in some works. And there are plenty of those at the Nelson. We followed up with a treat on the Country Club Plaza with which to enjoy the lights that were just turned on Thanksgiving night. Then dinner and a movie at Vickie and Rob's, The Santa Clause. All the photos are here.

We got the scoop from a docent on this Caravaggio painting of
"John the Baptist (John in the Wilderness)." You would NEVER get
done learning about all the pieces in this one museum alone.
