Art is everywhere

This afternoon, Misty and I took the girls on an art-filled outing. It wasn't intended as such -- it just turned out that way.

We had lunch at Bottletree, which, if you don't know, is decorated with an eclectic assortment of artwork. I finally tried the "Viking Funeral" -- a plate of sweet potato fries smothered with their award-winning chili and pimento cheese (which Misty says is the best ever). It easily lived up to the praise I'd heard from others.

After lunch, we had some time to kill, so we headed over to the Birmingham Museum of Art for a bit. The girls breezed through the rooms and weren't too interested in most of the art on display. However, they were quick to spot a kids drawing area where they could post their sketches on a bulletin board. That was a big hit.

Finally, we went to the movies where we saw "Tangled," in which Rapunzel painted scenes from her dreams on the walls of the tower in which she was imprisoned. It was a beautiful movie, but it didn't quite resonate with me like other recent Disney animated films. Misty and the girls loved it, though.
