The De Young Museum is that rather odd looking brown structure in the distance.
We got to see so many famous paintings, like Whistler's Mother, The Fifer, and my favorites...
It was pretty endearing that Mario was in awe at seeing the artist's signatures on the paintings. It is pretty amazing to see Monet's signature and date on a painting made a hundred years ago. And to see the differences in brush stroke and technique from artist to artist - that kind of thing makes me giddy!
After, we had a late lunch at the museum restaurant where they had these funny little parasols suspended in the outdoor dining tent.
I suppose it was to go along with the theme of Paris during the Impressionist period. The lunch was French themed as well. They had Asparagus Salad and Brioche and various wines. A pretty nice spread for a museum cafe.
And, of course we wandered around the park and museum grounds. A lot of it really did remind me of Paris.
Now it's back to the grind. Monday, blah - but at least it's Moustache cookie Monday be ready for moustache cookie madness in upcoming photos!
