As we were getting ready, she said she wanted to go to see ancient Egypt because she is studying it in school. (I also studied ancient Egypt in 6th grade.)
I told her Egypt is at the Met, not Natural History.
She said, "Oh yeah! Let's go there!"
I said, "You want to go to the Met? Really?" (Daya doesn't like the Met. She thinks it is boring.)
She said, "Yes!"
Well, I'm not going to argue! I LOVE the Met!
So that's where we went.
Daya is into Pokemon Go, and she says Manhattan is the best place to get whatever it is they get.
I thought the Apple store at 5th ave would be a good spot, and it was. Plus it was on the way.
Looking straight up from the Apple Store elevator
We went to Egypt.
Daya with Anubis
The museum was setting up for some fancy event in the Temple of Dendur so it was roped off.
Daya had some change and she wanted to make wishes for her, me, and Rob.
Then, since Daya is into the musical Hamilton, she wanted to go to the American Wing to look for the portrait of Alexander Hamilton. She even went to the Met's site on her phone to look up the exact gallery.
One thing Daya LOVES is the glass elevator in the American Wing.
I took the BEST pic of her. She didn't pose intentionally, it just happened she was looking at something and I wanted to take a pic from the other side of the elevator, and there is a sculpture that reflects through the glass.
More pics from the American Wing.
I love this cat in the sculpture court.
Central Park covered in snow! ...and someone's dog.
We found the Hamilton portrait.
From Colonial America Daya was Museumed Out, but I needed the growly lion pic we always take if I can mamage to get her to the Met. The lion is in Greece.
But on the way to Greece I wanted to take a detour because I like this fountain.
When we got to Greece, we stopped in the Greek Sculpture Court because it is one of my favorite places ever.
We made more wishes for her, me, and Rob in the fountain.
And then we went to go roar at the lion.
