Houston: Discovery Green + Menil Collection

When June rolled around and M's semester was over, we headed north to Houston for a few weeks with the family and a change of scenery. To keep us in a nice routine, we planned daily activities out of the house. Our first destination was Discovery Green. After messing around with the parking for an inordinate amount of time, we had a walk around. Little N absolutely loved the water feature, as expected, and we wrapped things up with snow cones on the grass. A perfect little summer excursion.

Another muggy day, we headed out early for a visit to the Menil Collection. The museum was small enough that it was just right for exploring with the boys. The guards were a little overbearing but we hear that's a common complaint. Other than the main building we also walked over to see a lighting installation. The time-worthyness of that one is still up for debate. We ended with a much anticipated visit to Trader Joe's and enjoyed our treats all the way home.
