Our next stop on our Saturday adventure was the IMA. They were supposed to have a craft available at 12 and we arrived at 1pm. When I went to the front desk to ask where to go they informed me that the craft time would not be starting until 2pm. At that point I wanted to just walk out and go home but stayed because I just paid $5 for parking. Next time I will go with my instinct.
We walked around a couple of exhibits to look at painting and artifacts. Then we visited the small children's area to make some art. Nolan decided to tape his art to the table for future visitors to see.
Then Nolan wanted to ride the elevator, so we did. Isaac liked looking at the modern art and wanted me to take pictures of him with it.
In this picture is where things took a turn. You can see Isaac looking at Nolan, who just sat on a piece of art. The security people told him not to and then had to call it in. I guessing they had to make sure the art wasn't damaged, but it looked like a tower of blocks and also looked impossible to damage by leaning on it. Nolan is a lot like me and got upset (defensive) when he got called out. We then tried to see more exhibits but Nolan was too upset. He started hitting me, which led to me dragging him out of the exhibit and trying to talk to him. That didn't help so I then had to drag him from the 4th floor to the parking garage.
I then drove to 100 Acres and talked with Nolan some more to assure him that I wasn't mad/still loved him but he needs to listen when I tell him not to do something like touch the art.
As we were leaving we saw a chicken under the bridge, in the city. Isaac wanted me to rescue it. Not happening. I'm not running around 38th street after a rooster that looks to be doing ok. We decided this is a wild chicken.

Since David's out of town I needed to find some fun activities to fill up our Saturday. I found a Family Jam time that happens every Saturday morning. It was so much fun, for me at least. Nolan sat on my lap most of the time and just took it all in. Isaac loved banging on the drum. In between songs the teacher had movement sessions. Nolan seemed to like the movement session and Isaac just wanted to bang on the drum.
