we’re seeing lines

lacma-onlacmalacma-onlacma-onlacma-onlacma-onlacmalacma-onLast week we were pretty swamped (in a good way), so we just needed an afternoon of fun and exploring together as a family. Therefore, Sunday afternoon, we headed out to the LACMA. Ben and I hadn’t been in several years and we wanted to check out some of the outdoor installations because we knew the girls would have a lot of fun with them.

There were two main ones we wanted to take the girls to see, which were Urban Lights and Penetrabile. They had so much fun running through all the lampposts and they especially loved the yellow plastic tubes! They kept walking and running through it, pulling it, hugging it, and even Glow tried licking it (oh boy!). Obviously, they really loved it. It’s such a simple piece, but so striking and so fun! I asked Ben if we could make our own version of it for our backyard because the girls would for sure love that!

We also checked out some of the Greek and Roman Art they because we studied that in our ancient times history lessons. We will definitely be back to explore because there is just so much to see; there was no way we were going to cover it all in one afternoon. Next on our list will for sure be the Levitated Mass!

My two big girls are looking “stylish” in their denim skinnies and boots. True’s been really cute of late when it comes to dressing. She’ll say, “Mom, I like fashion. Does this look stylish?” Also, I’m wearing the Old Navy Rockstar Skinnies in coated wash, which I wore here and here, but I liked the fit so much, I ended up getting it in the coated wash too (BTW- my printed denim skinnies and my coated wash never did that odd weird stretch out too much thing as the day wore on, but reviews say go up a size, and I say don’t, just get your normal size). I like that Old Navy carries petite sizes (I’m a shorty) and it saves me the trouble of having to hem my jeans. I actually got the coated wash, showed Ben, but wasn’t sure I could pull it off, so I returned it. That night Ben says, “I really liked those and I think you could totally do it!” So I went back to the store the next day to get them back (thankfully, they didn’t sell yet). Then, I tried on a pair of the mid-rise rockstar skinnies and fell in love with those too and got a pair. After having 4 kids, that mid-rise helps my soft tummy area stay inside where it’s supposed to be, if you know what I mean! Gosh, I’ve been consistently working out 4-5 days a week for almost 4 years now and that mom belly on me just never goes away. I guess it’s my souvenir from that journey. I’m thankful for mid-rise/high-waisted bottoms because it helps hide it, and I’m especially thankful for Spanx! Anyone else with me on that?!

    Love that you guys do so much with your girls (and look so stylish doing it)! I’d feel overwhelmed and just hide in my house all day. Btw, we were just at LACMA (but we live in NYC and surrounds).

    You all look so lovely! We love going to LACMA, we are there all the time! if you go again I would love to meet you there! Did you go to their children space? They have the nicest set up there with great quality art supplies and they are very welcoming.

    Those look like such fun displays! I can’t wait to take my daughter to a (children’s) museum when we’re home in Washington for Christmas. There aren’t many things like that where we are. I hope this isn’t rude at all, but have you ever heard of diastasis recti? I’ve only had one baby, but I definitely had it after my pregnancy. It’s where your abdominal muscles separate a bit and no matter what, you can’t get your tummy back in unless you do the right exercises (which ironically means no crunches until it’s healed because they make it worse). Unfortunately I have to wait to try to heal it more because I’m pregnant now! But between our next babies I hope to really work on healing those muscles! I’m just not very intentional about exercising. My gap is really borderline (actually it wouldn’t even be considered diastasis but it LOOKS like it so I know it affects my tummy!). Anyway, you can check out the MuTu System online and she has some good free resources on her blog (I haven’t bought her actual program). I hope that’s helpful!

    Great pics! (as always)

  • Merci says:

    I never could tell you have a “mom” tummy!! But thanks for being real – ha! I need to go get some spanx quick. Nothing. I mean nothing fits right or looks right, yet. I am going to have to try those jeans! Four months since my last baby 🙂 – I was running to get ready for the Color Run 5k here in Ventura and had to stop because everything started to hurt!

  • Nikki says:

    what a fun adventure with your littles. all of you look stylish. old navy rocks!



  • lidia says:

    these photos are great! i love all the colors.

  • Denise says:

    I work regularly too and haven’t got rid of the stretchy tummy either, am thinking full piece for summer bathers, I relax more when it’s covered too. My hubby thinks I look great in a two piece- bikini-, but I’m not so sure anymore, I’m 42 now. What do you think?

  • Amy says:

    Absolutely ADORE these photos – especially the second one of Brave and True!
