>> Thursday, August 28, 2014 – San Antonio
A few weekends ago, Evan took Deacon and me to the Matisse exhibit at the San Antonio Museum of Art. I really like Matisse, and Deacon really liked the museum because it echoed his baby screams so well.
Deacon did admire the paintings a little (see below) but mostly he played with his keys and shrieked and hollered in an echoey delight. The other art enthusiasts pretended to be amused.
Afterward, we finally hit La Gloria, which we've been wanting to try for years now- it was as good as the hype. It was also really loud in there, which is very conducive for good naps, so we mostly got to eat in peace. We dined with a restaurant full of Matisse attendees, apparently we all had the same good idea. Then we took a very brief and very sweaty walk by the river (just upriver from the River Walk).
Evan is trying to push his birds out of the nest (me, mostly, but Deacon gets to come too) so we've been doing some more "activities" lately. I'd be fine to stay at home in my sweatpants until death-do-us-part, but Evan won't have it. In a few weeks, we are going to join another couple for a Matisse Painting Night (one of those Canvas and Chianti, sip and paint, BYOB art places). Of course it was Evan's idea, but I'm really looking forward to it. Matisse seems to be our theme of the summer- minus his love of harems.
