Outdoor Mosaic

The outside is a work of art in itself.  There is a huge mosaic and sculptures to greet you in the courtyard at the entrance.

Once inside, the museum is a incredibly quiet and uncrowded.  It is virtually just you and the masters.

The museum also has an emerging artist area.  This piece by Los Angeles artist, Nathan Mabry, was done with colored pencil and the teeth were iced out Swarovski Crystal.

Minda said this statue looked just like me.  I guess it is true, everyone has a doppelganger out there!

DMA 013

Kissed by graffiti

I loved our time at the museum, and it loved me right back!

After acting like proper young ladies we headed back outside.  Being the most gloriously sunny day, we crossed the street to Klyde Warren Park.  My monkeys could finally be monkeys again.

Playing in fountains are probably the most blissful thing in life to a four year old.  As much fun as we were having, I was working up an appetite!

Food Trucks at Klyde Warren

With a row of food trucks we had a tough decision to make, but in the end, tacos from Abe’s Flavor Flave won!

Street Tacos from Abe's Flavor Flave

The street tacos are served on warm corn tortillas glistening in oil and pilled up with shredded chicken and grilled onions, topped with cilantro and even more onions.  The veggie tacos came with a smear of refried beans topped with cheese, avocado, tomatoes, and lettuce.

Nacho Cheese

And an order of ballpark style nachos with a large cheese to chip ratio.  Nothing special, but what can I say, this girl loves nachos!

Klyde Warren Walkway

We strolled through the ball topped arches to soak up a few last moments of this serene scene, and take a few snaps at the BIG sign.
