Tuesday night date.

We are trying to set up a regular Tuesday "date night". Tonight was the first one in the series. It's always a challenge to figure out what to do - something interesting & pretty cheap. Something adult, but not too fancy, something that doesn't go on too late because it's a work/school night. We settled on going to the Natural History museum which was open late - until 7:30 pm.

Parts of the museum are the same as when I was a child and I just love that I can remember standing in front of the same display 30 years ago. I also love the retro font and I'm a little sad because I know someone is already thinking about how to renovate it to make it more up to date with computer touch screens and interactive exhibits.

This is also the first time that I remember seeing the Mall on a weekday evening. The light was beautiful and there were lots of kickball games.
