Philip and I have decided to go on a mini adventure each Wednesday this summer. We want to make sure we’re taking advantage of his loose summer schedule and we’ve been meaning to acquaint ourselves with more of the exciting things central New York and the Finger Lakes have to offer. This past weekend I was very excited to exhaustively research fun things to do within an hour drive (morning nap in the car!), and luckily I penciled in a few indoor adventures because it was drizzling with a high of 60 today. Undaunted by the March-like weather, we set out this morning to begin the first in our series of summer adventures: The Johnson Museum of Art and the Fall Creek Gorge Suspension Bridge (free and free!)
Alice dutifully fell asleep en route to Ithaca, we snagged one of the parking spots right in front of the museum, and we had just enough time to hop across the road and explore the gorge and suspension bridge before the museum opened. We slipped into the museum right before the hoards of school children on field trip, and Alice used her inside voice as we meandered around the galleries. We explored Cornell’s campus a bit afterwards and then found our way to the Ithaca Bakery for bagel sandwiches. All in all, a very successful first adventure. Alice then spent the rest of the day being a real crabbypants…so it goes.
I’m looking forward to adventure #2…perhaps with some summer weather!
