We stayed busy playing tourists all week long. I don't think I've ever walked so much in one week. It wasn't all fun and games, though. Kassidy still had homework - ah the joy of being an IB student. Luckily, one assignment was right up our alley. There was an Egyptian exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, in St. Petersburg, FL and this was an assignment we could all participate in. It was our first time there, so we made a day of it.
There were some amazing displays and some strange things, too. The Egyptian exhibit was ok, but didn't seem nearly as big as the Ramses exhibit I saw when I was a kid. Maybe it's because I'm bigger now?
We enjoyed a nice lunch there before moving on. I wish I would have taken a photo of the almond crusted brie I had. OMG it was amazing.
Since we were in the area, we decided to walk to the Florida Holocaust Museum. What a moving experience that was. I was worried that my youngest would be bored, but the tour is narrated by a wand you wear around your neck that has a speaker. You enter in a number located by each exhibit and you get a personal storyteller. It really kept her attention.

We finished up the museum just as it was closing, which also meant rush hour. Hmmm...what could we do while the traffic dies down? Ohhh...look what I see down the street!
Well, ok! I love finding these new little treasures. Of course we had to go try out a gourmet cupcake at the Cupcake Spot. It was too inviting.
