Grounds for Sculpture

I apologize for the lack of posts recently. After we got back from Florida, I had a lot going on so I didn't get a chance to pre-write anything before we had company for a week. But, on the bright side, we did all kinds of neat things this past week, and there's probably two weeks' worth of posts to be written about the fun!!

Jonathan's parents came to visit for a week, and we were able to spend Easter with them. After Easter Dinner (our first one hosting, which was exciting. For posterity, we had hickory-smoked spiral ham with glaze, Amish potato salad, macaroni & cheese, zesty green beans in white wine, and red velvet cake for dessert), we went to Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. It's barely outside of Trenton, and easy to find. It was probably about twenty minutes from our place, and it took us a little over two hours to walk through the entire thing.

The setup was a little strange, just in that it was kinda difficult to plan a path. I'm not even positive that we saw everything in the end, but we sure got a glimpse of most everything. Most the the exhibits are outside, but there are a few installations inside, and it was neat to see everything. We even came upon some pieces that were under construction. We all had our favorites, and overall it was a really neat place. Jonathan really enjoyed the Albert Paley pieces and the peacocks running around.
