There was a weekend day that was just too hot… like ‘don’t know how to walk outside’ kind of hot.  We convinced the kids to get into our air conditioned car and drove to the city – it was that hot.  And we spent the day indoors at The Met, where the kids love the Revolutionary War paintings and floor of knights’ armor. But currently there’s an interesting show on display called Heavenly Bodies and The Catholic Imagination – a thoroughly engaging show featuring couture fashion that’s been inspired by the Catholic church in some way, shape or form. There are vestments donated by the Pope that are shown in the basement as well, but we weren’t allowed to photograph those. Zoe and I loved the more modern homages to religious life upstairs anyhow: the Dolce and Gabbana collection of nun-like black dresses, and of course who wouldn’t marvel at a set of paper-thin wood wings? And the environment (the Met’s room of Renaissance and Medieval religious art) couldn’t be more perfect, especially with choir music piped in.  We were transformed out of the (heat wave) hell outside, that’s for sure.
