After experiencing the magic that is Dean & Deluca, we couldn't help but to stop there for breakfast again the very next day. Michelle was at the register purchasing chocolate-dipped macaroons (the coconut drops, not those fancy french treats), as she did the day before, explaining to the employee that she is allergic to most flours. And then, something happened that made us love the place even more -- they told us they had a whole selection of gluten-free pastries!!!! Michelle chose this muffin and I can't for the life of me remember what it was... I think it was like a brown sugar nut muffin or something. Made with potato flour? Mitch, what was it again?? Anyway, that made us all very happy. I really wanted the chocolate pistachio pastry again but I picked the raspberry almond croissant instead. Delish.
We spent the rest of the day at The Met, although that was not nearly enough time. I now understand why people purchase annual passes there... it is absolutely impossible to take in all there is to see in one day. I was exhausted after and I barely made a dent in the exhibits.
Some pictures of us on the steps, so GG ♥
We started off in what I think was the Baroque era, which, needless to day, was one of the more boring sections... hahah :/ so Mitch gave us homework: we all had to draw our favorite piece.
I guess we are pretty immature, so we got bored pretty quickly. We decided to spice things up by taking our own interpretations of the artwork.
That was the end of that haha. Hope you enjoyed. We decided to take the museum a little more seriously.
Bay and I wandered off at this point and didn't see anybody until the museum closed. We went to see the Byzantine art, Egyptian art, and Asian art.
I drew this mosaic later for my "homework". She reminded me of Princess Jasmine. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of my masterpiece
Starving and exhausted, Bay and I left the museum. We found Ryan outside on the steps alone eating a pretzel. We immediately joined him. I had no money with me so Bailey bought us a pretzel hahaha ♥
Our pretzels didn't do the job so we walked over to a little sushi spot, where our family joined us.
The moms had a fair share of sapporo
And then I opened a beautiful fortune
