The next morning we woke up and went to the Musée d’Orsay. We got there by 11am or something like that and the kids were pretty hungry after a couple of hours in there. The girls had a good exposure to the impressionists, Monet’s haystacks and the Cathedral of Rouen which he painted over and over again in different lighting at different times of day. McKenzey especially liked a very large Water Lillies painting by Monet. We also saw a couple of Monet’s that are very famous : Déjeuner sur l’herbe and Olympia. We also say some nice Van Gogh’s that McKenzey liked, Starry Night (not the more famous one that is in NY, but this one and a great selfportrait : We also saw some of Gauguin paintings but I don’t think that they would remember them because they were totally worn out and famished. Oh, also at the Musée d’Orsay, we saw Whistler’s Mother.
