Despite the fact that we live less than a 20 minute walk away from both the MFA and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum we had yet to visit either of them since moving to our apartment in the winter of 2009. I had been to the Gardner Museum once in college on a “field trip” for my Art History class and had loved it then and wanted to share the experience with Scott.

We got the motivation we needed in the form of a Groupon for 2 adult tickets with a “postcard package” for $15. Yesterday was a rather dismal day so after our run and an episode of Flight of the Conchords watched while we ate lunch, we decided to mosey on over to the museum.

It was even more incredible than I remembered. My favorite is still the courtyard.

Scott was away this weekend visiting his family before his Dad’s upcoming surgery. I stayed home with Youk as he does not get along well with one of Scott’s sister’s dogs (did you get all that?). Poor Youkie, he has no idea how much of a pain he is to other dogs.

Here’s the breakdown:
