The other night my dear friends (and blog followers)Tookie and Jack, left two tickets for the Killer Heels Show in my mail basket.
Today my friend Vincie and I used them to see the Killer Heels show right here in Pittsburgh.
We had the best time.
Here’s a gallery of Killer Heels and A link to the show Killer Heels Frick Art Museum and opening night party sounded pretty wild and fun. The show is there until September 4th. Post-Gazette story about opening party
Did you ever watch Sex and the City?
Here is an old Post with Killer Heels tag after I saw the show in New York with my sister.
In this second post, I mentioned the Brooklyn Museum First Night December 2014 But I didn’t photograph any of the Killer Heels show then- maybe photography was not allowed?
Today I asked the guard if I could use my phone camera without flash and he said yes
The visitor center had a display case of Mrs. Frick’s shoes
Thanks Tookie and Jack. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

After the birthday party (grown up), the nextdoor neighbor kids were playing in the puddles.
There’d been a downpour.
Kids love puddles. They are like magnets to them.
Taking a break from the cherry on top challenge although I was considering another shoot.
When the family visited we went to the Children’s Museum a couple of times. One of the favorite rooms is called The Garage. The kids tried to catch the balls that were held up by air blowing out of the table.
Laura held Charles as he reached for the ball.
It was easier for Maura to catch the balls.
One more try

Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge
and a big nod to Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen sculpture Spoonbridge and Cherry in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the sculpture garden- Walker Art Center The spoon weighs 5,800 pounds the cherry 1,200 pounds. I saw this sculpture when we visited Matthew when he was a student at Macalester College in St. Paul. It came to mind when I was thinking about photographing a cherry on top for the weekly photo challenge.
And the cell phone shots below to compare which I thought looked better than the good camera.
