She has always enjoyed the art of Georgia O'Keeffe, so they decided to go to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. The museum is free on Fridays, but since it was Saturday, Annette and Larry had to pay admission. Flat Stanley got in for free.

Since photography isn't allowed it the museum, we can't post any pictures. However we had a great time watching the movie about Georgia O'Keeffe's life, walking through the exhibits, and visting the gift shop.

The photo below shows Flat Stanley reading the brochures and other handouts from the museum. Flat Stanley liked the photograph of Georgia O'Keeffe riding a motorcycle the best.
