It was so gorgeous this past weekend, when I was home in NY. I hadn't been to the PepsiCo sculpture gardens in 5 years so we decided to head on over. The sculptures are on the grounds of the PepsiCo company, yes, that pepsi (and frito lay, gatorade, and someone else). There headquarters is in Purchase are on some stunning grounds and there are these amazing sculptures all around - it's totally free to go an walk around! 
 This is "Grande Disco" by Arnaldo Pomodoro
 "Kiosque L'evide" by Jean Dubuffet
"Hats Off" by the one and only Alexander Calder
 "Energy Void"- I have similar pictures from our first trip five years ago, of course I had to re-create it!
"Grizzly Bear" -- "Through the Sound Barrier" - "Totem" 
"Meridian" - "Triad" - "Frog"
"The Giant Trowel II" - "Marie" - "Kiosque L'evide" and "Grande Disco"
 "Double Oval" by Henry Moore
Mom had some fun talking with one of the women in "Three People on Four Benches"
 I want this garden in my yard one day, less grass to mow!
Okay, so I was being goofy (shocking) and my mom said our favorite line from "The Princess Diaries" which is Princess don't schlump - so of course I had to reenact it!
