A couple weeks ago I was invited to a blogger event at the Please Touch Museum for the opening ceremonies of the ABC Games exhibit, part of the museum’s Get Up and Grow™ healthy lifestyles initiative.
We so rarely get a chance to do things with just Kiel, so it seemed like the perfect excuse for Rich and me to take a day off work and go have some fun with him.
We walked into the museum and I swear Kiel almost exploded with excitement. He's usually a bit reserved in new situations, but he practically took off running as soon as he saw the first exhibit.
He climbed rock walls.
|He rode exercise bikes.|
|He walked on the treadmill.|
Then we went downstairs and he took a walk through Alice in Wonderland, where he served us tea.
And more tea.
Then he drove the dump truck,
honked the horn,
and moved some bricks.
Then he rode the motorcycle to the grocery store,
where he did our weekly shopping.
He likes cookies, even if they are low-cal.
There wasn't much left at the meat counter,
but he found lots of things he liked at the bakery.
Unfortunately for us he's a bigger fan of plastic melons than he is of the real thing.
His favorite part though was riding the carousel, which we did three different times. I haven't been on one in years and I loved it too.
We had a great time, and it was an absolute treat for all three of us to have a day off to just play. It still fascinates me watching Kiel play, in part because it is such a different experience from when Noah was this age. Kiel actually plays, where Noah just ran from one thing to the next usually leaving destruction behind him.
So a big thanks to the Please Touch Museum for inviting us!
**I'd like to blame the somewhat crappy pictures on my camera, (because I really, really would like a new one that takes decent pictures without me feeling like I just got lucky,) but in this case I realized after I looked at the pictures I took that there was a big smudge on the lens.**
