The lady who ran the Bend museum, however, may have been running a children's museum for a few too many years. When she found out we were from Seattle she told us that in two weeks she was going to be going on vacation. She would sail out of Coleman Dock in Seattle and vacation for two weeks in Port Townsend with a bunch of high school friends. She could hardly wait, she told us, with a look in her eye that made me worry she might try to stow away in our stroller. "Take me to Seattle! I can't take it anymore! If I have to clean out one more kid-sized grocery cart I may implode!"
Here's Hannah the Asian Princess and Emma the Parrot. Miriam is a very disgruntled Fire...person.
And now she's a monkey. Poor kid. She's just too fun to dress up!
And this picture was just too cute to pass up. Not taken at the Children's Museum, but Blogger and I don't agree on proper picture placement, so here it is. Please note: Emma's pushing the scooter with one of my Dad's golf clubs. We're all about safety around here.
Shout out to Uncle Dave. This looks like the latest in ultrasound technology, right? This was in the vetrinary clinic in the museum. Note the girls are wearing stethoscopes and scrubs.
Emma kayaking through the outdoor portion of the museum. Life jackets on - so we can be safe! (Name that cartoon character!)
Some South of the Border costumes.
The girls "painting" in the construction/building area.
Hannah's weather predictions... or forecasts. You be the judge. Emma was running the TV camera so that we could see Hannah on the TV screen. You know they loved that.
The grocery store - a necessary part of any kid's museum. I tried taking Miriam into here, but she just kept shoving all the make-believe food into her mouth. Hmmm... maybe should have given her more lunch that day.
