Miss A had Thursday of last week off from school for Parent Teacher's Conferences. As the sole elementary student in our family, it meant that she was all alone in having a day off. Perfect excuse for a trip to our favorite children's museum about one hour away with one of our "little" friends.
We had a great morning exploring Space, Water, Gravity, Farming and the world of Engineering. Really, where else can you experience so much in so little time? Miss A's imagination was running full as we played each other in football and volleyball, as she grocery shopped to fill her basket with healthy choices, and trying time and again to make a ball go up a chute of piping tubes.
I've been to this museum probably two dozen times with various children in our family/friends and cousins and its a fun experience every time. Miss A and I had a fun time with our little buddy and his Mom. According to Miss A, our lunch out at the Noodles Company allowed her to eat her favorite Mac and Cheese ever. It's so yummy and made with real to goodness cheese. "Well I do like your Pioneer Woman mac and cheese too mom, but this is really good." I believe those were Miss A's words when she saw my sad puppy dog face.
I love to watch this girl of mine have fun and experience new and old things. She is a real joy.
