We were invited to join Graham and Melissa at the Children's Museum this afternoon. Even though it meant taking a 'power nap' in between our morning exercise program at Burnsville Center, and a quick 'elevensie' meal, we felt like we hadn't seen them forever, and were really excited to catch up!
Unfortunately, the HabiTot exhibit (baby-friendly playland) was completely full-- there were strollers everywhere, and lots of bigger mobile kids running around like they had just consumed liters of kool-aid using only pixie sticks. So-- we decided to explore the other galleries (namely, Sesame Street).
Melissa and I relived the moment of Luis & Maria's wedding while the kids were transfixed by the screen. Some 'educational moment', huh?? We did manage to spy Big Bird, though--- but as you could see from the lead-in picture, Alex seemed a bit apprehensive. And (for Cathleen), we listened to a big-screen version of "Put down the Duckie!"
After coming home, Alex was ravenous. She finished her 4 tbsp of oatmeal in record time, and ate all of her prunes and peas! It apparently takes a lot of energy to be such a busy girl.
