We came home to relax and have a quiet family dinner. Happy Birthday my love. Here's to a year of new and exciting times.
Years ago William used to not like to finger paint, he didn't like the paint on his fingers, but now that is all changed. It was fun to watch the older boys get into as much as a 15 month old.
We have had these same finger paints forever. They were a bit thin. My goal this summer is to use what we have and to create on a more regular basis. Like everyday would be nice. Early in the morning when everyone is fresh really is the best time- but it is also the best time for so many other things, so we will try to fit it in when we can.
The museum is made up of old buildings that were meant for destruction but instead were saved and all moved to these beautiful grounds. After all the workshops we just went for a walk to check out all the other buildings. They each had a theme, such as circus, blacksmith, art galleries, a lighthouse, a gun collection, vintage toys, etc. The shuttle tour guide(because you know we had to try it our) summed it up pretty nicely. It is a collection of collections. We thought of how much our Grammy would enjoy it- a visit during the summer is needed though since it is only open May- October(hint, hint).
We ended the day with several rides on the carousel. The big boys were so excited for Harkin to go on it. It was a long day but full of fun and excitement.
