Bowers Kidseum

I got word today Tuesday has graduated from the PICU unit and has been moved to oncology! This is great news, she's getting better and can hang out in the less scary ward of the hospital. The PICU team all clapped for her and called her a miracle! I'm so happy for Tuesday.

Today my SIL, Karen, and I took the peeps to Bowers Kidseum. It was a great place for them. Like most moms, I'm always looking for a good place that'll be fun and interest them. More so, a place where I can let them out of the stroller without worrying about breaking anything or having people give me glaring looks. I'm also taking advantage of the fact they're under 2 years of age and usually free admission. I'm going to be really bummed when I have to start forking over the extra dollars :-)

L&B stepping down from the bridge they've crossed. They weren't sure about the floor beneath them not being steady.

A glimpse of all the cool masks and instruments the kids are encouraged to pick up and play with.

Cousin Maggie and Auntie Karen putting on a puppet show. Luke mesmorized by the dragon puppet.

Maggie and Bree dressing up from the trunks filled with international costumes.

I'm amazed Luke knew how to work the rotary phone!

Kids in the Language Exploration room learning different symbols. Actually, just Maggie learning. L&B enjoyed climbing onto the big kids chairs.

What a neat place. The kids look so darn big and of course cute as ever!

So wonderful to hear about Tuesday. Yeah!

What a great recap. Looking at the pictures of the kids I think I'm seeing some family resemblances... partly expressions and mannerisms. Luke particularly has some looks to him that remind me of Ryan.

It was so much fun to hang out with guys today. I'll always remember this day. There was something special about it for me, despite little man R being a Pill for the better part of it.

That looks like a really cool museum! I hear you about loving to find places where the kids can be turned loose without worrying about them getting into too much trouble! Wow, your kids are starting to look so big. Luke is so handsome and Bree is just so pretty!

my kids would have had that place destroyed in 2 minutes LOL.

Now tell me why we haven't checked out that place before? I like the taking advantage of the under 2 freebies.
