I found the nearly perfect museum for Princess

If it had just had ponies there, she would have been in heaven.  As it was this was nearly perfect.

Sigh, I need to learn not to mess with picture size on my lap top unless I want to think about throwing the thing through something for a while.

 

Back on topic.  She got to play “family,” which is what everyone else calls playing house.  She got to use all of the art supplies she could want.  I now have about 20 new pieces of art.  She’s discovered a new favorite medium: watercolor crayons.  I NEED to get some of these.  She played with blocks, and it was the coolest set of blocks I’ve seen yet.

The boys enjoyed it too, but for different reasons.

They got to wear costumes and be blue-screened into a cartoon.  That was beyond cool, and there was a black light room that fascinated the boys.

 

All in all, I’d have to give the Arizona Museum for Youth two thumbs up.  Oh, and I successfully folded a paper crane today for the first time:

And on a totally unrelated note, I have had that shirt this I was 13.  I got it for washing a HUGE Saint Bernard dog for the TV show “What Would You Do,” and after that I spent the next few years randomly getting phone calls from people whenever the episode I was in got aired on Nickelodeon.

 

Meanwhile back at the ranch, a phrase which here means back to the subject of my post, reasons why Princess was deliriously happy today.

She got to play with a baby and got read to while playing with the baby.  Pretty near to a perfect day.

And I’ll leave you with my amusing shot for the day.  Batman playing in the same type of baby gym he had as a baby.

Ahhhh…..  for that time when they were young.  You know when diapers were a line item in the budget……..
