Children's Museum

We went to the Children's Museum last week with Lydia and her mommy and with Lydia's cousin Eva and her mommy, and the baby brothers and sister too. The adult to child ratio was 3 to 6, but we managed quite well, as far as I could tell.
The museum had a temporary special exhibit about fairy tales, so below you'll see Sophie checking some of those out. She rode in Cinderella's carriage (that's Eva with her)...

And counted the ogre's (from Jack and the Beanstalk) gold...

Sophie supped at Beauty and the Beast's fancy table...

And visited Cinderella's carriage again, this time in costume. Lydia too.

We went to a different exhibit and got to touch real turtles. Woohoo! Then we got to use hand-sanitizer. Woohoo!

The girls even got to pretend to be turtles themselves.

This is Eva, the turtle.

And this is Sophie.

The museum has a really cool outdoor art park exhibit where the kids can make art in various forms. This one had damp sand that was sculptable.

Lunch time--cafeteria-style.

There were face paints set out for a do-it-yourself makeover. Sophie opted for a do-it-mommy makeover instead, requesting to look like a cat.

Sophie and Eva rode the bus, just like the "work bus" daddy rides to work each day. This is how Sophie distinguishes yellow buses ("school bus") from white buses ("work bus").

Doing a little laundry. Too bad it's not our own.
Playing with bubbles.

I love the picture of Sophie in the turtle-- it makes me chuckle every time!
