The kids arrived Thursday afternoon for a several-days visit. We
woke to rain this morning, so switched our planned zoo visit to a visit to the
Portland Children's Museum.
(The Zoo and the Children's Museum share the same parking lot.)
A Children's Museum does not have children on display, but is a very nice indoor
play area. Leo visited the water play park, the theater, the veterinarian
office, a construction office, a construction site, a restaurant, a supermarket
and probably a whole bunch of other activities I can't recall.
Leo put on a plastic apron for the water-play area. The faster he turned the
black steering wheel, the more water squirted out of the green spigot...
spinning the turntable. Fun!
Kids just love playing in water.
But I think Bubba had a good time as well. Leo wore a safety
vest and hard hat in the construction office and a doctor coat in the vet
clinic. So much detail in this museum - I was impressed.
Lucy loved going down the slide while Dave and Leo worked on a little
Lucy had a lot of fun, as there were plenty of areas to amuse every age. The
Portland Children's Museum has a great performance stage, complete with
stadium seating, a blue velvet curtain and a TV set-up to the little
performers can watch themselves. Very cool. Whenever one of the kids closed
the curtains, the audience (parents) clapped.
We invited friends and family up to the house Friday
afternoon and had a houseful. Another great get-together.
