Making the Kids a Little Smarter

Last week I took Abby and Garrett to the Arizona Museum for Youth.
We had so much fun! I haven't been there since Cassidy was about this age and will definitely have to go back sooner than that! The kids had a BLAST playing in the kids town and I loved seeing all the Jim Henson memorabilia. We got to see Kermit the Frog, Bert and Ernie and a lot of other fun Muppet characters. We also got to go to the Berenstain Bears exhibit and I showed the kids who writes and draws all those fun books. this was very hands on and a definite do over!

Garrett loved picking the corn and grilling me some for a snack.

Abby was of course READY to cook me some lunch.
She's going to be a Chef when she grows up I just know it!
The kids got to make faces out of some fun puppets.

Garrett is so funny!

They LOVED the puppet show and truth be told.... so did I! How fun to put on a puppet show!

They made a story with cute story board pieces.

Garrett had a great time and I'm sure we will try to go back this summer. Thanks for being a great aunt.

I love the Muppets AND Berenstein Bears so much! Two of my childhood favorites. What a fun place.

Wow. That looks like our kind of museum.

Yet another reason to miss living in AZ - what are you trying to do to me here! This and the orange blossoms and the temple display ... ALMOST enough to make a girl forget the 'baking in the oven' feeling every summer.

I hope this will open from here. If not, type it in. Tell me what you think of Edward.
