Once upon a time, the museum was in the Ogden/Newgate mall. I remember going there as a little girl and sitting on this chair/large lady's lap. It was so neat. They had a slide that went inside the treehouse and out the bottom. It was amazing.
It has been a little while since I went to the tree house museum, which has relocated as the mall is not longer even there, but they still had the old lady and then slide.
This time...they had neither.
I was so mad! So upset! They had gotten rid of those precious childhood memories I had of those two things. Such a disappointment.
Nonetheless, we still had a good time.
These two had a blast.
This kid was in heaven.
The music room was by far the favorite of the day. These two would have played in here the entire time if I would have let them.
Stealing the chess pieces.
And a disclaimer...I really try to avoid dressing my kids in the same thing, I just think it's weird. But Munchkin insisted that he wear the same thing as his brother and I wasn't in the mood to put up a fight.
We went to the Living Planet Aquarium on a saturday. Bad idea. There were a ton of people there. It was a little crowded, but we still got to see everything, just a lot more waiting our turn. Next time, we will go during the week.
Looking for the otters.
They were totally asleep. Lame.
Touching a sting ray. Of course this requires such concentration that makes him stick his tongue out.
And Chubbs of course having to do the same thing at Munchkin.
Doesn't matter that he can't see, he just wants to touch it because Munchkin did.
I love this pictures. It's kinda hard to tell, but Chubbs is looking at Munchkin, but actually making oowing and awing noise. So cute.
This is the only photo that they were even remotely looking at me.
Now that Chubbs is a little older, it's fun to take him to places like this and see his reaction. He loved the frogs and the penguins. Munchkin's favorite was the stingray.
My little boys are growing up! Chubbs is almost 17 months old and Munchkin will be six later this month. So crazy.
I took this top picture just over a year ago and this bottom one just the other day.
Some things never change, and some things do.
The other day I actually wore something cute to work and had the time to iron it. Ironing is a total deal breaker in deciding what I am going to wear for the day and 99% of the time, if it needs to be ironed it doesn't get worn for a while.
So Munckin took my picture, then insisted I take his...
Dress: Tulle ($7.50), Sweater: Old Navy (super old), Leggings: NY&Co (old). Boots: BDBG, TJ Maxx ($50).
He's gonna break some hearts one day.
Shirt: Ralph Lauren, TJ Maxx ($10). White Top: Old Navy ($5). Jeans: H&M ($14.95). Shoes: H&M ($10).
Then there is Chubbs who just wanted to hold the camera.
He was satisfied with taking a picture of himself then looking at it right after.
