This one may be lengthy!
If you have been following me for very long you know how much I treasure my visits with my daughter, Carrie aka Solar Powered and her family. The joy has doubled in the last month with the birth of Mr B. Last week I paid a visit to their home in NW Arkansas. We planned this visit to coincide with the first Monday of the month for the activities held at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. (more about the museum later, it deserves it's own post)
Lila has become quite the museum lover, thanks to the variety of activities planned for children. She and I took the guided preschool tour while Mom walked baby around the grounds (no stopping for him)
The theme was "Circles". All of the art and exhibits were filled with circles and the children listened with such excitement and then pointed out the circles. It was a very impressive tour and Lila loved it, IF she could have touched them all. That girl needs to touch!
After the tour, we headed outdoors for the fun......
First stop, Hula Hoops!!
Looks to Nanny for instruction.....LOL
OK Lila, I'll spin it for you and you just wiggle, wiggle, wiggle!
Next stop, Parachute Drop!
After the beach balls were all in the center they took a handle and the fun began!
Up and down, up and down....it was a workout. Once we went under the parachute and made a tent. Well, I didn't stay under for long....too hot for me!
The real thrill of this came when we walked away and Lila said, "now Nanny that was fun"!
As I said it really was a hot day. Mom and baby had had enough so we headed home to cool off.
Mr B was more than happy to get out of the hot stroller, shed his clothes do some stretching under the ceiling fan!
A nice long feeding, back to sleep....Life is Good!
