Children's Museum

I'm in between trips this week. I got home from Turks and Caicos on Sunday night, and leave this Saturday for Dallas to meet my sweet new niece, Jae Beth. Yes, there will be pictures, coming! Can't wait!

Though both trips are wonderful, it's quite a bit of time for my little pickle and I to be apart. We're typically somewhat joined at the hip. Literally. Which should cause you to raise your eyebrows at least a little bit, because he is not a light boy!! Anyway...

I decided we should do something extra special this week, and venture into the city for the day. Landon was squealing in the backseat as we pulled up to the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh. This could have been because of the unbelievably amazing outdoor jungle gym that he saw...he didn't, however, seem to notice (or care) that it was completely desolate and covered with snow. After explaining what Spring is, we headed inside...

Pittsburgh was Mr. Roger's home, and the bottom floor of the museum has been recreated to look like his infamous living room. His real shoes, piano, and even blue cardigan were all on display! Landon loved driving the life-size trolley, and climbing inside King Friday's castle. Upstairs we climbed rope ladders "high into the sky", created sparkly purple paper, painted a masterpiece, fished for magnetic octopuses, went down huge twirly slides, laughed as we tried to walk in sideways rooms, made virtual puppets, and shared a box of Swedish Fish.

Nothing like relishing my little boy for an afternoon!

PS. Check it out...even the website is really fun!
