Hello! I am hiding under the blankets again. I got rid of the cat by pretending to sleep.
It’s rather late for our daily nap, but Mr.1 was playing so nicely with the magnet tiles and I didn’t want to tear him away. Honestly, if you are scratching your head about Christmas presents and you don’t already own a set of these, I think you should make the investment. They get used EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Except maybe yesterday, but it was a wonderful and strange day.
The first Thursday of every month is Museum Free Thursday in Seattle, where a number of museums let you in for free.
Yesterday we went to the Burke Museum of Natural History which is located on the UW campus. Parking was awful and expensive ($9 for 3 hours) but the Museum was awesome.
It’s a rather small museum; you could run a lap around the top floor in about 35 seconds. I know this because Mr. 1 was all about running away from me.
Mr. 3 wanted to stay in their “class room” area and do floor puzzles.
The lower level is dedicated to cultural artifacts and the top level is dedicated to dinosaurs and also a volcano.
In fact, they were in the process of cleaning a T-Rex skull that was found recently. You could watch them do it! According to the museum there have only been about 15 complete skulls found for the popular Tyrannosaurus Rex.
We had so much fun that Mr. 1 fell asleep in the car and Mr. 3 fell asleep in his barn. (At that point he was Snowflake the horse.)
The rest of the day seemed like it was spent playing “fire truck rescue” and “ambulance driver”.
The strange part was at dinner. Instead of eating, Mr. 3 insisted on taking a bubble bath. This was his first bath since that time I told you I got in the tub with them… a month ago?
Mr. 1 ate a little bit and then joined his brother. We had to drain the tub once due to the little one pooping in the tub. Yuck!
