An Extra Kid

Please excuse the lack of posts lately.  I feel like I’m still in recovery mode.  As mentioned in a previous post, we traveled around 3000 miles this summer.  We drove to Idaho (which also included a bit of Montana and Wyoming), to Sacramento, and back home.  We had a family reunion in Idaho and another one in Sacramento.  From the reunion in Sacramento, we picked up a cousin to bring home with us.  Actually, she is the daughter of my cousin who lives in Portland.  We spent our fair share of time at their place last summer and we thought it would be fun for The Girl and The Cousin to have some extra play time this summer.  They are really similar and love playing together.  We did have a great time, but trying to entertain a two-year-old, a five-year-old, and a six-year-old can get exhausting.  Especially if you want to show the visitor all that San Diego has to offer.

Anyway, our first destination was The New Children’s Museum.  I’ve mentioned before how much we love it there.  This day we didn’t make in until lunch time, which was great!  Usually we’re there in the morning and some days it can get a little busy.  Going on a Monday afternoon (or maybe it was Tuesday.  I can’t remember now) was perfect.  We stayed until they closed at 4.  The destination of the day was the bubbles.

We were the only ones out on the bubble patio for a while and the kids loved it!

They figured out that if their hands were all soapy from the bubbles that they could actually catch bubbles in their hands!  Who knew?  The girls had fun catching them and The Boy had fun popping the ones that the girls would catch (much to the girls’ dismay).  We also spent a bunch of time in the barn room having a barn dance.  This room is really only for kids two and under and their families so it probably wasn’t the best place for us to be hanging out, but The Boy (who is 2) loves it and so did the girls.  And, as I mentioned before, nobody else was there.  The Boy loved the switches.

We tried to figure out what each of them did.  He didn’t care so much, though, and really just wanted to turn them on and off.  I’m so glad I bought the family membership to the museum because we have definitely taken advantage of it.  We love spending time there!
