Yesterday, we had a great time at the Children's Discovery Museum with Nana J. It was her first visit, so we had fun showing her all the cool stuff. As usual, we started off in the Wonder Cabinet, which was as big a hit as ever. The water play area was also lots of fun, even though it was extremely crowded with older kids who were there on field trips. (To be expected towards the end of the school year.) There weren't enough smocks to go around, so the kids got soaked head to toe, but I'd brought a change of clothes so it wasn't a disaster.
After getting doused, we headed outside to the garden area. Nana and I hung out while the kids dripped dry a bit and "painted" with water on the concrete. It always amazes me how much fun can be had with this simple activity, but it never fails to amuse and entertain.
We stayed at the museum through lunchtime, and then everybody got excellent naps when we got home.
Then, Nana was kind enough to watch the kids while S and I went out for dinner. A bit of a belated celebration of our 11th anniversary. Hung out at Santana Row for a bit, ate at Maggiano's Little Italy (which was delicious). We got home to BJ having a minor meltdown -- apparently he'd broken down in the bathtub, sobbing about how much he missed his mommy and daddy. Break your heart! But even so, it was definitely a good day.
