Next, we went to play with bubbles, which is always a hit, and from there we went up to the Wonder Cabinet.
Here she is dressing up for a tea party with another kid:
Art was particularly interesting to BB this time around, especially the watercolor drip painting.
Of course the big blocks are always fun.
We had fun exploring the circles exhibit, where BB played in the circle boat (which she clearly remembered from her last visit) and experimented with the mirrors that made circular reflections.
We finished up with another new exhibit, which seemed focused on the natural world. I didn't catch the name of the exhibit -- by then we were pretty tired and headed for the door. But BB was enchanted by the whirlwind, where she could toss in leaves and watch them spiral up. A fitting metaphor for toddler energy, wouldn't you say?
I finally managed to get a picture of the sculpture at the entrance: a mama bear nursing her twin cubs. I love this little bit of public art, not the least for its pro-breastfeeding beauty!
What a nice bit of girl time we had. My little BB is getting to be such excellent company! And as always, being out with "just" one kid feels so easy. It's funny now to think back on how hard I thought it was when only BJ was around!
