This Weekend

April 25th, 2010 by Chris

We had a busy weekend, but it was the sort-of nice busy when you take best advantage of that precious time away from weekday activities. We got a head start when I took off the afternoon from work and went to Pratt’s Falls…. and ice cream.

Nate chose this particular moment to read his first word without prompting. He simply pointed down to the graffiti on a park bench and said “Hey Mommy, this says…”

“…Ben.” Yeah, it could have been worse. Want more? Get more!

Yesterday, we spent the day in Rochester at the Strong National Museum of Play. We met our college friends Liz and Eric, as well as their two children, Clara and Perrin. We didn’t have too much time to visit, but it was nice to see them for a few minutes each time we passed.

We took the opportunity to visit their butterfly garden. I probably would have had more pictures, but I had not anticipated how much my camera would fog up. It was very warm and very humid in the enclosed garden. Still I managed to get some after my camera warmed up.

A good time was had by the kids of all ages.

Lest we forget that a play museum is for children only, I give you this tidbit from one of the museum placards:

More Strong pictures

We weren’t sure we were ever going to get Nate out of Sesame Street. He went back about four times, and we finally took this picture on the way out…
