Thursday fun

 We went to the science museum today and explored some new areas.
 Like the hall of mirrors
 But her favorite thing is still the train room and the station where you can pain your face. As I mentioned in her 19th month post, she loves coloring. So here she is just getting started. Most of the kids were drawing hearts, peace signs, or just adding a little color...
 But not Isabella. She went to town. I decided to drag her away at the point the colors started going in her eyes. She was not happy about my decision. We went off to see other things, and I think she forgot about the color on her face.
 Because when she saw herself she was shocked and confused...
 Then she said COLOR?!!!
And was like, "Yeah, I'm rocking this painted face!!"

 We went to the Art's Festival that evening. The atmosphere of our city was alive and vibrant. Michael's mom was able to join us, and we ran into some old friends and some of our good friends from church.
After dinner we headed over the to splash pad. Isabella was a little hesitant at first, but then she got in and had a great time.

We decided to move on after her second crash and a big collision with an older kid.

 I tried the Cinn and Corruption per recommendation: warm cinnamon roll bites, ice cream, whipped cream, caramel sauce, nuts, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar...WOW.
It was a day that included every day things like laundry, unloading and loading the dishwasher, making breakfast and lunch, doing nap time, but also things like a great walk through our neighborhood, fun at the museum together, and a great time at the art's festival. I tried to soak in and appreciate the ordinary along with the extraordinary. I went to bed with a full and happy heart. (And I went to bed lamenting that I am reading the last harry potter book. A little slow on getting into these, but I have loved the last several books and I'm sad to finish the series.)

  1. What an artist! And...she stayed in the lines :) Your posts with instagram photos are the only reason I want an iphone in my life. I'm sure I could take my ipad places and take photos with it but that wouldn't be very handy.
