Vistor from Texas

A week or so ago my niece mailed a letter to K with Flat Stacey inside asking us to take her out and about and then send her back. K loved it! She loves getting mail from her cousins and talks about them all the time even though its been nearly a year or more since we've seen them.
Last Thursday Flat Stacey joined us for the evening.
First we went to ballet practice. The spring recital is just about a month away!

After ballet we went to dinner at TGI Friday's. YUM! I think Friday's may be my fave! 3 Words ... Cheesy.Bacon.Cheeseburger. Fried provolone anyone? (Shhhh, we'll not talk about the 5 pounds gained in one 45 minute dining session.)

After our consumption of greasy,fried foods we walked about 4 blocks to the Creative Discovery Museum. And when I say "we" I really mean "they." You see, just a week ago it was sunny and 80 but by Thursday it was rainy and 50. I drove around for 30 minutes looking for a spot closer to the museum, all nice and toasty in the van. Spot found, fun on!

Here is Flat Stacey checking out the dinosaurs and digging for dinosaur bones. I still have sand in my shoes.

From dinosaurs we moved on upstairs for the revolving exhibit. This time it was about what it is like to live in different parts of the world. K & Flat Stacey made stationary, fished and even designed their own house.

After that we headed up the tower overlooking our great city. Its such a family friendly place.

The museum closed shortly afterwards. We didn't get to visit all the exhibits this time, but there will certainly be another trip in the near future as Curious George is coming soon.

That concludes our visit with Flat Stacey. She was folded back up and shipped to Texas last Friday. Hope she had a safe trip!
