Children's Museum

Hamilton and I spent the morning at the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry with Amanda and Grady, who have a family pass. Hamilton loves this place, and I love it because he's able to run around and explore everything without my having to follow so closely after him. He thoroughly enjoys the WaterWise room because of all the boats and water to splash in.
Notice how the water-soaked "paintbrush" for the chalkboard went straight to Hamilton's mouth.
I love the little, plastic smocks the museum provides, so his clothes stay as dry as possible despite Hamilton's best efforts.
We usually finish our time at the museum in the toddler play-area that has comfy chairs for me and lots of toys and other children for Hamilton to enjoy.
Hamilton found a comfy spot of his own to enjoy his pretzels.


  1. so funny. Joseph used to stick the paint brush in his mouth too.

  2. Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
