No map, make a map

Everyone slept in to 7am this morning. That’s unheard of and equivalent to 10am in non-parent hours. Bliss.

Of course this was a morning where we actually had to be somewhere at a set time, but it was fine and we made it to the Early Bird story time at Philadelphia Museum of Art. This was our first story time and the kids did good. They were excited and made it through all the parts (about 40 minutes): introductions, short gallery walk, story (Iggy Peck Architect), another short gallery walk, art activity and clean-up. Okay, I added in clean up because I think the staff are use to tidying up after the kids – oh the horror!

We followed Early Bird story time with an early bird lunch. After lunch I could tell that the girls needed a change of scene so we took the trolley bus to the Rodin Museum. None of us had been there before and we managed to fill an hour at this small museum. It’s so small that they don’t have a map.

The horror! HORROR!!!

So Zoey drew her own map and then guided us around.

The gardens were a big hit as we waited on the trolley bus back to the museum, and a much needed coffee slash milk and, black & white cookie.

We had a really nice day out and home in time for plenty of playing and a bike ride. It’s all good.

    Aw, sounds like a lovely day! And a great pic of you. Iggy Peck is cool. Have you read Rosie Revere, Engineer? We love it.
