Hah, it rhymes. This morning we met Grandma at the Littleton museum. Her home had set up an outing there and it’s very near our house, so I told her we’d meet her there. We took her to see the exhibits, then went outside to see the animals. It was such a gorgeous day, though I don’t know how much longer the kids can endure 65 degrees and no snow in sight.
We saw the donkeys, ram, sheep and cow and then went to the pier over the pond. Grandma thought it was weird that the pond was still frozen even though we’ve had 60 degree days for quite awhile.
We took her over to the blacksmith shop and watched him create an iron rose, Bethany got to help with the bellows.
Everyone in Grandma’s group got tired from walking (she was in a wheelchair) so they headed back to the bus. We got in a last picture and then wheeled her back to go back to Parker.
We stayed for a bit, the girls played in the kitchen, Bethany worked on a sketch and I went out to take some pictures. I love this old cottonwood tree, I’m also glad it’s not in my backyard (they love water…)
It used to have a sibling, but it got cut down at some point.
Here is a shot of the front room in the 1890 house.
We went to Cafe’ 180 for lunch, gosh they are good. We had meatball sandwiches, a turkey wrap, Mediterranean salad, and potato soup.
Then we went over to Solid Grounds to do some school.
Grace was reading about Thomas Edison, Hannah was reading about Arctic animals, Bethany was reading Anne Frank, we did some other school too. Since we were right next door we went over to the MOA. It’s still the faux show exhibit, but the girls didn’t care.
We picked up some postcards for Grandma and walked around the museum.
Finally, we ran by our library and then picked up a friend for a play date.
It was a fun day, tomorrow is just as busy: NIA, Fox theater, RAFT, ice skating and dropping Joel at CU med lecture…..well, maybe a little busier.
