Jacob's field trip

Yesterday I got to go on Jacob's first field trip with him!
(Thank you, Mrs. Linda for keeping the littles)

We went here:

This is our local children's museum. Can you see my little
man in the shadows up there?? I wanted him to stand on
the top, but that black metal rail completely covered his face.

They have lots of exhibits, some are large areas designed for
imaginitive play, some are areas for learning, and our guide told the
kids they could touch anything they could reach.

And they did! They had a blast!!

'All aboard the choo-choo train, all aboard, all aboard!

*this is the song from Choo-choo Soul, if you don't
watch The Disney Channel.

Hey, Skipper, where's Gilligan?


Time for a spot of tea.

This was a giant climbing apparatus that went from floor
to ceiling through the middle of the building.
(yeah, well, saying 'apparatus' sounds better
than saying 'thingy')
Jacob loved it!!

After our time inside, we went out to the picnic area and
ate our sack lunches. Strangely I don't have any pictures
of this. Maybe I just didn't want any evidence of me
stuffing my face like a hog eating. :)

Jacob's class (most of them)

Silly face!!

I wish this picture had come out better. I think my camera
focused on the tree instead of Jacob. I suppose it is the bigger
object in the shot!

Notice the boo-boo on Jacob's chin that isn't in the rest of the
pictures. He fell outside and managed to skin his chin and
the insides of his elbows. I still haven't figured out how he
did that!

Other than the fall, it was a wonderful day. I love that I got to
spend the day with just Jacob. We don't get time alone too often.
He's a wonderful, sweet boy, and I adore him!

Thank you, Jacob, for letting me tag along!

You got some great pictures! I have been too lazy to do anything other than just look at mine on my camera! Jacob looks so cute by that tree...even if your camera didn't focus on him!!

Poor little chinny chin chin. Glad it was a fun time. Looks like a cool museum. My kids love children's museums.

Awe!! That is great! He is going to remember that forever! And you are right individual times with each kid is not easy when you have 5. Your pictures were great! Jacob is so cute! I think he looks like you in that shot by the tree. :)

That children's museum looks so much better than the one in our town. Glad you got to go- looks like a good time was had by all.

Oh, how fun! I'm so glad you got to go... for you AND for him! You know that meant the world to him.

That's a LOT of little kiddos!
