Children's Museum

Sam's professor gave us a family membership to the Children's Museum of Houston that lasts a year! I took Talmage and he loved it. It didn't matter a bit that the activities were way beyond his level (until we got to the "Tot Spot," that is). He just loved running around exploring everything and being able to grab pretty much whatever he wanted without me stopping him.
His hair always wants to poke straight out on the left side and lay straight forward in the front. It always works its way out of the neatly combed style it begins with.

He befriended this old man who was reading kids' books in one of the many book nooks. Isn't this picture adorable?
Playing with the matching game
He loved finding the pictures.
I think this one looks like a painting.
They had different nooks that were set up like Christmas scenes from various countries.
The fun, fake food fooled Talmage. (Try saying that five times fast!)
Making animal footprints
He thought this pigeon was hilarious. He chased it all around, much to the pigeon's chagrin.
The water section was a huge hit!
He got pretty well drenched, thanks to the water he was playing in and the water that shot through the air and sprayed everyone!
I finally discovered the "Tot Spot," where the activities were a little more age appropriate. It was very sanitary, too! Adults had to wear little booties, and the babies had to take their shoes off. Any toy that got chewed on had to go into one of the many "dirty toy bags" that were hanging on the wall throughout the room.

Our new plan? Go with Sam to the Medical Center each Saturday and go play at the museum while he does his lab work!

  3. We LOVE the Children's Museum. Our family has a pass to the Zoo for a year that I won from a radio show. We should get together sometime during the week and do both with the boys!!

  5. It's great to see our young scientist/
    engineer/builder Talmage at work. Thanks for the great Huebner video, too! I saw a play at BYU about him in mid 1970s and I've always been fascinated by Huebner's tremendous courage.

    Love,
    Grandpa Brady
