Mitchell Museum

 This last Saturday Baby G and I went to the Mitchell Museum where they were having events for kids.  We met up with some friends and right away went to stand in line to ride the train.

We had no idea that the wait would be an hour.
But Baby G handled it like a trooper.
 Here are Baby G's friends that we were hanging with for the day.
We finally made it to the front of the line and were ready for our turn on the train.
Baby G waited as patiently as he could for his turn.
 Finally found our seats on the train....
And Baby G started in on yelling out, "Choo Choo"....and " All Aboard"  and " This is the Polar Express." 
We had a blast!!!
 They gave us a paper filled with things to look for.....Baby G was studying hard.

Baby G started off telling me all the animals he was gonna look for.  Apparently he thought cows and ducks lived at the Mitchell Museum. 
Sticking his tongue out taking in all the sites.
After the train ride we went into the museum and the kids each made a book and then we headed outside to fly kites.  Baby G was watching and learning.
Watching his friend fly the kite.

Then it was Baby G's turn.  I wasn't sure how he would do.  There wasn't much wind so he was gonna have to run pretty fast in order to get the kite up in the air, but he did a great job. You can see on his way back he stops to tell the lil girl that was with us to look up at the kite he was flying....which, of course, made the kite fall straight to the ground.  That's what he gets for trying to show off for a girl.
 Nothing like climbing on a lil art before we go.
We had a blast at the Mitchell Museum and look forward to the events next year.
