Boston Children’s Museum

our first place to visit….the children’s museum!

we love this place! we probably picked the busiest day being the Saturday of Feb. vacation but that didn’t stop us from spending almost 5 hours there….what fun!

i am going to warn you…..there are lots of pictures in this post!

mi the climbing structure is amazing…..it was the first thing they went to, the last thing they went on and many times in between.

mj

a note on the wall says its better when its crowded because it teaches kids how to negotiate….there were a gazillion kids in there! Rob was contemplating how to build one of course. Over 3 stories high the climbing exhibit was amazing! (i said that already!) Cooper is always tentative going in at first but Caroline takes care of him the whole time making sure he doesn’t get scared….i love that!

mk

cooper’s favorite is the bobcat.

Caroline took part in a research project for the Children’s hospital…brain research!!!  she was just happy to work on the laptop and get a sticker!

mg mhthere was a whole Arthur exhibit…i took 2 dozen pictures of but this was the cutest…its actually a picture of the TV that showed them on the show with the characters…dancing to the Arthur song.   

ml

they have a number of shows planned for the day….can you tell they couldn’t wait…no peeking!

mm

Cooper was picked to participate….i don’t think he knew what he was getting in to when he was raising his hand but he went up on stage.

mn

threw the dice like the man with the crazy pants told him to….and then ran off stage! he was done!

mo

making big bubbles!!

I had fun choosing this particular painting online that now hangs in my downtown office, from Wahooart.com, who sells canvas prints of art masterpieces. While the original is treasured in some art museum in England, my print http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/Opra/BRUE-8LHS4U, of this painting by Edward Burne-Jones is very much appreciated by my staff and clients. The print quality is really excellent.
