Last Tuesday we met Ms P and Mr M at the Newport Aquarium. DSIL drove them down to meet us. It rained on us all the way up. But cleared while we were at the aquarium - yeah!
I love the kid's exhibit this year. A fishing boat complete with magnetic fishing poles; rubber fish with keyrings to attract the magnets; a store to sell and buy fish at - very busy!! We had a great time AND wore them out - they were asleep within 30 minutes of heading home! I would have gotten a photo of Miss P but my phone camera makes a clicking sound and DH threatened me if I woke them up!! Imagine!!
Wednesday was just pretty much just fun around the cul de sac. Thursday we headed to the Portland Zoo along with a bizillion other Portlanders! Mr M was dressed in an orange t-shirt. Seems like a perfect shirt to keep an eye on a 4 yr old in. HA! There were groups and groups of kids in exactly the same orange shirt! Well laid plans gone awry!
We stayed for the live bird show - very cool!! When we got to the giraffe enclosure Miss P exclaimed, "Look Nana, giraffes and cantaloupes!!" That's my girl!! Enthusiastic, even if slightly wrong!! Not by much, because they were antelopes, of course. Too cute though!!
