When pigs fly...and other scientific stuff like that

My Best Shot for this past Monday, was a shot taken at Jo's after we hung with pals at the Austin Children's Museum...what's super cool is that we went on No Tour Tuesday....no bus loads of kids running round :) well, here's more about the day:

They had a whole huge transportation thing going that Mia just LOVED...she drove a train or was it a bus? and tested out which surface was faster. Mia was not one to be close to friends that morning..she was a girl on the MOVE. We went upstairs where she used a pulley system to make a pig fly and then hooked up some cool Tinkertoy style shapes. They have an art room that Mia also took advantage of :)

Then we heard over the speaker...'Storytiiiiime' We made a mad dash downstairs and got pretty good seats. Oh my, was the storyteller fabulous. They sang songs with a duck puppet, listened to the storyteller tell three stories with much enthusiasm...and then got stickers! Super fun!

We finally hooked up with our pals and headed off to Jo's for a yummy lunch. No Tour Tuesday happens on the first Tuesday of each month...we've got it on our calendar!

Childrens museums are so cool! I have been meaning to bring Ella back since winter started. It looks like she got her hands on everything there! I love her eyes in the 6th shot.
