I took Friday off of work and long ago decided to spend it with my godson to celebrate his birthday. I decided a couple of months ago that the kid really doesn't need anything, but I want him to know that we have a special relationship. So, I floated the idea of doing something special with him to his mom who suggested the Noah's Ark exhibit at the Skirball museum. This is a giant interactive exhibit made for the toddler to preschool age set. The kids can touch and play with everything. Genius
Kyle delighted in ringing the bell that was supposed to be the dear's heart.
He looked on in awe as he made it rain by pumping an old style water pump.
He filled the arc two by two with little animals and was so proud of the progress.
He climbed on the camels guarding the way into the pantry.
Then we go to the piece de resistance- the climbing area. Up and down and around he went.
On the way out he counted all of the snails in the garden, and I had to fight the fact that I am my mother's daughter and my first impulse is to squash the snails. When we finally left, he was so tired that he could hardly focus but very happy. A successful adventure I would say.
