Kids museum again!

The girls excitedly showed Halabuji and Halmoni all their favorite parts of the kids museum last week.  I got a kick out of the girls finding new things to try there, such as the sewing station which is Halmoni’s forte (for-tay spelling??) and the race car design that Komi tried with Halabuji.

New BBQ restaurant

We have been eagerly anticipating the opening of a new restaurant in town.  The suspense started months ago when an old pizza joint was razed, and a several weeks later we noticed white pipes sticking out of the ground.  We figured it was probably going to be a restaurant but couldn’t be sure until many many weeks later, we saw the final brickwork completed and shiny smokers out back.  The sign “BBQ coming soon” brought anticipation, too.  It opened nearly three weeks ago and we tried it out with Halmoni and Halabuji.  The food tasted yummy and the girls liked the outdoor seating area.

Paddle boats and more

We find ourselves at the train park again last week, but this time with Halmoni and Halabuji. There, we ran into some friends and ride the train and kiddie boat together. The paddle boats finally opened early afternoon and the girls paddled around the pond with their grandparents. Fun!

The beauty of play

We loved watching the kids play together, especially just running around and chasing a ball or each other. The kids also fished, flew kites, hunted easter eggs, played with trains, balls, musical instruments and just about anything else that children like to do.

Science museum

We found ourselves at the Science Museum one rainy morning.  The kids really liked the snakes, dinosaurs, fish, and especially the discovery room where they could play with dress up costumes, read books and explore the discovery boxes.

More excitement with more cousins

The girls’ grandparents, aunt and cousins came to visit last week.  They were so excited to play with their cousin.  Of course, the first order of business was to show him the train park since he loves trains.  IMG_5163 IMG_5166 IMG_5167 IMG_5173 IMG_5176 IMG_5180 IMG_5182 IMG_5184 IMG_5188 IMG_5197 IMG_5198 IMG_5206 IMG_5209 IMG_5211

 

Saturday’s fun

We started out early by joining in on the town’s egg hunt.  It was our first time and wow, the entire town showed up it seemed (I mean, even we were there!). The girls were excited to find eggs and candy, of course.  Afterward, Unni climbed the inflatable slide and whizzed down.  Then, we headed downtown to check out the Book Festival.  We heard a storyteller read a book, picked up loads of free goodies and drinks, and even took photos with real-live ballerinas. Dad worked all morning and afternoon, and Halabuji golfed.  Late afternoon, we all grabbed a picnic supper and ate by the lake.  The girls played in the sand, and of course Dad fished.  He caught a big ol’ catfish!
