I was seriously struck by a case of wanderlust this morning... or at least with a ravenous appetite for Explore.
I remembered that there was a Mad Science program at the library - this one about simple inventions that have greatly contributed to space travel - and I thought it'd been a long time since we saw a outer-realm film at the planetarium... so there you go. A plan.
Downtown we can also beg a free meal at their daddy's restaurant, so we decided upon that, too.
And how about a little letter-boxing? Bowling?
So off! we went.
Turned out that we had the time wrong for the science program, was early this afternoon, not late morning.
We'll just go to the Planetarium first....
for Explore and Ultimate Universe.
and then to lunch.
Alas!, we were too late to be on time for the library program... but it's not too big of a deal as it comes to our neighborhood library in about three weeks.
So... wanna go bowling?
If you sign up at the neighborhood kid's alley, children get a free game all summer. Not a bad deal, certainly.
We had checked in at home before bowling to get details and our stamps for a letter-boxing treasure at the local historic farm... the children knew right where we'd find it from the description... we know the farm pretty well.
But, alas again, things (buildings) had been moved, and the stash just wasn't there.
But never you mind; we aren't discouraged.
A lovely late afternoon at the farm,
and a fine time milking the cow, also.
Soon the babes were ready for Home,
but not before stopping on the way for a icecream sundae.
The good thing about a day of Unusual, as you know, is that ideas seem to us come upon wings... inspiring and sweeping us up.
Thus, a treasure box.
With a hunt, naturally.
An' Maddie's talking about Camp for her and Trevy in the backyard.
Here's to the good stuff.
