Today's Play

There are a thousand ways I love to play with my children.  Sometimes Out, sometimes gallivanting, sometimes in nature, sometimes super sparkly, and sometimes it's on a table.
Yesterday was at the museum.

First to lunch,

then to a shop for long pants and sleeves for the babies,

then to the NHMU.

I so love this museum.  While it was being built, I had anxiety over it, as my expectations were of something similar to the AMNH, and I knew that was totally unrealistic, and I was bound to be disappointed.
And then the first time I walked in, at the grand opening (November of last year), I almost cried.  :)  (Silly, I know, but there you have it.)

It's a state museum, and so not inclusive of the entire U.S., but still, it's a very fine museum.  Add this one to Salt Lake's several other facilities, and you have a pretty terrific playground, and a confident (and feeling blessed) unschooling mama.

Towards home and choosing pumpkins for jack o'lanterns,
a yummy supper,
and ziplines with pumpkin trick-or-treat buckets.

Life is good.
