Boston Children's Museum

Last week, I took Aubrey to the Boston Children's Museum and we had a blast. Goldie tagged along and made it that much more fun. :)

I was really skeptical of the train ride. Aubrey is NOT a fan of sitting in a parked stroller and I couldn't exactly let her run up & down the aisles.. but she did pretty well.

See? She isn't amused.

She loved the bubble room!

Climbing is what Aubreys do best!

The museum had a whole room dedicated to Arthur (you know, the little aardvark from when we were kiddos?).. though I think we enjoyed it more than she did.

Splashing in the water <3

Aubrey channeling her inner Isa.. (this is her favorite Dora episode)

Speaking of Dora, she managed to spot the only Dora toy in the museum gift shop.. a huge bubble wand! After seeing how excited she got seeing all of the bubbles in the bubble room, I couldn't say no to her excited face.

We had a wonderful time and I can't wait to take her back once the weather gets a little bit warmer.. because, as you can see, it was a bit chilly this time around!

10 steps

All mommas have been there. You get your kiddo a cute outfit, or want to remember a special day by taking a picture. You have an image in your head of how everything will turn out.. so you fight with your wee one to get the shirt over their head.. then trying to get the first leg into a pair of pants while the other is kicking. Then it's time for hair, especially for mommas with little girls. You get it just perfect in a little bow and sit them down. Then it starts... the 10 steps to taking a successful picture. In this case, I'd like to bring you... Valentine's Day.

Step 1: "Oh crap, wasn't expecting that!"

Step 2: "Maybe if I don't look, she'll stop"

Step 3: "Seriously mom, stop"

Step 4: "Ha-ha-ha HA ha! You can't get my picture!"

Step 5: "Will you just GIVE UP ALREADY?"

Step 6: "I don't care how cute you say I look. I won't do it!"

Step 7: "Oh look, a bow!"

Step 8: "Hahaha! You'll never get it back!"

Step 9: "Okay, okay.. I guess I'll put it back in"

Step 10: "Alright, mom, ONE picture if it means this is over!"
