* If any of you have the opportunity to visit the Strong Museum of Play in my hometown of Rochester, NY, do it.  If you don’t love it, you have no inner child, and there is no hope left for you.

    He is SO adorable! There is no finer toy than a box, as proven by generations of children. If I ever get to Rochester I will definitely visit your children’s museum. And if you ever get to San Antonio, they have a fabulous children’s museum too, right downtown near the river walk. Well worth the visit.

    Oh, that sounds like a great place to go. Know where I like to go in that neighborhood? Relative neighborhood, at least? The Science Museum in Ithaca. It is fantastic. We stayed in the area a week and were there at least 4 times. They even have a toddler area with building materials, gears, gadgets, and a flowing duck pond. Sooo much fun!

    Love the box! We’re into ribbons and blocks right now, after a major box infatuation last week as the big ones kept arriving!

    HA! That’s awesome… of course, Mike says that Moose had to be the one that did it, because if YOU had done it, the cut lines would have been straight! :oD
