|The Fremont Troll!|
Quite a few people were there to visit and have their photo op. Thanks Brandon and Amanda for taking us to this unique spot! After this visit, we headed on over to another Seattle site!

Roy and I were glad to be able to share this activity with our grandbabies.....we cherish our time with them very much!

Just a few photos of me and Roy hanging out the Isabel and Rudy at the museum. We were kept quite busy during our visit there but enjoyed every minute of it. We sure do miss the Ramos Family and we are looking forward to our next visit. I think the next time, we will most likely visit the Childrens/ Museum in Wilmington. It's just a tad bit closer to their home.

What little boy doesn't love trains? And at the Children's Museum they were able to play to their heart's delight! I wish he had the space in his bedroom for a train table. We sent him a wooden train set but it would be great to have it set up all of the time. The layout I did here and the one before were a challenge I took on from the Creative Keepsake website. Using three 4x6 photos and what you have at home in your supplies......these two layouts were completed in less than an hour.
Here is Little Rudy riding on the Magic School Bus. It was a half-size bus and it gave the children the feeling they were riding on a real bus! You even had a ticket and could pretend that you were the driver and were taking everyone on a magical trip! I wonder where he was taking us!

Here is my very busy boy, Rudy, having a fantastic time exploring at the Childrens' Museum. So many activities that kept him so busy and the grown-ups tired from following Rudy and Isabel around. I'm glad that Brenna exposes her children to these types of outings. These day trips are the best for every family!

Brenna and Rudy are getting ready to sail away from the Children's Museum to lands unknown! There was even a lifeboat on this replica with life jackets included. This was quite a popular attraction in the museum. I think this would fit in Brenna's backyard. I think I will mention that she should put one back there!

Blowing bubbles was another "station" that Isabel visited before she moved on to the giant bubble! It is so amazing to see how much children enjoy the simple things like blowing bubbles, watching pinwheels spin in the wind and using their imaginations.

This was a very cool activity that you could do at home! A little tub, soapy water and a hula hoop and you can become a Bubble Girl or Boy! Isabel had fun just making sure the bubble surrounded her. It did take a couple of tries because the bubbles weren't cooperating. A simple activity that can provide quite a bit of fun!

Here is Isabel at the Children's Museum. The mural was painted on a wall outside of the museum. She and I were waiting for the others to meet us there so that we could head on to our next adventure. You can see in her hand that she is holding the pinwheel we bought; she loved watching it spin! While we were in the museum, she was also quite busy with her activities. Here is Papa seeing how tall his baby girl is! And what a big girl she has become!

There was literally so much for the children to do at the museum. Here is Little Rudy playing with the largest Light Brite I have ever seen! He also had a blast trying out the "just my size" dental chair and the car was actually half of a VW Bug / stick shift! I just kept following him all around with my camera. This is when I decided I need a camera that takes multiple shots in less than 15-seconds! Is there one like that?

Rudy loved exploring at the museum. You had to keep moving just to keep up with him! He loved all the freedom to touch and explore. Truly another great experience for Rudy and Papa! I'm glad that Roy was there too because there would be no way I could have been taking the photos and then following our grandchildren.

What a fun time everyone had at the Children's Museum in Myrtle Beach! Quite a few things to see and touch! Even a dinosaur lesson for Isabel! I will be sharing more layouts showing the little ones enjoying their experience. The size of the museum made it easy for all the children to have fun. There weren't long lines or pushy parents there! If you find yourself in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with young children, head on over to CMSC and watch them discover fun!

These cotton fields were just around the corner from Brenna's home. I took these photos while we were driving past them. It was a grand sight. The fields were huge and I think the cotton was ready for picking. It sure is a different landscape for the Ramos Family! I'm sure they are glad that the ocean is not that far from them too.

One of our evening meals found us at the local Mexican restaurant. It really isn't that far from Brenna and Rudy's home! So, here we are eating the usual Mexican fare and what does Isabel eat? That's right....macaroni and cheese! Though she did enjoy the churro. Look at the picture of Brenna and Rudy; doesn't it look like she either is wearing large hair rollers but it was just a "lucky" shot! Sometimes, I am pretty clever! It was a great evening and actually not bad Mexican food for North Carolina!

Isabel found that the boardwalk was the best place to go for a walk with her pinwheel! The wind was blowing and the pinwheel was spinning frantically! It was a pleasure to see her enjoying such a simple thing with a simple toy! These are the moments I live for and enjoy; spending time with my grandchildren is the best thing in the entire world! Looking forward to summer 2011 with all three of them!

October 2010, we were so lucky to be visiting our family in North Carolina! We took a trip down to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and spent a few days there. Here we are on the boardwalk! Brenna, Little Rudy, Isabel and me! I love how the beaches look on the East Coast; the grass growing through the sand. There was a restaurant on the boardwalk that was offering a great deal on Long Island Ice Teas! I suggested that they leave me there and pick me up later! But, we headed on to other shopping adventures this day! I think going to the Carolinas in October is the best! The weather was perfect.
