While visiting family in New Jersey last week, we spent a couple of days learning while playing and exploring at different museums. See that? No skipped school days. A week away from home and still lots of learning opportunities. [Win.]
Now that I've reviewed the many pictures I took at the museum, I realize I only have a couple with Nana and her grand kids. I think that's because she was always busy taking pictures, too! With only a few visits each year with her grand kids she wants to capture picture memories to last her until the next visit.
Mid-way through the week we joined my sis-in-law, and two of her kids, for a morning at the Garden State Discovery Center. Since she was spending Thanksgiving with her extended family it was a special to have a few hours with her during our visit. The kids played and pretended and explored while we had a chance to catch up on life in between excited "Hey Mom! Come look!" interruptions.
And I'd do it all over again next week if I could.
