Even then, a few hours in the car --even if that sounds like the last thing you want to do -- may be worth it for adventure's sake.
We recently took a trip to a local museum and had a grand old time. Here's a little of what we saw...
We also took a harbor tour while the grandparents were here, and while it was geared to the older crowd, the girls enjoyed the boat ride, esp. the on-board snackbar, and the chance to take some pictures on their own. Photographer in the making? Maybe.
I was especially impressed with this one:
We also went to see a battleship and a nautical museum, and I was shocked at how much the girls liked the museum. They really enjoyed seeing everything and asking lots of questions. S was upset when we left and headed to lunch -- she wanted to go back afterwards! And I thought we'd be lucky to make it through a few exhibits with them. Kids can surprise you sometimes!
