Every morning, Allie asks me, "Where are we going today?" If it is not a school or activity day, I usually respond with, "Um, I don't know. You'll have to ask Grammy. She's the cruise director." Yeah, Allie does not like that answer.
We can tell that the girls are tired of being cooped up. The fighting and bickering over toys has reached an all time high. And they don't want to play in the snow. It has been very cold here and for the most part, the snow has been deep. The girls are small and it is hard for them to walk around in the yard. And I'll be honest. I don't want to play in the snow either.
I have even been limiting our family trips to the store. It is too cold and wet. I don't like being outside for a second longer than I have to be.
After another weekend day of being cooped up (which would have been perfectly fine with me if the girls had been happy), we decided to venture out to a children's museum. A smaller one located in a town, not a city. We had attended a birthday party at this particular children's museum about 18 months ago and the girls had enjoyed it.
They did have fun this time but Rich and I were disappointed. The museum seemed to be missing a lot of stuff and the exhibits were kind of blah in my opinion. For example, there was a cute little post office exhibit, which included a service counter with a scale and a drawer for money. There were also slots behind the counter to sort the mail and even a mail box for patrons to mail their items.
And one piece of play mail.
Yeah, so the girls spent about three minutes there.
They would kind of play around with stuff for a bit and then quickly lose interest and ask what was next. And I could see why that was happening.

Anna and Em playing with a magnet thing. I didn't realize until I viewed this picture that Anna should have been on the other side so that she could use her left hand.

So there was this rabbit thing there to promote some movie coming out next month. I have no idea what movie but the girls had some fun with the rabbit. Although, I was surprised that they were afraid of it considering how well they did in Disney.
Finally, Anna told me that she wanted a picture with the bunny. And she made Rich go with her. How cute is this?
