It snowed pretty much all day Thursday and Friday. The freshly fallen snow is really pretty, and it looks like somebody sprinkled confectioners sugar all over everything. But, we're kind of stuck inside while it's snowing, and all the pretty white stuff quickly turns into icky brown stuff. There are little (and big) Snow Dirt Mountains everywhere, and you have walk through cold brown slush until it melts enough to wash away. Ew. Lucy had a good snow day, though. We made a huge mess "cooking" in her kitchen with flour and oatmeal, and we went out in the snow for a little while. She's not very impressed by the snow, I think mostly because she struggles to walk in it. Here's a view of our snow-covered house. We live on the first floor.
Sunday, we took Lucy to the Boston Children's Museum. It was wonderful! We took the subway train (the T) into the city, which Lucy thought was pretty exciting. We stayed at the museum for about 2 hours. They had pretend play stations, water and sand stations, and lots of science stuff, like simple machines and giant bubble makers. There is also a lunch area, so we were able to take a break and eat and then go play some more. We bought an annual membership, so we can go back any time we want and not pay admission. Also, when our nieces and nephews come to visit, we can get a discount on their admission. Hint, hint.
Lucy and I have also been going to the Cambridge Library. They have story times and other kids' programming, and the entire second floor of the library is dedicated to Children's books, games, and computers. It is so wonderful. Also, we can walk there in 10-15 minutes, which is even more wonderful. We can also walk to a really great local toy store that hosts some children's programs like sing-along time. It's near The Biscuit, where I like to get lunch and pastries. So, who wants to come visit?
