Mayborn Museum

Saturday morning before Mom, Dad, and Abby headed back to Alabama, we took Abby and Hallie to The Mayborn Museum on Baylor's campus. We had never been, but had heard great things about it. It was a fantastic museum for all ages! Abby and Hallie really enjoyed all the hands-on activities the museum provided, and the adults enjoyed watching them play! There was also a natural history section to the museum that Jonathan and Dad visited while the girls went to the gift shop--we were ready for lunch by this point! HA! We did walk through the cave portion of the natural history and that was pretty interesting. I didn't get any pictures of it, though. After the museum, we ate lunch at Cracker Barrel, made a stop by Sam's for everyone's essentials and then said our good-byes in the parking lot. I was pretty sad because both Abby and Hallie were asleep, but just as Mom and Dad were backing out of their parking space, Hallie woke up! So they pulled back in and got to say good-bye. We were sad to see them go, but can't wait for their next visit. Mom says they're definitely flying next time! :o)

Thanks for visiting us, Nonna and Pop! We enjoyed having ya'll here so much and miss you like crazy! Kelly and Jessica, thanks for letting Abby come! She and Hallie had a ball! We miss her and can't believe how big she is getting! She is so precious!

Hallie was very interested in this iguana, but would
not go near it without someone closeby.

Abby and Hallie loved this transportation portion
of the museum! There was a firetruck, too! Hallie
climbed right up into the school bus and began
driving! Too cute!

This was Mrs. Moen's Neighborhood. There were
little streets and shops--it was like a little town.
There were all these little cars and a ton of kids
in there, so I didn't get many pictures.
Hallie is definitely a good cop! :o)

Hallie's favorite spot--the bubbles. Or
"bubaaaahs" (whispered softly) as Hallie
calls them!

I think this was everyone's favorite! A giant piano!

My mom and dad--Nonna and Pop!

The girls were asleep at this point of our good-byes.
