We thought it was appropriate to start off our President's Day Weekend with a trip to the McKinley Museum. Becoming a member of a local museum is one of the best gifts you can give children. We can pop into the museum anytime we like and I don't feel obligated to hit every exhibit. In fact, we usually focus on one section of the museum each time we visit. Plus, look how beautiful the McKinley Monument is. Every time we visit we must explore and climb all those steps! This time was a little interesting because Jess insisted on climbing by herself and the boys decided to run rampant. Oh, and the dog was in the car going crazy because we were having a showing at our house. But, we had fun. That's all that matters!

Do you have a favorite museum you like to visit?

Do you like my sad attempt at a self portrait with the kids? It was a bit challenging on the steps and a bit windy. Perhaps a skirt was not the best choice for chasing a one year old!

Hope you enjoyed your weekend
xoxo

  2. We are a member of the royal palaces--yes we are that cool! And initally we did it because it was cheaper but now I love it as we can just decide on a whim to go to one and see their beautiful gardens and learn some history--it's a win win!

  3. I love that museum! I try to make it out there every once and awhile, just to support them. Plus, occasionally... if I'm feeling energetic, I like to exercise on those steps. :)

    What a fun, educational and athletic weekend you guys had! I'm a little jealous! :)

  5. I love all your photos! What a great way to spend President's Day. Much better than my lame attempt to explain to my 4 year old why she didn't have school today. Me: "So you know how there's the president?" Her: "No. What's a president?" She was unimpressed with my answer so we made pretty felted rocks and dug in the garden. :)
