Our FREE Custom House Museum Visit~

I had some FREE Museum passes given to us by a local pediatric
dentist here in town and I noticed that today they expired!
Oh No!
So we stopped by the museum in a non-planned fashion on
our way home from visiting our Nanny's house.
They posed outside the historic downtown museum infront of
these cool painted fish along the sidewalk~

The flowers were gorgeous outside the museum
so my even more gorgeous Baby-Girl posed near them~
They have a museum mascot named, Tiggy!
Hayden loved looking at the big lizard~
Tiggy was really interested in looking at us too!
Hayden donated money to the "TIGGY NEW DIGS"
fund raise funds for a new home for Tiggy.
Watching the of their favorite things to do here~
I'm not sure how new this 'FAIR' model is but it was pretty neat.
'Lyza liked pressing the button to make the ferris wheel move and light up~
The Grocery Store in the Kids explorer area~
'Lyza opened the Fridge door below and said...
Hmmm what is for dinner?!
(That is soo me! I chuckled)
Hayden buying his grocerys...
Do you have enough money sir to cover all that?! ;-)
'Lyza buying some milk~
While 'Lyza kept shopping and buying new things with new
shopping carts in the grocery store,
Hayden played with this wooden train table~

An Old Covered Wagon...
The Porsche of the Pioneer Days~
Jeff Purvis's racecar in the museum~
One of the exhibits was called "Gone Fishing"
It was neat they had old fishing lures and poles.
They had a wall with different fish and descriptions that Hayden and myself
learned only made me hungry for some catfish though! ha
They had an area where you could sit and listen to someone telling fishing tales~
Hayden rocked for a bit there~
We can't wait to go back when they finalize the BUBBLE CAVE!
It sounds like its going to be interesting for the kiddos~

We will have to check back online for their
