Louisiana Children's Museum

We took the girls to the Louisiana Children's Museum in New Orleans. For dinner we met the other grandparents at a Baton Rouge Mexican restaurant, complete with a mariachi band.

Shoes make the outfit.

We've been coming to this museum for about 13 years.

This exhibit was fun for everyone…even the photographer.

The museum salutes the children and toys of Mexico.

Junior fire brigade

Entrance to the eye exhibit…full of optical illusions and puzzles.

Skeletons are very popular in Mexican art. This was an exhibit of Mexican toys.

The whole trip was worth it, if only to see Mr. Rogers' old sneakers.

A lot of doors to open. There was a slide behind S.

Somebody better like corn.

You can never have too many fresh vegetables.

Soon after this shot we got a second cart.

Stocking up on canned goods for the coming storm

Checking out. $438! That can't be right!

Look out Rachel Ray!

Waitress!

Everything's better with ketchup.

Very reasonable prices at the Kids' Cafe, but the food is a little chewy.

Soap bubble cylinder

Plasma ball demonstrates properties of inert gases like argon and krypton.

Kallie said this was a cool shot. Who am I to argue.

Not what I need–a mirror to make me look shorter and fatter.

Running off dinner

Big sister joins the race while little sister pauses for the camera.

Herb Alpert comes to Baton Rouge?

That is one big guitar!

Deep in thought

      Fun shots!
      I can't believe Mr. Rogers' shoes ended up in Louisiana!
      I wonder where his cardigans ended up? Hopefully spread about the country. I'd love to see some of his memoralbilia.

      The first shot made me laugh and remember a story about JR's daughter. When she was young she showed up ready for school. He said, "don't you think that outfit's a little gaudy?". She said, "yes, gaudy's good, I want gaudy." :-)
