a few weeks back, C and I headed out with my MIL, SIL, and niece to a local museum, the Pink Palace. I grew up visiting this museum on school field trips and such. It was once a house (why you would ever sell this baby, I can't comprehend) and then was turned into a museum. It's filled with local history, children on field trips, Elvis memorabilia, traveling exhibits, and my personal favorite- an IMAX screen. Who doesn't want to watch sharks on a screen twelve times the size of most screens? pass the popcorn puhleazz! Thanks to their genius marketing scheme, we toured this baby for free. I would love to say that C had a grand time and he took in everything like a baby Einstein. But, I'd be lying. He thought the dinos were scary, the stuffed animals were lame, and frankly just preferred to snack on veggie straws the whole time. There was one exhibit he found delight in. And by exhibit I mean the railing of an exhibit that he could pull up on. Thrilling stuff that rail. C and I both greatly enjoyed a day of exploring especially since his Mudgy, aunt, and cuz were tagging along. To say he loves them, would be an understatement. Pretty sure he thinks his Sydney hung the moon:) The free membership ends with the summer. We managed to visit just before the deadline. So in a way, this was a farewell to summer, a good bye party, a very reluctant good bye. Summer and Pink Palace, you were good to us.
^^and can we just end on discussing the logos and branding of the old days. They make me giddy and happy and want to eat Quaker Oats and animals crackers for every meal. Do ya hear that food/marketing companies? The key to win my consumption is a good logo.
