Henry and Josie anticipate Maura’s arrival, as she brings @perpetual_puppy_airedale (AKA Scout) into the house on Saturday afternoon.
My Pandemic pup(pet) has entertained the grandchildren virtually but Saturday they got to meet him in real life. He’s got an Instagram account and I’ve photographed him and posted. Maura said to me -when I had him on Face Time – let me see him run around on the floor, show me both your hands! He’s the best kind of pup for me, zero maintenance.
Four of the Grandkids, their mom and two real Airedales and were here this weekend for a quick 24 hour visit. I had not seen them in 3 months.
My parents visited when we lived in Germany. I drove them to see Munich, Garmisch, Berchtesgaden and then onto Salzburg, Austria. It was a Bavarian Alps Road Trip. Here they are posing for me with their grandchildren Mark, Matthew and Laura. It was a happy time together.
Saturday morning we went to the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and the new Museumlab (for older kids) is in the adjacent First Free Library.
In the original part of the museum, Charlie (4) and Maura (10) had a wonderful time together in the BACKYARD section which was open since it’s summer. When they would swing, the Interactive Metal Sculpture made clanging tones and the Bubbling Mud was great fun.
You can drape a blanket over the back of a chair or two, add a pillow in the floor. Enter the tent you’ve created.
Magical half light.
Accompanied by a soft, huggable toy bear. Liftoff to space. A cabin in the woods. A racecar or castle. Whatever, wherever you wish it to be.
