Claire laughed for the first time this week. We were a funny little bunch, all crowded around the baby trying to get her to giggle some more. She is the superstar in this house and every little new thing she does is met with ooo's and awe's and calling the rest of the family to come see what she is doing.
I love her cooing face.
We also had a fun field trip to the Mercer Museum in Doylstown this week. The kids participated in 3 different programs about colonial life in Bucks county and also got to play in the fun folk toys exhibit that they currently have there in the new addition to the building.
The museum, with the exception of the addition, is built entirely of concrete because Henry Mercer did not want to risk having the building burn down and losing his gigantic collection.
I didn't get a lot of good pictures because the lighting was so poor (don't they think of photographers when they plan lighting?) and because I was carrying Claire and all the stuff. I wish I had though because the eccentric Henry Mercer had quite a massive collection of very interesting artifacts. The kids had fun running around the narrow passages and winding stairways of the museum.
In other news, Asher turned 4 this week. Yes he has the same shirt on and yes we were at the museum on his birthday, because that's how we roll.
He was very excited to be turning 4 for two reasons. One, because he could start a new school book for 4-year-olds and two, because 4-year-olds run faster than 3-year-olds. Now he is saying that he can't wait until he is 5 so he can run even faster!
