MOCHA party

This weekend we took BART into Oakland, where the Museum of Children's Art was having a birthday party.

We decided to eat in Chinatown before the party. So good. I wish I'd taken pictures of the food.

There were many stations set up for the kids to make different things or play games. Our kids really just preferred the toddler area, where there were bubbles, sand, and water stations. Ashlyn did get her face painted, which you can see here. She wanted to be a rhinoceros, and the lady was kind of at a loss. Ashlyn was pleased, but next time I will encourage something simpler. They did some cute stuff with cats and butterflies and such.



The balloons we took home were by far the highlight of their day, though.


Christopher was not content to just have the ribbon in his hand, he wanted to hold the balloon.

How fun! Portland has a great children's museum that we enjoyed while visiting grandparents a few years ago. I can't wait to be close to something like that again. I'm sure the kids had a blast!

Next time you visit us we'll have to take a trip to the Little Rock children's museum. We haven't been yet but I heard it's great.

I love how much you guys get out and do things. I feel so stuck in a rut here. We are going to attempt to go to Pioneer Park for the first time this spring/breakup today. I am assuming it will be a sloshy mess but hopefully it won't be too bad. Definitely no children's museums here, so the park will have to do.
