All week, Little Bear has been asking, “Mama, go space?” If I ask him a follow up question, or don’t respond immediately (because, say, I’m already in the middle of a sentence), he follows up with, “Mama, Goddard?”
Cracks. me. up.
My two year old is asking to go to the Goddard Space Flight Center Visitor’s Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. It’s a great little place, with lots to investigate for the older kids and a dress up area and space capsule for the younger kids. We often go there with our playgroup, and have lunch in the rocket park afterwards.
Being able to go to so many museums, and get out of it what we need to for that day, is one of the wonderful things about living in D.C. We are taking advantage of every minute of it.
Edited to add: You have GOT to go see Stimey’s post about the day. She is freakin’ hilarious, and she recaps the day for all of us … and Commander Blue Bear. The 6 moms and 8 kids (including Heather) had a fantabulous day, and the sky was just as blue as it appears in the pictures. Truly, truly, these are the good days.
Jessica’s got a great line up of Earth Day activities today, if you’re local to the Washington, D.C. area … there’s also a special Sid the Science Kid on today, and lots of other things to do to celebrate the Earth. What will we be doing? Getting out into the garden again, preparing the soil, and planting our vegetables for the summer. Mmmmm. I’ve been looking forward to planting in the garden with both my children for more years than I’d like to say. Oh, okay. Forever.
