Fettuccine and hippos

Last Friday’s visit with Adam was our first in San Luis Obispo. I suggested the SLO Children’s Museum– neither one of us had ever been– and we absolutely loved it. Truth be told, Adam was a bit young to fully appreciate some of the exhibits [there is a preschool play area on the top floor that’s perfect for entertaining any wee ones not blinded by science], but who doesn’t enjoy three floors of cool stuff to touch and climb?! I’d highly recommend it for anyone with children 3+.

Of course the hurricane wind simulator caught Adam’s eye immediately. After I emerged unscathed from my test run, he agreed to come with me. All it took was one windy round as a pair– and he rode solo the next three times.

There aren’t too many places in this area where a child can be an astronaut, actor, and perform on stage with animals simultaneously.

If not for the excessively loud children that arrived shortly after him then he probably would have stayed up here most of the time.

He showed very little interest in the boats but was attempting to prolong our visit. I just really like this picture.

Somebody clearly inherited Mommy’s penchant for pasta. Our mutual favorite foods consist of noodles drenched in various sauces. When Adam requested fettuccine Alfredo for lunch, I knew nothing else would suffice. Mama’s Meatball satiated our craving. He inhaled the giant dish, graciously allowing me several bites while he was eating [and the tiny portion of boxed leftovers], and bragged that he could eat over a hundred bowls in one sitting.

Few things surpass the joy of encountering a faux hippopotamus on the back patio of a museum. With the exception of the live animal version at the Memphis Zoo, we’ve never stood face to face with Mommy’s favorite animal. Cue astounded ‘whoa!’ faces.

The sunglasses that launched 1000 emotions….

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
