Last Museum Pics

There is a beautiful train section at the museum. It is a beautifully restored coach car on which Bradford and Anne love to climb.

This is the actual ship's bell from the USS Oklahoma, sunk during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. There is a beautiful area devoted to the Navy and the USS Oklahoma. It is very useful as I teach Bradford about the United States Navy.

There is a wonderful play area for the kids at the Science Museum. They both love the seesaw. Great fun for them and for me as I watch them.

This is a blue screen which simulates the way meteorologists forecast the weather on television. When Bradford saw himself on the monitor, he began to forecast the weather just like the weatherman! He is a natural in front of the camera. Other adults who were watching him do this remarked that he was a future public speaker. You never know!

My favorite pose as Bradford forecasts the weather!

Brad the Pilot

OK Science Museum

We have found a wonderful museum in Oklahoma City, OK - the Science Museum of Oklahoma. It is second to none among those we have seen. Having lived in DC, we think that this place actually rivals some we have seen in the nation's capitol. Bradford is fascinated with becoming an astronaut. Here he is preparing for his uniform.
We miss Nathan and Leah Finn terribly. Our children do as well. Here is Anne picking up the phone and talking. She asked for "Georgia." Georgia Finn is Nathan and Leah's daughter. We really miss them and our friends in North Carolina.
Bradford loves tractors. He loves to climb up and drive the tractor every time we visit the museum. He always tells me that "Papa Frank" let's him drive the tractor in Louisiana.
Bradford loves this little spin machine at the museum. He will spin himself until he becomes quite dizzy.
And not to be outdone - Anne gets into the action!

The kids start ballet next Monday, and they are so excited!

This is Anne in her I'm-pretending-to-look-mad-but-I'm-going-to-laugh-in-two-seconds pose.

Dance, Ballerina, Dance!


Bradford's here in his ballet outfit. I don't know why he makes this face every time I take a picture!

Take a Picture!

Bradford wanted me to take a picture of him doing his thumbs up.

Then Anne had to get in on the action, of course.
