Fire engine and gear to dress in, boats and fishing poles, water play, shopping carts, a microphone for singing that was occupied by so many children!, school bus, ambulance, doctor's office, and more. This museum's 'toys' were scaled to the younger child than the Children's Museum in Columbia, SC. Vehicles and toys were mostly made of wood or plastic rather than metal, scale of things smaller, fewer -- the museum done with less money, but equal vision. Emily and Nick had a blast and all I can say is PawPaw and I returned home very very -- VERY tired! LOL
Still, and with a ton of internet problems as we still continue to search for any semblance of high speed and wind up knocking out the Internet with all our trials, I did manage to paint a couple of very quick apples -- trying and tryping to keep those reds pure against a possible green addition -- needed for apples -- but prone to make mud. I kept the leaves light (though they're darker in real life) to keep a 'lighter' feel to the piece.
Now it's off to work ... already ---!
