A visit from Grandaddy William

William came over on Saturday and spent the day with us. We checked out the garden and then had a big blueberry pancake breakfast. He brought down his electric knife sharpener and worked on our knives. I love having sharp knives to work with. Then we all went to the State Museum. The girls love going there. They associate it with the children's museum because they can move around and look at all kinds of things. Some of it is hands on and some of it we just have to read to them. It's amazing how much they've learned from going so much (we probably go twice a month since it is free for homeschoolers.) The girls can tell you a little bit about most of the exhibits and they both know where things are located in the building. After being at the museum for almost 2 hours I started getting tired and hungry and no one wants to be around me when I get that way:) I think the rest of the family could have stayed a bit longer. William took us out to eat on the way home. We like a few of the mexican restaurants in town. One is locally owned and the other is a chain called Moe's. They both serve vegetarian beans and rice and can put whatever we want inside tacos and burritos. We had a great visit with grandaddy. It's so nice that we are close enough to do these kinds of things.
