Road Trip Volume 2

double double toil and trouble
We've been teaching the May Queen some magic potions on this road trip. OK, she's really learning about clouds at this GREAT science museum (The Museum of Life and Science) in Raleigh, NC that my Aunt and Uncle took us to. We spent nearly 6 hours there, and could have spent more. It was very hands on, and very diverse. We've been having a great time here. The May Queen adored my cousins (high school aged), and they were excellent at entertaining her (Uno, Wii, coloring, a secret clubhouse, playing with the dogs...). Getting here we were able to bring The May Queen into two new states.

It also just so happens that a friend of mine from high school JUST MOVED HERE (the moving van was arriving TODAY) so last night we were able to go out for drinks and catch up, which was a lovely addition to the trip.

Tomorrow we have another long day of driving to bring us to Philly, but fortunately The May Queen has been a stoic little traveler. And I still have a bag of tricks.

I'm so envious!!! All we have here is an old oil and gas museum. *sniff*

Ok, I generally only lurk on your blog, but since you're practically next door to me at the moment (I'm in Raleigh!) I had to say hello! And that museum looks so cool. I have not made it over to it yet. It's actually in Durham...not Raleigh....

I hope the rest of the road trip continues so well!

I was about to say my sister lives there, but she commented before me, the quick one.

I love the state signs. What a great idea for a photo.

Safe driving!

So much fun! It's always wonderful to see kids experience new places. Growing times.

Finally catching up....

WOW! What fun!

Road trips can be great fun. Or not. But MQ looks like she's up for the adventure.

Glad you are keeping us posted. :)

one easy turn and you could come here (well, a turn and a lot of swimming...).
What a great summer of fun memories for your little cloud walker!

I had three sons and not one of them was a stoic little traveler. Where did I go wrong? Safe travels...

You girls seem to be having a lot of fun (including the big guy?). This really increases the looking forward to my own trip in a few days. Go on enjoying!
