But while he toils away, Ellie, Brendan and I had a lovely morning at the Museum of Science and Industry. Brendan loved the trains. Hell . . . I loved the trains. Ellie's favorite was the circus exhibit and she talked the whole way home about, "When Uncle Sam and Aunt Meg took me to the circus and Brendan wasn't invited . . . . blah, blah, blah."
The whole excursion was just pleasant from start to finish. I didn't bring a stroller so they were both on the loose -- but they stayed close to me and didn't have tantrums when it was time to leave. We sat together and ate our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and then we were off, big-eyed, to see more.
While visiting the "Main Street" exhibit, Ellie sauntered into the photo booth, grabbed the red hat and boa, and I couldn't say no to an over-priced, but-oh-so-cute picture. Here they are in their stage coach.
