A Dog's Best Friend


Kylie hasn't stopped talking about Radar, the weather dog, whom she met at The Weather Museum. I was sure this was going to be over my 2-year-old's head but was pleasantly surprised that she was engaged in plenty... even besides the dog that appears on KPRC. The dog makes a special appearance at this museum on Tuesdays.
The Weather Museum at 5104 Caroline allows weather enthusiasts of all ages to learn about different types of weather conditions from tornados to ice storms. View satellite and radar images of hurricanes that have affected the Gulf Coast including Hurricanes Katrina & Rita. Deliver your weather forecast using real studio equipment. For younger audiences, there's a coloring area with weather-related coloring books. Little K was curious about the mock tornado, which she could touch. This is a small museum but a good outing when the weather is hot but you want to get out of the house.
Until the next nap time...

When did she get so big??? I see her 3 times a week and she was NOT that much of a big girl on Monday - no way. And I KNOW that C is not that grown up - nope, nope, nope, nope and you can't convince me otherwise. LA LA LA LA LA I can't hear you!!!!!!!!

And we so need to check that museum out - Bill is a complete Weather Geek - he'll love it!

It's pretty cool & doesn't require a lot of time. Your 9 year old niece would like it, too.

Also, try the Nature Discovery Center in Bellaire. My 6 & 9 year old nephews LOVE it and so does Kylie. Plus, it's free.

If you go to the Downtown Aquarium, I suggest not going for lunch or dinner because it's expensive but it would be fun in the morning.

Or try some of the outdoor activities on the bayou near Allen Parkway. If I can talk Trent into this on Friday or Saturday night, you might see us there. See http://www.buffalobayou.org/eventsrec.html for details.
