31 Days {Day 27} : A Night at the Museum

If you were to ask my two year old where he wanted to go today . . . on any given day at any time he would answer with uninhibited enthusiasm, “The Museum!”  He means the Wenham Museum, and it is his favorite place to go and explore.

This month the museum hosted an evening of “mystery” at the museum at night.  I had many reasons for not going . . . including that he would be out when we would normally be putting him to bed, he is too little to appreciate it, it might be scary . . .

But with my mother’s urging, we embraced the adventure, and I am so glad we did.  He had such a wonderful time.

There was a treasure hunt all set up, that he started doing with us, but he liked playing in the circus room, so he played with his grandmother (and was photographed for the local paper)  . . .

While his papa and mama completed the treasure hunt . . .

Once we did find the answer to the treasure hunt, “Conductor,” Cole went to get the prize . . .

I was concerned about the candlelight tour  . . . but Cole was a champ

Our little zebra walked around the wooden boards of the Claflin-Richards House and listened to the tales of its past occupants . . .

It was a great and memorable night at the museum, and I am so grateful that I let go of the “shoulds” and went for a special evening with our little guy . . .
