Our kids from Oregon were here over Christmas week. We spent most of one day in  the Imagine Children’s Museum in Everett, Washington.

Much of the time our older granddaughter was the concierge at the restaurant. She would invite people in, help them find a seat and take their order. We agreeably went in, but the service was terrible and the food tasted like hard plastic. None of the chefs seemed to be coordinated.

So we moved on. But she stayed, interacting happily with strangers as they came in.

Later, when it was time for an afternoon snack, we all went down to the basement where there were real tables and real chairs and ate the snacks that the moms had wisely packed.

Off from the eating area in the basement is a large room called simply, Construction Studio. It was marvelous! Lots of little plastic yellow hard hats, and little orange construction aprons. But the central feature were lots and lots of foam bricks. Oh what fun!

Consistent with her personality, our granddaughter soon had several people coordinated, and helping her build a giant igloo. I whipped out my video camera to catch it being built - and its predictable demise!
