A had an OK night sleep in the hotel. It was a different story for us, since he doesn't stop moving and likes to kick... The hotel had a nice complimentary breakfast, with those awesome waffle-makers. A was excited to watch TV while he ate breakfast (which would never happen at home.)
After that, we headed out to what I told A would be a place with toys everywhere (joujoux partout!), which he kept repeating.... The PleaseTouch Museum. That place is simply awesome!
But at the beginning, A was a bit overwhelmed... until he found the car wash...
there's a house and garden, where A planted potatoes
a hospital where you play doctor (see what happens when you have too many ear infections?)
a mini-supermarket (two chickens, wow!)
a postal truck!
Towards the end, A decided to go get bricks from a 'brick yard' to bring to the postal truck. I am not sure if they were supposed to be packages, but when he got back to the truck, there was a little boy who looked to be four or five years-old, sitting in the driver's seat. A offered him the bricks, the boy told him to put them in the back. Then A asked "encore?" and the little boy said "yes, bring more!", so A ran back a couple times to bring more bricks to the truck. Finally, the little boy told A to come in the truck with him and A happily obliged. The use of two different languages didn't seem to stop either of them!
A is now at the age where he starts to be interested in playing with other children, but doesn't always know how to do so. It was really fun to see him exchange with this little boy!
After a quick lunch and a Carousel ride we headed back to the car. After the nap, we hung out at the mall for a bit and had an early dinner at a Japanese steakhouse. We did the "Hibachi" dinner, since neither my mom nor A had ever done it before. A was a bit scared of the fire, but handled the chopsticks like a pro!
.. and it all ended with ice-cream!
After that, it was time for a good night sleep before our first day at Sesame Place! I'll tell you about it in my next post...
