Cowgirl weekend

I am so behind in blogging. Weekend before last was a nasty, rainy, cold weekend. Poor Stacy's four children had all been sick, she was sick and I was sick. K has it this week. Stacy decided that she had to get out of the house so we decided to head out to a children's museum in Cartersville. Stacey's dad went earlier this year and he liked it so much, he joined. I read in the paper that there was a big cowboy festival going on. So we bundled up the kids who weren't sick and headed out. K was extra excited because Stacy drove and K just loves Stacy's car. A minivan. Stacy would like nothing more than a new car. K loves the minivan because it has a built in DVD player. K and I were talking about Stacy's car and how she always crashes into things. K quickly came to Stacy's defense and said that it is not Miss Stacy's fault it is because she has so many kids and someone is always saying "Mom, look at that!" so she is distracted a lot. K was also excited because I told her there was a place where you could pan for gems at the museum. K is all about gems!
We arrived at the museum and headed for the kids area which was downstairs. We did all of the fun activities-rode a horse and a stagecoach and did some fun crafty things. We all got hungry so we went upstairs to eat. They had a chuck wagon going on but it was outside and the weather was so bad so we ate inside. After lunch, we asked about the gems. Turns out were we at the wrong museum. We were at the cowboy museum, the gems are at the children's museum. We did not realize there were two museums in Cartersville. Ooops! The museum we were at had a great collection of Western Art, Civil War Art and Presidential Art. We will have to plan a trip to the children's museum for another weekend and some gems.

That Cowboy Museum is better than you'd think -- I went with the 9th graders, and they had a blast in the hands-on room, just like K!

Let us know about the children's museum . . .
