|Always with the dog. Always. I do have to admit that Chessie is a very patient dog.|
|Getting her hair done.|
|We also went to the air and space museum.|
|She was part of a demonstration where they asked her to catch a ball. I was amazed that she actually caught it on the first try.|
|Then they put goggles on her to replicate what it might feel like to be in space and she then was unable to catch the ball.|
We had fun in the air and space and went up into the space station display. She wanted to stay there and play house and was disappointed when I told her that it was a walk through display and that we could not stay there and play.
|We stumbled onto the insect section while waiting for our turn in the butterfly exhibit and were lucky that the staff were out and were showing off a bunch of different creatures. She liked holding this large caterpillar in her hand.|
|She really wanted one to land on her finger.|
After that we headed to the sculpture park and ate sandwiches on a picnic bench. Abby accidentally dropped half of hers on the ground. It sat there for a while and then a squirrel appeared. First it climbed up the back of our bench and checked us out. It's claws were less than an inch from my fingers. Then it jumped down and sneakily (or maybe not so much) edged towards the sandwich. It finally grabbed it and ran a few feet in front of us and started devouring the sandwich in plain sight. It wasn't scared of me at all as I got up to snap some photos. It finally got scared when some people came walking up the sidewalk and it ran off into the bushes with the sandwich in tow.
