Chloe: Next up on our adventures with Grams and Grampa was an outing to the Please Touch Museum.
Amber: I can't believe how much stuff we saw that we didn't see last time! We got to do grocery shopping...
Chloe: We took care of babies at Children's Hospital... we went in this huge train room...
Amber: Plus, we saw some of the other favorites from last time like the fairy tale area.
Amber: This boat was cool because it went up and down when I turned the steering wheel.
Chloe: I didn't like that part.
Chloe: I also really liked riding this horse which I named Maximus.
Amber: I didn't dig this at.all.
Amber (glares): No, I just agree with Daddy - we shouldn't have to pay extra for the carousel. I just sat with Grams in the little bench, getting dizzy, thinking about how dismayed our poor father would be to know that Mommy ponied up (see what I did there) the six bucks for us to ride this carousel.
Chloe: Daddy kiss up.
Amber: Look, you want a piece of me?
Chloe: Oh, let's move on. What else did you like?
Amber: Well, I think we both enjoyed the water exhibit again - I especially liked the ducks. So, I was totally stoked when Mommy bought me this:
Amber (reverently): It is the best duck I have ever seen in my life! Grampa tried to "help" me by carrying it out to the car, but I was on to him. I was like "back up, old man!"
Chloe: Did you say that?
Amber: No, but I gave him the glare. He knew what I meant.
Chloe: I liked it when you flopped down in the middle of the parking lot to just stare at the duck in all its wonder.
Amber: It really is a beautiful duck... Sigh... What did you get?
Chloe: Tayta Head. It's really cool. They had a whole display of them there and I really liked the Spider-Man one but that one wasn't for sale so I got this one which is a girl like me. It is so awesome.
Amber: You lost me at "tayta." It's a what now?
Chloe: Tayta head.
Amber: It's like you are speaking a different language. You know what I got? A DUCK. Easy to understand. Clear to everyone. Such a beautiful duck.
