|Road to the Rose Garden|
Timmy was pretty good on the walk to the Garden. It was a bit cold on the walk over but it was a very beautiful area to walk through.
Timmy and I took a break to take a picture. I had to keep my hood on because it was cold and windy. Timmy doesn't really like hats or hoods on his head so he took his hood off. Silly baby :)
The picture below is just another view of the scenery around the road.
Before I got to the Rose Garden, I did not think about the roses still being in bloom or not since it was the beginning of October. Luckily, the roses were all in bloom and the Gardens were beautiful! The International Rose Garden also happened to be free. It was a win-win situation.
Timmy really enjoyed getting out of the stroller after our long walk and running around like a silly-head.
Looking at all of these roses definitely made me want to plant roses. Maybe some day I will. Until that time, I will just have to live vicariously through my sister-in-law Erika.
After we left the playground, I had to go back to the hotel in order to meet up with my husband. He was going to be done with his conference for the day around lunchtime and we had plans to go to another museum. I tried to look for a bus/train in order to get back to the hotel but I didn't feel like waiting for a bus. I thought that maybe I could walk and catch a bus faster. Instead, I ended up walking for like 45 minutes and I am guessing that I walked at least 2 miles or more. Once I got back into the city, I met up with my husband to eat lunch at Subway. We then caught a bus to go to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. We walked along the river to get to the Museum.
They also had a water play area for Timmy. He wore a vest to keep his clothes dry but he still got his clothes wet. Even though he did get wet, he still had a lot of fun playing in the water.
Their was also a grocery area with tons of play food. There was a baby area, a sand pit, an art area, and a slide to play on. Timmy definitely enjoyed the kids area and we liked it too.
After we were done playing in the kids area, we went through the rest of the museum. Throughout the museum, they had a bunch of areas where brain teasers were set up. The brain teasers were really interesting and I thought they were a lot of fun to do. One area of the museum was an exhibit about race. I was not a big fan of it. Another area was called Grossology and it was all about gross stuff happening in your body. I thought it was okay but I could see how other people wouldn't like it.
I would mostly say that we liked the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry because they had a lot of brain teasers, hands- on stuff, and a great kid areas. But, I was not a fan of their exhibits.
After the museum, we grabbed a quick dinner and spent the rest of the night at the hotel.
