When the weather won't work WITH you...

run away and play!
We went to the Museum of History and Industry where this almost authentic 1890s bank witnessed an almost vicious and nearly cold-blooded faux robbery.
Here the things are re-enacting the rape and pillage of the ocean upon which our glorious city was founded...in part.
The rape and pillage of the Yukon also contributed, but that is a different museum.
Nevertheless, isn't they just right next door to cute?
Here Thing One is drawing a portrait while in the background...

Thing Two urges his imaginary steeds forward by flailing them with a scarf.
The boy has the soul of a Grinch I tell you.

Here I am finally getting into the action at the waterfall park where we had lunch.

Because really, what says we are ignoring the rain like hanging out at a waterfall park, eh?

Great photos, as usual. Yep. Those things are right on the verge of bein' cute!

When you wrote, "Here I am...." I expected you'd be in the pix? Am I blind?

Lucy,
I am the very small, dark mass in front of Thing One in the last photo, the one in front of the waterfall. When the light is low I am rather difficult to see.

I can see why you like those Things, Ariella. They do look like they are kind of fun, in a goofy kind of way. Just what dogs like! And you look lovely, as usual.

Very cool!! Glad you had such a good time.

Hehe - yeah - you show that rain who's boss!!

Well, that looks like a lot more than I have been having in this rain and mud mud mud!

Lily said...

I wanna go to the museum too! Um... where did you say the rape and pillage museum was again?

Fred said...

Looks like a great day. Glad you got in one of the pictures, those other two are such hogs! :)

schnoodlepooh~ They are goofy, perfectly so, and thank you, I thought I was in particularly good looks that day.

Snav~ 27 days now...

Lime~ It was fun! I need that guidedog uniform though, so I can go in museums.

Barefoot~ You have to just go find something interesting to do...like laundry *snicker snicker*

Lily~ Get your butt out here, let's go!

Fred~ They ARE camera hogs, and I hate to say it, but I think there is a human bias around here. You don't see THEM being shut in a kennel and deserted now, do you?

Wow! Thanks for the inspiration! The buffledog is happy though - he'll sit in the rain for hours daring the squirrels to come out! The water just rolls off of him! :)

Pillage and cruelty to reindeer. Things after Toyplayer's heart.
I was not raised around boys, and it has been a revelation to me how Toyplayer combines absolute sweetness with imaginary bloodthirstiness.

I never realized museums could be such fun.
