Touchables Vs. Untouchables

If you're 2 years old like me, I'm sure you are learning that there are lots of things in your house and other places that you CAN'T touch. Sometimes, it seems like everything I even think about touching in my house is off limits. I can't tell you how many times a day I hear, "No!", "Stop!", "Don't touch that!", and "Leave that alone. It's not bothering you!"

Well, today my Pop-Pop and Grammy took me to a really neat place called the "Please Touch Museum". It is inside of another place called "Memorial Hall" in Fairmont Park, right here in Philadelphia. I guess I don't have to tell you that the thing I liked most about this place is that you can touch E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G and they have some really great stuff to play with and touch...

There's a ball pit construction site, car garage, Septa bus, city park, flying machine, nature pond, water works, slides, tunnels, doll house, supermarket, a place to build things, something called an "Enchanted Colonial Village", an old train station, and a train table playset. It wasn't a Thomas & Friends playset but, it was trains that I could play with and that's all that mattered!

I also liked the play area they have called "Alice's Adventures". It has a long thing called a "ramp" that takes you down to a place called "Wonderland" and I found a lot of fun things to do down there. Somebody named "The Mad Hatter" was having a tea party but, there were too many girls at the table so, I decided to go and see what the boys were doing. I also found something called a "showcase" of The Wizard of Oz but, that was no fun because everything was in a glass case and I couldn't touch it!

After we saw all of that stuff, we decided to take a break from touching things and get something to eat. Pop-Pop and Grammy kept telling me that they had a surprise for me before we went home and I found out what it was after we ate. There's also a great big carousel at the museum so, my surprise was a carousel ride with my Pop-Pop!

I had a really nice time at the "Please Touch Museum". Pop-Pop and Grammy made me a promise that they would take me back there again sometime. Until then, I guess I will have to keep working on NOT touching things that I shouldn't touch at home. Here are some of the pics that Grammy took while we were there. If you want to go to the "Please Touch Museum", Grammy said to click on the logo above to get something called "more information" about it.

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
