We spent the afternoon along the Malecon (boardwalk) in Puerto Vallarta Saturday. We visited the Naval Museum which is a very small collection of naval pictures, models and artifacts.
Oldest Son said "Mommy, that was really good. We ought to have something like that in USA Home Town."
Why did this strike me as interesting? Well, it is not the sort of museum most 8 year olds would think was too great. So what is up with Oldest Son?
Here is my theory. We were fortunate to visit London three years in a row when Husband traveled there on business. I took both boys to every museum and many art galleries during each trip. The museums (British, Science & History, Maritime, Transportation, Viking, etc.) have lots of exhibits that kids can enjoy. In the art museums we would do scavenger hunts to make it interesting. Thus, our kids think of museums in a positive light and we try to visit museums in most places we visit.
P.S. 5 minutes before we headed to airport today - Youngest Son vomited - allot. No time to clean up. Oldest Son grabbed a bucket and in the car we went. Vomit on the way. I took bucket into airport to clean out before Husband had to drive kids back home. I called when I arrived in USA. Youngest Son answered with a loud Buenos Noches Mommy! According to Husband he vomited again on way home. While Youngest Son's spirits seem okay - he was still vomiting at bedtime. Poor little guy and poor Husband ...
