K and D Day

A few days ago Kylee and I had the opportunity to spend the entire day together.  It was a great time and Kylee even made up a song to go with our day...

Mommy and Kylee
Sitting in a cafe
First came the museum
Then came the art
And now we're eating lunch!

We explored some of the fun things downtown Silver has to offer.  We went to the Silver City Museum and had lots of fun.  Kylee got to see the pictures from the floods that created the Big Ditch, then afterward we went down to the Big Ditch and looked at it with a new perspective.  

Then we wandered through some of the art galleries and discussed the various paintings, sculptures, etc that we saw. 

We stopped in at Hester House and enjoyed their fudge and truffles.  For lunch Kylee chose to eat at Millie's Bake House.  Kylee is an extremely picky eater, but I was really proud of her since she chose something new and even tried several bites of it!  That's huge for her.  And to be honest, I tried her panini and it wasn't that great anyway. Mine was really good. 

To top off the day, we picked up our bikes from the bike shop and rode around the area for awhile. 

I know this sounds like some sort of school field trip, but that is exactly what Kylee loves.  She craves learning and making connections with what she learns, and anything new and different.

Loved hearing about the K and D day. Sounds great and fun. I have never been to the Silver Museum. I really need to do that on a trip back home.
