Abby and I went to the children's museum again today. She spent the majority of her time on this stage playing with various musical instruments. She'd sometimes wander off to see something else, but it was never long before she came back to the stage. The museum is in the basement of the mall downtown. On the way there, I stopped at Goodwill with a trunkful of stuff to donate, and I'd taken out the stroller to load up the trunk. I overcame my fears and let Abby walk through the mall to the museum. She held my hand for about 2 minutes before she wanted to take off on her own. Not only that, but after the museum, we went to eat. In a real sit-down restaurant. By ourselves! And you know what? Abby was awesome. This was one of the best restaurant experiences I've had with her. She's always pretty good when we go out to eat, but she does get a little loud at times. With the exception of the very first time we tried to go out to eat, we've only had to leave a restaurant once because she was acting up. And that was only because our food took FOREVER, and she just couldn't sit any longer.

It looks like she just had a blast. She is looking so grown up these days!
That is awesome that abby did so well! Gavin is pretty good in resturants these days. Not great, but good. Sometimes if he isn't hungry its harder to entertain him.
