Last week I took M and E to the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. Most of the museum is for kids a bit older, but we went to the nursery area, which was fabulous and more than enough. When I got them out of the stroller they screeched with delight, immediately pulling up on a wood barrier and smiling at all the babies toddling around, the colors, the toys.
Their favorite thing was a very low wooden platform with a bunch of blocks on it. Attached to the wall next to the platform were two metal bins. M spent about a half an hour carefully taking all of the blocks out of the bins. E enjoyed crawling around on the low platform, practicing going from level to level and scooting off onto the carpet while holding a block in each hand.
Since it is Sketch Sunday, I thought I’d commemorate the outing with a watercolor. This is them at the museum, checking out a mirror. This is also part of my new “Explore Pittsburgh with Twin Babies” initiative. Stay tuned for the next edition.

I love your sketches!! And also your adventure at the museum!! Love those trips!!
Thank you! You’re helping keep me motivated 🙂
Love it! Playful, innocent, fun, curious, a reflection of what the world looks like through an eyes of a child. Make it twins at that. Beautiful! Have a great week.
Thank you so much!
Awesome sketch! Glad you all had fun too. 😀
Thank you, Wardy! It was fun.
The sketch is lovely. It really captures their joyful little mood.. I remember my guys at this age. They were always reaching upwards like baby orangutans! It sounds like they’re doing really well and enjoying socializing too! :o)
They’re shy at first, but once they warm up they really do seem to enjoy being around other people and babies. Today we went to a plant conservatory–it was pretty fun 🙂
You have just reminded me that we have an Australian Museum membership and that I must make use of it. Thanks.
Oh good, hope you got to go!
