Happy Birthday, Curious George!

Who knew that today was Curious George's birthday? I certainly didn't, but thanks to the amazing Milwaukee Public Library's summer program we were made aware of this very important information and we were able to go to his birthday party!
Happy Birthday George!
If you have never checked out the Milwaukee downtown library it is absolutely beautiful. You walk into this stunning rotunda and enter book heaven. The Betty Brinn Children's Area is huge and there is even a lit lighthouse that the kids can climb to the top of. It was a perfect setting to meet Curious George and celebrate his big day.
Stunning Rotunda

An all glass tile mosaic...

It was so pretty and sparkly
Cole absolutely loved meeting George... he couldn't stop staring at him!

Hello George!

He was SQUEALING in delight!

We weren't surprised that Cole couldn't sit still long enough to listen to the entire story, but he sure did love exploring the Children's Area!
Cole sat through one story. Then...
he noticed a digger out the window and hightailed it up the stairs to get a closer look...

Then he decided it'd be fun to play with a train...
He did join in the singing and dancing...are we surprised?
Then he went back to play with Duplos...

Finally he climbed to the top of the lighthouse...he was hardly tall enough to see out the window!

All in all it was an awesome morning. The MPL put on a great birthday party!
