Kelly likes to watch a TV station called Sprout, and told me there was a contest to meet “Chica” in Philadelphia. It required downloading and coloring a paper “Mr. Mailman” and being photographed with him in various places, a la a travelling gnome or Flat Stanley.
So Kelly and Neil took Mr. Mailman out for fun this Friday. Neil played at a friend’s house in the morning, but Mr. Mailman went with Kelly and enjoyed storytime at the library:
Then we picked up Neil and went downtown, where Peter treated us all (including Mr. Mailman) to some Starbucks:
Afterwards, we went to the Children’s Discovery Museum. Along the way, Mr. Mailman took a break to play in the flowers:
At the Children’s Discovery Museum, in the Circle exhibit, Neil gave Mr. Mailman a thrill by putting him on a spinning circle:
I think Mr. Mailman was relieved to go back to Kelly and help her sort letters in the museum’s postal history portion:
I think Mr. Mailman had a great time in San Jose.
