Once in a Blue Moon...
August 20'th a very special Blue Moon rose in the night sky.. Blue Moons are special just as they are but this one happened to also be the second one this season. We needed to do something fun to celebrate this special occasion. So Panda and I struck out for adventure...
Now where do you go to start an adventure if not your local library? This awesome Plexiglas dragon greeted us as we walked in. Our library is filled with interactive and educational 'kiosks' for children to play, interact, explore, and learn from. Panda fell in love with a string of modular, rainbow colored, wooden balls; but I would not let him eat them. After grabbing a few moon themed bedtime books we headed outdoors to continue our adventure..
This Music Plaza is outside our library. They are all permanent structures for the public to enjoy. Panda LOVES all the different sounds. He especially loved the tall pipes that made a deep bell like sound and the drums which he happily kicked away on.
The walkway is strewn with personalized bricks and quotes, but this was by far my favorite.
Then we headed to the local Natural Foods store for our special dinner. We had taco salad with BLUE corn chips and water chestnuts (because they looked like little moons) and for dessert we had chai tea and BLUEberries. This Chai was wonderful and gluten and dairy free.. It did contain soy but I figured it would be safe to have once in a... Blue Moon (wink)... Oh come on... You knew I had to throw that in somewhere.By then Panda was beat so it was time to head home and enjoy the evening and all the good books we had picked up at the library. Goodnight moon, and Goodnight Panda. Be well and have fun.
