Megan's Birthday Blowout!

Photobucket
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEGAN!  She thinks she's so clever because she blew out the candles without letting me capture it.


Photobucket
You can tell by the look in her eye...


Photobucket
What do you do when it's cold and rainy on your birthday?  Go to the STRONG MUSEUM OF PLAY! http://www.museumofplay.org/


Photobucket
Did Rachel get really tall or did Megan shrink in her old age?


Photobucket
My favorite action figure.  His name was something like "Johnny No Hands."  I like that you can give him hands, hooks, or a toilet plunger...


Photobucket
Wait, Ghandi action figure is now my favorite toy.  Nothing like pretending to fast to beat the British


Photobucket
Serious business


Photobucket
The mini-Wegman's grocery store is a hit with the kids.  Maybe after a couple more visits, I can get Tachel to pick out the items I like and grocery shop for me instead...


Photobucket
Hosting a cooking show


Photobucket
Mmmmm...  Delicious!


Photobucket
Now flying a helicopter


Photobucket
I don't know who most of these kids are.  Maybe one of them is the one I said "Happy Birthday" to and he responded "Who is this?  What are you talking about?" while on a can phone.  I guess that wasn't the phone Megan was on.


Photobucket
"Tornados" an original play by Rachel Lee Dork.


Photobucket
Man, it's hard to get a cab in Sesame Street.  As you can tell, we get in a lot of trouble.  And, don't remind Megan about me blowing a spit wad at a neighboring table accidently at a local diner not long after this...


Photobucket


Photobucket
It's either the Giant from Jack and the Bean Stalk or Andre the Giant Angel.  I forget...


Photobucket
Rachel and Rich in the fairy tale house


Photobucket
The Berenstain Bears.  A favorite of mine growing up and surprised kids even know what they are.


Photobucket
TO THE NERD ROOM!


Photobucket
Megan vs. Donkey Kong


Photobucket
Rich remembering when they had these at the 7-11


Photobucket
People Magazine isn't something I expected to find at a Toy Museum, but whatever.  The cover story is still relevant today, I guess...


Photobucket
Megan Bell Doll


Photobucket
YIKES!  No wonder I haven't slept well since the museum


Photobucket
Tachel and the Bear


Photobucket
Megan and I along the Genesee River.  No pics of when we went to the Memorial Art Gallery since you can't take photos of the art inside.  Some interesting stuff though.  The upstairs was pretty amazing.  Went to a few restaurants.  Made chips and cheese and drank margaritas while trying to hook up the DVD player to the internet.  I'm sure we'll figure that out.  


Photobucket
Flight Wine Bar in the Corn Hill Neighborhood of Rochester.  Pretty swanky place.  The wine was very good (and I'm not a wine drinker).  


Photobucket
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEGAN!  I hope you had a good birthday weekend despite losing your car for about a week (and counting) and not getting the latest Harry Potter movie!!!


Photobucket
A few pieces of other business.  Man, look how sunny it was when we went to What's Ur Scoop?  Remember what the sun looked like?  There was a time when it didn't rain in Rochester.


Photobucket
Nothing like hanging out at Lollypop Farm waiting for a food delivery and hanging out with a horse until it comes.


Photobucket
United Way's Day of Caring volunteers from a bunch of organizations like Xerox, Rochester Institute of Technology, and many others who came out and worked very hard on Lollypop Farm's landscaping.  Looks great and smelled like fresh cut grass for quite a while!


That's it for now.  Just waiting to see if Megan will ever get her car back.  The gas sensor failed and the headlights just stopped working.  It didn't seem like big issues, but we're still without a car and no one seems to know how to get the headlights to work without setting the car on fire (add a fuse box to the tab).  I remember why I decided to stop owning a car again...
