Jada and I Hit the Town

Photo: We had fun...and learned lots! Two thumbs up!Amy jokes that Jada and I are going to do "Amazing Race" one day.  It would be fun to try, the two of us.  Yesterday, we got a little practice stringing together an ambitious itinerary. 

After breakfast, swimming, chores, gymnastics, and lunch, I left Amy and Aaron home and took Jada on the bus downtown to the National Museum of American Jewish History.  It's a really well-done museum and we thoroughly enjoyed our time through it.

The bus soon arrived and whisked us to the Pearl Street Block Party, hosted by Asian Arts Initiative.  It was a festive time.  I chatted up some colleagues of mine while Jada made a floral headband.

We jumped on a bus and then another, and soon we were deposited back in our neighborhood.  A fun three hours of history and culture and art and father-daughter time.
