This weekend, Eliza and I spent the day at the American Museum of Natural History with cousin Peter. The day started out fairly nasty, but brightened up a bit as the day went on. The skies cleared and the park was filled with rain puddles. Eliza, like any self-respecting 3 year old worth her salt, absolutely had to step in every puddle.
Isn't she cute:
Then Eliza decided one particularly large puddle needed to be splashed with her hands. As I was calculating exactly the parts per million germ factor of your average Central Park rain puddle, Eliza reached her soaking wet hand to her mouth and LICKED HER FINGERS, pronouncing the rain water "yummy." There are no pictures of this magic moment since I was sprinting toward her with a Clorox wipe wondering if it was OK to wipe her tongue with said wipe.
Before the germ filled puddle event we had a nice day at the museum, so I'll leave you with some photos:
And one last photo of one of the rare sightings of Eliza actually eating ice cream!
