Yesterday we beat the heat by going to the Henry Ford Museum.
P likes the silly cars in Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks and Things that Go and never believed me when I told her that I had seen a hotdog car. She was quite surprised when we walked into the museum and saw this car right at the entrance.
They have a collection of doll houses too. I liked the kitchen sink in this one. And that little baby in the walker was just TOO cute!
Just look at all of the NEW materials that are in there.
The fabric in this 1950's shirt is pretty fabulous, I think.
Here is P in the seat on the bus where Rosa Parks was arrested. Yes, they have the actual bus on display and they let you get on and have a seat.
The bus is restored complete with mid century advertisements.
A day in an airconditioned museum was just what we needed. I enjoyed all of the mid century goodness on display.
What have you been doing to beat the heat?
