2008 Parents’ Picks Awards and MY museum story!

First, I want to apologize for not posting in about two weeks. I was out sick for a while and am now back and ready for a great summer at the museum. Speaking of the museum, and summer, take a look at the Parents’ Picks Awards link that I have included! The Children’s Museum in Easton is in the running for ‘Best Children’s Museum’ in the Boston AND Providence area in this wonderful contest. We would love love love your votes! The voting is open until June 30th so please take just a few minutes to vote for us on the awards website. The image to the left will link you right to the voting webpage, or you can get to the page from our museum website! We are very excited and would really appreciate your vote!

And now, as promised in my last post, I would love to share why the Children’s Museum in Easton is so near and dear to my heart. Believe it or not, this museum was the first museum I ever visited as a little girl. Venturing back and reflecting on my earlier realization that time flies, I will never forget the day my Auntie Karen decided to take me to the museum in Easton. I feel like it was yesterday that I stepped through those giant doors, entering a young child’s interactive paradise. Years later I returned to the museum with the same aunt’s children. We spent hours in the museum, constructing in the wood shop, doing arts and crafts, and exploring every inch of the old restored firehouse. All of the memories came back to me this day, as I was able to share such a great experience with my cousins, in the same place my aunt had introduced me to years before.

It is amazing to think about the great circle in all of this, now that I am interning at the museum. Three distinct stages of my life have included this museum, and I am so thrilled to be back as a college student for the summer. The museum is just as great, if not better than I had remembered. As I look ahead to my future, I can honestly say that I am leaning towards the small museum setting. And therefore, at this stage in my life and as a college senior, this summer and these experiences have placed me right where I belong.
