PBS Kids visits Capitol Hill…

26 10 2007

Our girls were so excited to go to daddy’s work to meet some of our favorite tv characters.  PBS Kids held an event in the Cannon building last week for the House employees.

Hayley and Lexi couldn’t wait to get down there and meet these colorful critters.   Once we got there, we realized it was much more than the tv characters showing up.  Surrounding the walls of the room were learning stations….FUN learning stations.  The children could build things, toss bean bags at letters while spelling, play interactive games on computers, and many other fun activities.  It was BLAST!

Each character had it’s own ‘handler’, someone who guided them around the room to assure nobody got trampled on and they also had a camera person.  They gave polaraid pictures inside promotional sleeves each time you had your picture taken with the animated guys….Hayley came home with several polaroids.  Hayley was all into high 5-ing or hugging and/or posing with every PBS star she could find.  Lexi, well, let’s just say…not so much.  The event was 2 hours long and as the room started clearing out, she did manage to snuggle up to Clifford and Curious George.

Here’s Hayley and Elmo…

While walking through the buildings to get back to the car, the girls decided they’d like their shoes shined…
