Spoiler alert: Do not be alarmed readers, we did not leave Lachnado alone with our adopted fast and loose third child Curious George.
After a relatively successful night sleep, it was apple and “ba ba” pancakes for breakfast. It looked like Olaf had a pretty rough night.
Once Eloise’s minion transition was complete we were off for Lachnado’s playdate with his bestie, Curious George. It did not take long once we arrived at the bachelor pad for Lachlan to engage his stare lock on Curious George.
We arrived at lunchtime, so stopped off at The Brunch Club. Liam was not tricked into ordering the Poke Bowl this time. “Fried chicken and waffles for three please”.
It was just a walk around the corner to visit the spectacular Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum again. Out the front, they were still packing up Elfingrove, an Itison sister event of GlasGlow. No ice skating today.
We found John Fulton’s Orrery which the three engineers found fascinating. Curious Eloise had plenty of questions, “why ball?”. Lachlan was upset he could not get in there and nom on it.
“John Fulton (1803-1853) was a shoemaker from Fenwick, Ayrshire. He became interested in astronomy and in orreries – machines which demonstrate how the planets and their moons rotate round the sun. Fulton built three orreries, the third of which is pictured here. It was the most intricate of them all and took him four years to build. When it was completed he displayed it in Kilmarnock and then, in October 1833, brought it to Glasgow. It went on show in the saloon of the Argyll Arcade for a shilling admission fee and was a great success with the public. Fulton then took the orrery on a tour of the United Kingdom and eventually settled down in London. In 1869 a group of Glasgow businessmen led by William Walker bought the orrery for the city. It was toured around Glasgow schools and museums until the 1930s when it found a more permanent home in the Old Glasgow Museum.”
We had to stop by the main attraction again…
Throughout the last half hour, Eloise took a range of photos that she wanted to share with cousin Xavier and her followers.
It was a rapid dash back to the car as we had forgotten the rain covers for the Batmobile.
In the evening the girls baked some peanut butter and banana cookies. Eloise developed a system to keep Dad away so he did not eat them all. Lachlan sat on the doorstep of the cube and contemplated the meaning of life.
