Friday night was the museum's annual Open House. The museum is celebrating 31(?) years this year! Yea!
Archer was the night's photographer and did a fine job! He got pictures of almost everyone working (I didn't show them all here). This is a new camera for the family and he is 12, so I think the pics turned out pretty good. I didn't "fix" any of them and a few have glasses glare, but you can still see a great time was had by all. You may also notice that he tended to take pics of people he knows, hence the pics of Calob and Callie...he did take a few of other visitors interacting with the exhibits and presenters...
*Tami (my loyal blog reader, mini-bookclub member, and 'boss' -hehe - of the museum) and I
*Cheryl & Callie. Enjoying the night...waiting to go home!
Callie in the Children's Bedroom (one of the newest exhibits done by an intern from WWU).
Callie and Calob on the Hotel balcony.
Susan & Karen. Just hanging out.
Terence in the Parlor. The organ behind belonged to my great-Grandmother.
Belly up to the bar and visit with Bob. I am sure he wasn't serving actual drinks. Right Tami? :)
Troy, Larry the Logger, and ? Larry is the resident logger - volunteers to 'dress down' and participate in the Open House and Education programs.
Col. Jim the egg and constant joke-telling man! He has been with the museum since it began in 1976! Wow - that is dedication!
Troy being Troy. He is in the Natural Resources exhibit. He particularly likes the chirping birds (which don't chirp at this time - thank goodness) because this one is right below his office!
Thanks for the pictures Archer!
