My World Tuesday: Basketball Hall of Fame

My daughter and I visited the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts, on Saturday. Della loves the game, and she got to shoot some hoops at the museum, even scoring some three-pointers. She also saw a lot of sneakers and jerseys and game balls. The balls behind glass were far less compelling to her than the ones she handled on the court.

Comments

  1. What an interesting museum! I love how interactive and interesting museums have become over the years, compared to the stuffed-things-behind-glass version we had a generation ago.

  2. Maybe one day she will be there because of her ball skills too! It is wonderful to share times like this with your kids.

    I have finally been able to use the internet on the rec room computer since they fixed it. Thus, I left a comment on everything starting with Sundays BYB post. I am sorry that I have trouble accessign your comment box except on a public computer.

  10. Basketball would be better if it was hockey. You shoulda taken in a Bruins game while you were up there... they're kicking butts and taking names this year.

  21. Great posting, Sandy.
    I had red and white converse shoes in the 80's.

    We usually tend to have snow until mid-April where we live. But it depends on where you live in Norway.
    Those in the north have much longer winter than us in the south and west.
