One of the highlights of our recent 2600 mile road trip was our visit to the Springfield Museums. Before we toured the four museums, we took time to walk around the Dr. Seuss Memorial Sculpture Garden. This was a fun walk and a great opportunity to get some pictures with a few of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters!

Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. He published his first children’s book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, under the name of Dr. Seuss in 1937. Next came a string of best sellers, including The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham.
When Grandma turned 90, we had a big party to celebrate the lady who loves to travel. Guess what book we used as inspiration? Yep! Oh the Places You Will Go!
When my kids were young and we were reading books every night together before bed, this was one of the books that topped the stack of books.
So the opportunity to stand in front of this larger than life sculpture was pretty cool.
The only thing that would have made this picture even more fun is if we had brought along our personal copy of the book and read it in front of the sculpture.
