Would You Like To See A Zillion Pictures Of The Children's Museum?

Our state is home to the world's largest children's museum. It has 5 huge levels. It's impossible to see everything in one visit. This time we didn't even make it to the dinosaur exhibit to see the T-rex bones and the fun fossil digging site. We didn't play in the play houses or ice cream shop, and we didn't get to science works, which is Bee's favorite room. We spent 6 hours there, and saw maybe half of it.


Here is the story of some of the things we did see, told in pictures. Many, many pictures. Probably too many, but I will post them anyway.


Skirts


She fell asleep on the ride there. Awesome!
Also strange, because it was 9:30 a.m. but I'll take it.


So excited to arrive! (Yes, that monkey is wearing a diaper.)


They lounged on this spinning bench for a long while, gazing
at the glass sculpture above it.


They are watching the sound and light show at the train depot.
She was amazed, and in this picture she is trying to tell her
brother how neat it is.


Dinosaur play table.



Getting a hairdo.



She is listening to a story on a phone.



He has always loved to play in sand.



"Why yes, I think I'll mail this avocado."



Water table.



She slid down this slide about 30 times. I know I've mentioned
before how much she loves to slide, but she really loves it.



Time to do a little gardening.


He's being a bird, with a giant bird house.



It's a skid steer. All the two year old's are driving them.



Tunnel.



For 15 minutes he was a package delivery man, delivering packages
on this....hand powered thingy.










.











Dragons.


Drawing is serious work!



Sculpting dragon heads.


First carousel ride on a horse--usually she insists I hold her.


He was riding on a reindeer.



Driving a tuk-tuk in the modern Egypt exhibit.


She's checking out the Egyptian store.


Petting a Nile crocodile.


Bee's in this coffee shop making me a smoothie.


Posing with a dinosaur in front of the building.


Good thing we have a membership, because once is not enough.

What a fabulous museum! And your children should be in all the ads for it. And all the articles. And all the everythings.
They are so beautiful.
