The kiddos started out in the "How Things Work" exhibit.
We then went to the Discovery Zone, which, at the time, was featuring Camp Bullwinkle where the kids saw a moose, played in a tent, cabin, raft, fished, colored binoculars and sat around a campfire. (All play things of course.) I didn't get pictures because it was super crowded while we were in there.
After that we went to "Sproutside" (outdoor garden area), so the kids could get their faces painted. Morgan was the only one to get painted on....
...the boys saw sand and they were hooked!
Back inside and after grabbing lunch, the kids played in "Performing Arts" exhibit. This is the "Aerobic Sounds" spot.
This was Morgan's favorite thing. It's called "Center Stage" where the kids could dress up behind stage and perform a play. They even had spotlights and a video camera hooked to a TV so the kids could see themselves perform!
Here the boys are in the "Catch Your Shadow" spot.
Then, on to the "Health and Fitness" exhibit with a where they could"Climb Every Mountain"...
...and ride bikes with "Mr. Bones".
I think the best exhibit of all was called "Our Town", with a "Fractions Pizza Parlor"....
..."Smart Mart Grocery Store"....
...and "Sam's House".
Then the "Transportation Alley" exhibit had a Police Helicoptor that the kids were using to deliver mail, food and supplies to....somewhere....:-)
Plus there was a Fire Station that was a huge hit!
The kids could have spent the rest of the day between "Our Town" and "Transportation Alley". It was neat to see them using their imaginations in what I'm sure they thought was the best play area ever! :-)
Thank you Alexia, Noah and Jack for inviting us out to spend the day together! It was definitely a great time and we'll have to watch for their $2 days and make it back again!! :-)
