|Lots of little ones equals lots of fun.|
|O. is putting on Abby's shoes for her.|
We went to a children's museum called Totter's Otterville. I can't describe how amazing it was. It was so great! It made me so jealous. I live in a small town, which definitely has it's advantages, but I was reminded on this trip of some of the resources that we lack.
This children's museum was completely enclosed and had room after room of exciting things for the children to play with. There was a food court in the middle with reasonable priced food. Everyone was given a wrist bracelet to help identify which child belonged to which parent. There was so much to do. We spent hours there and the children did not even come close to seeing every room. So much fun! I saw a lot of parents there reading and enjoying themselves while there kids were happily playing in a safe and entertaining environment. The outside attractions look fun too, but we did not make it out there.
|Here they are collected bricks that they will then carry to the other side to load on to the conveyor belt.|
|They climbed into these seats themselves and it kept them all contained while we waited in line to order food. Abby was the only one smart enough (not brave enough) not to climb up and into a seat by herself.|
|The figurine room. Lots of toys, doll houses, animals, farms, etc.|
|Lego photo op. Notice the fun ball pit behind. The ball pit had a ball return tube that moved the balls through a sanitation machine. Abby loved putting the balls into the tube and watching them get sucked away. She was so enthralled.|
|These are out of order, but it's too much work to change them. I took these photos at the house. I tried to get them both to smile. I'm pretty sure that I bribed her with fruit snacks.|
|This was at the aquarium. Shannon took this one.|
|Ball pit. This was fun.|
|This jungle gym was inside the museum and was adjacent to the ball pit.|
|She, of course, loved the water table and tried to monopolize all of the toys.|
|They got very wet.|
We ate lunch there and continued to play after lunch.
I was tempted to buy some toys, especially puppets, in the small store located at the entrance/exit of the museum, but I didn't. We had been planning on going to the zoo this day, but were worried about the weather and this turned out to be a fabulous alternative. Again, I am jealous, but so glad that we had the chance to go.
