Some of the best times I remember as a kid were when Mom or Dad would pile us in the car to run an errand (with Dad it was always a trip to the hardware store), and then we would instead pull up to the movie theater or museum or some fun activity completely by surprise. I thought I would surprise the kids by taking them to the children's museum, and they were not disappointed.
On this visit, Henry seemed really excited about the climbing wall. Little Man is actually pretty good at it, and I love the look of concentration on his face as he considers the best hand- or foothold to grab next.
We also had fun with the clay. Mostly pounding it to death, but it was fun nonetheless.
The travelling exhibit was a Wizard of Oz theme. There were lots of activities to do with light and color and sound. It was pretty fun.
