Children's Museum

A couple of weeks ago the boys attended the birthday party of my cousin's son.  We don't see that side of my family very much and it was good to catch up and spend time with them.  We'd never taken the boys to the children's museum where the party was held.  It's only 25 minutes from where we live, which makes it easy to get to.  Now that the boys have been to it, they have been asking to go back.  That let's me know they had a great time, and I'm pretty sure we are going to have to take them back this summer.

Ben is all about tractors and he loves anything John Deere.  He played on this riding lawn mower for at least 30 minutes.

The pretend play grocery store was a big hit.  My boys spent another 30-45 minutes shopping in the grocery store. 

Since it's a local children's museum, they have items from around our area.  This brought back childhood memories.  I grew up in a rural area and we'd cross the railroad tracks to get to our house.  I can't tell you how many times I heard my grandparents give directions to our house "Go about 3 miles on the FM road and we're the 3rd house on the right after you cross the railroad tracks." 

There's an airplane in the museum and the name of the museum is painted on the side.

The honorable Judge Will 
Being a history teacher, I'm loving the mock setup of a courtroom.

It's always a challenge for me to select what photos I want to share on the blog.  I took over 50 at the party.  I hope these few give you a good time had by Will and Ben.

I'm having a little (big) winter blog funk.  I have lots of things I'd like to share, but I'm lacking the time to write the posts.  Maybe I'll get back in a routine soon.

Hope you're having a great week!


  1. When I was younger (sadly, probably not that young, like 12) I loved the grocery store at the Children's Museum by us. Now, I don't even know how to grocery shop. I'm horrible at it!

  2. Love, love, love children's museums.


Comments make my day! I'm so happy to hear from you!
