A Day at the Museum


Today we went to the Phoenix Children's Museum.  It was an event organized by our Dad's Group.  I didn't know what to expect, since I'd go to the Museum of Natural History in NYC when I was little.  Stuffed penguins, stuffed otters, stuffed birds...naturally I assumed this would be the same, except with children.  I was pleasently surprised to find out it wasn't like that, and instead was a place for play and learning.  There were some pretty cool things there.  A whole room of those noodles you play with in the pool, hanging horizontally from the ceiling, creating a crazy maze like space.  A room with all kinds of tubes and pipes where you put balls in at the top and they go shooting all over the place.  Sabrina loved both of those and was fascinated watching the balls shooting down the pipes.  There was a baby space as well and she had some fun there playing with soft blocks and looking at all the touching displays.  One was made out of different brushes, and each had it's own texture.  Another was different size balls hanging from the ceiling.

Lunch with Papa

Lots of cool stuff, but just one question...is a sculpture made of knives and forks the best thing to have hanging over the kids in the playroom?  Just asking.
