Children's Museum


Last week, Carson, Madi & I went to the Children's Museum of Phoenix. I wasn't thinking... it was a Friday in mid May. There were at least 3 buses having end of the year field trips. Other than that, we had a great time. For anyone who hasn't been, it's an old 3 story building filled with interactive things for children to do. It's great for kids under 5yrs. My favorite parts were the 3yrs and under room and the pretend grocery store. I had to show Madi how to us the shopping cart. She then proceeded to steal a cart from a child while he wasn't looking and fill it with produce. Also there is this super cool part. They hung about 100 or more foam pool noodles on ropes. You get to walk through them. It's kind of like a blind maze. You can't see where you are going, only noodles all around you. The worst part of it for me didn't even have anything to do with the museum itself... About 30 min. after we got there I realized I split the seat of my pants! They were my favorite maternity pants, too! Also, there was no way we were leaving... It cost $9 a person (anyone over 1yr) to get in. I couldn't just blow that money. So, I spent the afternoon hugging walls, hiking my pants up as high as possible & tugging my shirt down. All in all we had a good time. I think I'm going to gte a year membership. It's a lot cheaper that way & Madi seemed to like it a lot.

I'm so glad you had a great time! We've had a year pass since September and we've used it almost every single week. Definitely a great place for the little ones!! It gets pretty crowded in the mornings, but the empty afternoons make up for it.

Good place to go when it is over 100 out side. That is why we spent so much time at the Library and YMCA when you were little.

Get the season pass, do it woman! I'm always looking for things like that here for me and James to do while Nate's at work, but sadly there aren't that many. But guess what, we're getting summer passes to the swimming pool! Woohoo! Swimming everyday (we only live 2 blocks from the pool). I am in heaven.

Why didn't you take a picture of your split pants?!
