One of the most popular parts of the museum for my three was the grocery store section.
Note that Reid stocked his cart with several boxes of honey buns and chocolate peanut butter bars.
Reid seems to be gathering supplies a little more quickly than his twin brother....
Pierce, meanwhile, has waited patiently for his turn to be a checker. He loved checking out groceries for other kids.
Pierce climbed a rock wall on a large window overlooking the street.
One of the really interesting parts to the museum are these glass climbing slide things. They are kind of creepy since they are clear, but the kids were all over them. They went really high!
Of course there was an excellent pirate ship. Here, Pierce is mounting the black flag.
Looking for other ships.
Captain Cort. I think he needs a step stool so he can see where he's sailing.
On the lower level of the museum is a huge water table set up. The boys loved all the water features, although they did get slightly wet, even with aprons on.
There were plenty of boats for everyone.
And if you knew just where to crawl, you could duck under the water and wind up in a bubble in the middle.
Can you guess what the first thing Cort said to me when we got in the car to go get some lunch?
"But Mom, where's all my groceries?!" Poor thing - he thought we were really taking home the groceries he "bought" at the museum.
