Children’s Museum!

Late Wednesday evening I got a text from Aubrey asking if we wanted to venture on a road trip to Bloomington the next morning. While I have been to the Children's Discovery Museum several times with classes I've taught, I've never taken Owen there.  We ended up having a really large group with six adults and eight kids.  We played all morning and then did Noodles & Company for lunch.
If you've never taken your kid here, you need to. We could easily spend the entire day there. The first floor (there are 3) is an awesome toddler/younger kiddo space. There's play forts to climb on.  The water table area is like Owen’s water table on steroids. There is an grocery shopping area, pizza “cooking” station, a delivery truck to ride on, and a place with you can pretend to be a dentist or doctor.
