Celebrating at the CMOP

We went to the Children's Museum on a random friday in June and discovered after we got there that they were celebrating their 5th birthday and admission was discounted to $5--not my first choice for visiting. But they had some fun special events going on, like face painting.
Finley was in a strange mood and wouldn't sit down to get her face painted. Then when I sat down with Keeley, she changed her mind. You can see in the photo below how happy she was. Keeley was really cute and leaned very still on me while they painted a little fish on her cheek.
Then Finley came over to get her face painted, but was still throwing a fit and pouting, so it was a little embarrassing.
Isaac chose a spider dangling from a web, and he wanted the spider right on his nose.
Sareny picked a unicorn.
Keeley's little fish looked so cute.
Finley didn't pose for a picture by herself, but she got a dolphin.
I took the girls to the art room, where Finley told me she didn't want to paint on the rocket.
Except then she guessed maybe she did, but she did it with a pout on her face.
Finally, when we moved over to one of the craft tables, she was in a normal mood and was pleasant to be around. Keith took Isaac to the fort room, because he isn't that into arts and crafts.
Isaac tried to ride this trike, but was not too happy when the girls jumped on for a ride. He was trying really hard, but it was just not going anywhere and he was a bit frustrated.
I took Keeks to the baby room, and she had fun. She was blowing/vibrating her lips.
Then she decided to blow on her hand.
Then she smashed her face up against the net.
She quite likes this fan that blows straight up from the ground when you step near it.
She kept coming back to it.
While Sareny and Finley prepared us some delicious food, Isaac and Keeley serenaded us with these pipes.
Despite being crowded, it was a fun day. My favorite activity was the special photo booth they had set up on the first floor, but I can't find the cute picture we got of the three kids who were cooperating--I'll scan it in when I find it. Any guesses who was in a grouchy mood and wouldn't get in the picture?

I love your Children's Museum! We had so much fun there. But poor old Fin and her moodiness. Maybe she doesn't like crowds. Still, it looks like you all ended up having fun.

Cute pics of KeeKee having fun at the museum! It sounds like the baby friendly room is pretty cool. I can't believe she sat still for the face painting! Ivy is so ridiculously crazy right now - she almost can't sit still long enough to nurse (seriously, I'm starting to wonder if she's giving it up). I like Isaac's spider hanging from a web - what a cute and creative idea!

Wish I could have been there for the photo booth. The picture you have is so cute. And I can totally hear Fin saying "I guess maybe I do want..." And that pic of her pouting while painting the rocket haha.
