While Keith was in San Francisco, we decided to join the Children's Museum. It had been over three years since our last visit, and the older kids would still talk about it and ask me when we could return. We went on a Wednesday, and Lexi came with us. We had so much fun, we stayed there for five hours!
The kids all clambered around in this huge, three-story climbing structure.
Upstairs they have another blowing machine, and Isaac grabbed all the ball things and shoved them in at the same time.
They are blowing out above his head.
I like how Finley's hair is blowing out!
Keeley liked this little plinko type thing.
Another favorite, for some of us, is the baby room. Children three and under are the only ones allowed in this room, and it is always pretty quiet and uncrowded. Lexi, KeeKee, and I love it!
Another favorite room is the fort building room.
This room has all sorts of sheets, doors, bedframes, crates, clips, and other items to create your dream fort. As long as it's not too crowded, the kids love this room.
Finley found a perfect little cozy place to hide.
There is a fun trike area where the kids ride through a trike wash thing.
I love the double seater trikes!
Cute kids! Sareny usually doesn't mind being the pedaler and having a kid sit behind her. The other kids have a pretty hard time if somebody jumps on behind them.
The girls like this little ice cream stand.
Isaac came over to order a cone.
Right by the ice cream stand they have some sandstone rocks you can paint on with water. It's a good idea, but usually the rocks are just way too wet to paint. Keeley had fun though.
There is a little grocery store where the kids can shop, check out, work in the back storage room, and restock the shelves.
They really like this room. It's funny, because some kids just get sucked into the back room/restocking area, and they take it so seriously like it is a real job. I was talking to one grandpa who said he had been in that room with his grandson for two hours. That little boy was organizing the workers and making sure they stayed on top of the groceries. It was pretty funny.
They also have a kitchen area where you can prepare fabric food.
I love the brick pizza oven and pizza peels. It looks so fun!
Next to that room, they have an area with lots of balls that you can roll down tracks, or build your own tracks for them to roll down. Isaac always likes that room.
As I said, we stayed there for five hours that first day, and the kids still weren't ready to leave when we finally did. Lexi and I were pretty worn out though, even if the kids weren't!
