We (me and the kids, my mom, brother Nathan ((good sport - he's 15)), sister Natalie and her daughter Kyrie) went to the Stockton Children's Museum during our 2nd to last week in California. Natalie and Kyrie came up from the San Diego area to visit, so we thought it an opportune time to go see something new. :)
We went to the Portland Children's Museum A LOT when we lived in Oregon and it was insanely huge and packed with crazy cool stuff, so I tried not to have high expectations for this one...just didn't want to be disappointed, but truthfully, although it was smaller, they had some great stuff and a lot of things the Portland version didn't! Like, a real fire engine, police motorcycle, ambulance, city bus and police car that the kids could go inside and explore. Carter and Gavin could have stayed there the whole time.
I think even Nathan liked the motorcycle. :)
They had an art room with playdough, collage supplies, a chalk board and water painting. Can you name the character Nathan was painting here???
In the art room:
Kyrie and Jemma getting creative...
...and Gavin with playdough. What do you think of the snake he made? J/K. Nathan did that. He also made a pretty impressive cobra but I didn't snap a picture before Gavin smashed it up. :(
That was a fun morning! Thanks for treating us Mom! (MISS YOU!!!)
