Children’s Museum

Last Friday, a friend and I decided to take our children to the Imaginit! Children’s Museum in Atlanta.  It was forecasted to rain all day, so we thought it would be a nice opportunity to let the kids get some energy out.  The only downside to our plan is that we failed to remember that it was Good Friday and the end of Spring Break for most counties in the metro area.  The things you forget when you have young children.  We had to wait about 45 minutes to get in, but the kids had a great time.IMG_2695 Gavin had a lot of fun playing with these balls.  He carried them all over the place.IMG_2698

They had a huge Moon Sand area for the kids to play in.  We have this stuff at home, so Mikayla was right in her element.  IMG_2700 Gavin has never played in the Moon Sand at home – he had a lot of fun playing in it, too!IMG_2703

They had a little toddler area that Gavin could run around in without getting run over by big kids.  They had a little piano there that Gavin had a lot of fun on.  IMG_2712

They had a big water area that the kids could play in.  They had this bubble that was in the middle of the water area that the kids could pop their head in.  Mikayla thought it was funny that I could splash her and that she didn’t get wet.

They had these cute little raincoats that the kids could wear.  I thought Gavin looked like a little scientist in his oversized lab coat. 

The downside of the museum was definitely leaving.  Mikayla and her friend Matthew were not happy about leaving, but we had been there for two hours and were desperately trying to beat rush hour traffic.  It is always so fun to walk down the street pushing a stroller in one hand and a crying four year old in the other.  My friend was dragging a screaming three year old.   We must have been a sight to see.   When we got to the car (finally!), Mikayla asked me why she did’t get an animal from the gift shop – um, yeah, that was NOT going to happen.

Looks like so much fun! We will have to keep that in mind for an activity when we're out there this fall!
