Too many to choose from.

Tucson's Children Museum was our fun today. And oh, what fun we had.

***Warning...lots of photos to follow. I have opened a Smugmug gallery, but have not uploaded everything to it yet. If you are looking for lots of pics, then you are in luck!
I kept trying to take a whole picture of the gate to the museum, but never got a chance with everyone opening it to enter. The whole gate is of, huh?
This building reminds me so much of back east. I love the outside of this building....
They had to greet the dinosaur and it's baby....
Speaking of babies, my little baby had such a good time in the Wee Wonderland room. She loved the mirrors that were at her level.
She made a new friend and kissed her frequently.
Okay, this was hysterical. She was playing peek-a-boo with herself! She would slowly go down and laugh really hard when she saw herself. Have I mentioned how much I love her?
I just thought this one was sweet...don't you love her outfit?

For the first time, Lindsey and Michael got to drive the fire truck. It seems every time we are at the museum, no one is willing to share it. Today, they got the helmets and jackets(Michael couldn't lift his).
She was ready to rescue.

Tyler checking out the police bike. See how big he is?
Learning and fighting over how energy works.

She absolutely loved this huge rug of the world. I have to find it for her.
The museum has this cool farmer's market area. The kids had so much fun shopping, cooking, serving, running the cash register, taking telephone calls, playing legos and lincoln logs.
The art studio area was a great place to relax and calm down from all the running around.
They loved the maze...
This smile was this big the whole time we were kidding!

What made me smile was seeing them enjoy the reef you could crawl through,
seeing them be entranced by the trains,
Tyler actually cooperating,
them having silly fun with the mirrors,
making music with pvc pipe and flip-flops. Who knew?

watching them study the dinosaurs,
seeing Michael in awe of the sealife display,
their excitement over the sea animal puzzles and being happy about getting it right,
and observing my little computer lovers play,
and learn.

A fun, fun day. Now, we are off to Tyler's social skill class.
