Well last night Grant stayed awake until 11pm. Eeeks, I was seriously concerned about what the day would hold with a kiddo that lost out on precious sleep. That is the drawback of staying in a hotel, too much excitement for a little one to sleep.
We were off to the Magic House, a children's museum, to play for the afternoon. I must say if I had to write a review for this place as a parent, it would not be good. If Grant was given the opportunity to review it he would say it was excellent, and demand to go there everyday. I had some of my first moments of frustration with what is considered accessible. Norah's walker was unable to get to many places, I even saw her get upset over not being able to get through a door with her walker. I was also told a few times that my kids were to young to play with an exhibit. A children's museum with age restrictions, seriously?
Review over, on to the good times of the day.
First up, a sand table, which Norah loved.
While Norah was busy with sand, Grant was busy pumping gas, climbing through netting and going down a slide.
Then there were small spaces to climb through.
A water table, my nightmare. Wet clothes, Norah drinking dirty water, potential falls from slipping on wet floors. Thankfully Norah attempted to drink the water after being warned which brought the water table fun to an end. I know, I'm no fun.
Then into the pretend play area. Grant and Norah loved this spot the most. Dress up and pretending to fix cars, go fishing, play house, make pizza, work in the nursery of the hospital...who wouldn't love this (again, accessibility was an issue here as well.
Then things got electrifying! Good thing we were done with the water.
Well let's see what else we can find...
...an adventure in Wonderland.
Then Big. Musical. Toys. This is just one of them; drop the balls at the top and listen to the music they make as they roll down.
We ended our day in the play area outside.
Off to Sonic for the slushies that were promised for behaving and listening to mom.
