Children's Discovery Museum!

published on 2015-02-12

What’s the best thing to do on a rainy day? Okay, what’s the next best thing on a rainy day, besides “stay at home and drink hot cocoa, curled up on the couch, binge watching whatever thing is hot on Netflix right now”?

It is definitely hot right now

That’s right, indoor outing! Cora and I took off to go have some fun at the Children’s Discovery Museum while Shanin was out of town. But boy, was it busy! Everyone else had the same idea. That didn’t stop us from having a good time though!

To add to the adventure of it, we took the VTA into downtown rather than driving. Cora, of course, spent the time waiting for the train playing in the rain (I was looking for Spain or plains, but couldn’t see any, though we did hear planes).

Getting all wet

While there, the first thing we did was go to the fire truck. Of course, since it’s right in the entry way (and because, c’mon, it’s a fire truck), everyone else did to, so that was more frustrating than anything else. So, we went to the ambulance because hey, it’s an ambulance!

need help? sccreeeeeeeeee! I think I should hang on this thingy while driving

We also played with different types of building materials (no LEGO, sadly), and with the other people ALSO playing with said building materials.

them things is big! building a castle cheezin it dancing in the castle we built

We saw a play about water with Potter the Otter (boy otter played by a girl… why they couldn’t use the boy as the otter or make the otter a girl, I don’t know), and Cora volunteered herself for the last volunteer bit. They asked for volunteers and chose a girl right next to her to come on stage, but that girl had already been up, so they chose a boy from elsewhere in the audience. Poor Cora misunderstood and went up there anyway. Then, before they did the bow, she wasn’t listnening and jetted over to sit back down and did the bow elsewhere. I got a giggle out of it.

And we finally ended up… in the water zone, where she got more wet than while she was playing in the actual rain.

showing off her duds let's see how much water I can get in hmmm, here's even MORE water

All in all, we had a really good time. Can’t wait till we go on our next excursion!
