Fun Family Trip

This past Saturday we decided to take a trip to the Cleveland Children's Museum. I've held off for a while because I wasn't sure if Dominic was old enough to enjoy all that the museum had to offer and at $7 a pop I didn't want to waste $21!! If you live in Northeast Ohio and have children I HIGHLY recommend taking a visit to this awesome museum! There is SO much fun stuff there. They have a giant sand room where kids can take off their shoes & socks and play in the indoor beach (we opted out of this one because it was REALLY crowded), a pretend grocery store, RTA bus, houses, a great and BIG water play area, and an infant/toddler room. Dominic of course wasted no time finding and playing with he could get his tiny hands on!

They had been building a second location about 1o minutes from our house but last weekend the building that was close to being finished...burned to the ground. :( I'm hoping that the owner plans to rebuild. Either way we are looking into getting a museum pass this year to enjoy all the other Cleveland Museums as well! :) Here is the website if you want to check it out!

Dominic playing with the cars. I actually just bought this table at Target 75% off for $24 last week!! Dominic will get it for Christmas 2010. Gotta love sales!

How cute is this little raincoat?! Lou & Dominic playing at the water table

He really enjoyed splashing around in there. It was neat to watch him figure things out! He's so smart!

Playing in the pretend house, he of course found the few trucks that were in this room!

We were about to leave when we found the toddler playroom. Dominic climbed into this wagon and started scooting. Considering that he makes me drag him around the living for 45 minutes daily on his riding truck, I knew just what to do. He just kicked back and enjoyed the ride! This room was great-everything was soft and age appropriate!

As you can see, it was a fun filled day! Dominic didn't want to leave, and had a minor fit when we tried to get his coat on. We promised him that we'd come back soon!!
