Phoenix Children's Museum

On our last full day with Gramma and Pops, we got to take a huge adventure to the Phoenix Children's Museum.  Despite being almost too crowded to handle, we made the very best of it and had an amazing time!  When we first got into the museum, we got double hand stamps, and then went to play in the steel climbing structure.

We also played with this really cool air and tube thing that shot ping pong balls all over the room.  That was fun, although it would've been better had we figured out a way to aim them at Daddy and Pops :-).

Once we'd had our fill, we went up to the second floor for some car and arts and crafts skills.  There was also another, smaller air machine, but this time it was shooting soft balls out of it.  We didn't want to leave!

Then we went all the way up to the third floor to show off our cooking skills.  We love playing in kitchens, and this one was awesome!

After the kitchen, we decided to make some gong-like music before practicing good sharing skills and handing our mallets to another little boy.

Then, while Coopy was racing cars, I decided to stare at myself in the mirror while drumming on empty garbage bins.  And once I'd made enough racket to burst Mommy's ear drums, I decided to drive a pretend pickle and pencil car.

Coopy drove a pretend frosting/toothpaste tube car.

We were both pretty disappointed that the cars didn't actually go.  Before we left, we took some time to play in the foam noodle forest.  It was pretty fun...especially when we got to smack Pops and Daddy with the noodles!

It was the most fun outing ever!  Next time we go, we hope it won't be quite as busy.  Thanks for a super fun day Gramma and Pops!
