Reese and I met Emma and her mom, Brooke, for a play date at the Science Museum. Emma is Reese's friend from Gymboree. It was so much fun!
The girls looking at the ball maze together.
I really liked that there was a separate play area for younger children. Here we made huge bubbles and played in a water table. This is also where Reese found the touch screen computer,
and Emma enjoyed the magnetic carnival.
Reese and I experienced riding in a tractor.
The girls crawled around.
How cute are they together?
I know, SUPER cute!
Reese found the puppets.
Not a big surprise considering her love of puppets.
They played with a wooden train set and
after a quick snack...
saw an electric train in motion!
They have a really neat treehouse playground for older kids. Brooke and Emma went down the spiral slide there. Looked like fun, but apparently not fun enough for me to go, too.
Reese seemed to really enjoy feeling the copper coil.
It gradually went from warm on one end to ice cold on the other.
Then it was off to explore the optical illusions room.
This was awesome because it had wide open spaces for the girls to crawl and crawl and crawl and well, you get the idea.
This room had a large table and chair set.
Perfect for snapping some mother-daughter pictures.
There were some floor fans going that the girls sat in front of.
Can you say "wind blown!"
They loved it--for sure!
Reese and Emma giving Brooke some love.
Emma didn't enjoy having to share her momma though.
Last stop: the gymnastic area.
They had a bunch of mats to climb on.
Kinda like a mini Gymboree.
They got a bit too close to the t.v.
However, they gained some gymnastics history.
The education outweighed the vision loss I'm sure.
Overall, the Science Museum was a blast with our two favorite play date girls.
Hopefully there are many more play dates to come!
