The MN Children's Museum

My friend Keirda and I decided to take a trip to the Minnesota Children's Museum one hot day last week.  Keidra had taken her 1 year old Charlotte before, but Griffin had never been, and the last time I was there, I was enjoying the museum myself (as a kiddo).  Wow how it has changed!  Everything is updated and awesome.  The two coolest areas for the little kiddos (1 year-ish) were the water table station and the Habitot room.

Here are Griffin and Charlotte exploring the water tables.  They have these cute little aprons (so smart!) so they don't get their clothes all wet, and they can just splash away!

They also had little whiffle golf balls (Griff's fav) floating around so you could throw them in and fish them back out.


In case they get married someday.....
Look at those eyes!  What a doll...
Griffin's love of water began early with Cooper's water dish, and it obviously continues.....
He also loves watching older kids play.  They just think to do things that he hasn't yet, and then he tries to copy them.
Oh, and there is also a bubble station...which Griffin also loves, but....
...he liked to try to eat them as well.  I guess there are dirtier things he could try to eat, but yucky nonetheless.
The bubbles probably are geared for a little bit older crowd, as it is much higher up than the water table.
You can even see a little smear of bubbles on his cheek here...
He kept escaping the water area to go lift blocks, and throw them over the edge of this truck.  Again, copying some big kids....
Then we went to the Habitot room which is pretty much childproofed in all ways (except the stairs/ramps). 
Griff is great at getting up stairs, but since he has no fear, he tries to go right back down and isn't quite ready for that yet....
By this time, he was drooling for lunch and we headed out...but what a fun day with Keidra and Charlotte and a great place to spend a too hot summer day, or any winter day!
