Children's Museum

It's not news anymore (since I'm posting this in January 2010 and we went way back in November 2009), but I thought you might like a little taste of our time at the Children's Museum of NJ. 

It was the day after Thanksgiving...usually reserved for leaf raking, soup making and Christmas decorations.  For some reason, maybe the new, ultra-powerful leaf-blower that Shane "had to have", the yard was leaf-free before the sun went down.  As a matter of fact, it was cleared by lunch...before my mom and I got to the Christmas stuff.  Rather than relax, read the paper, or nap, we decided to pack up the whole gang and head out to the museum.

We got there with only an hour and a half to enjoy it (they were closing early for some reason), but a good time was had by all:

Shane had a good time admiring the exhibits too:

But by far, the biggest hit for Ava was the sand...

...she found it everywhere and played in it FOREVER...

I'm not sure we'll be going back, $10/kid is a bit much for the experience.  But it wore the gang out, that's what's important.  Also note: all the children were bathed and "disinfected" upon the return home.  Shane even went as far as washing down the kids' hands and faces before we drove out of the parking lot!
