Friday Night

It is Friday night. In my ongoing effort of make children tired, I decided it would be fun to take the kids to the Children's Museum. It is in St. Paul. These guys have been going here since they were teeny tiny. It never gets old. We have a blast. I will let you in on a secret. Friday night is the BEST time to take kiddos to the Children's Museum. Open late, really empty and quiet.... at least until we get there : ). Tiffany brought her boys too. It's always fun to go with them! Here are some highlights of the evening.

They opened up the rooftop for outdoor sand and water displays. Fun times.

Tonight they also had a fairy tale room. This was part of the Cinderella story. Did you know that "they" have found some form of this story from the 9th century in China.

Another room has a factory display. The kiddos all have to work together to move around the large gray cubes. Kevin was loving this job! This is a room that does not change. It is so amazing..all ages love this "factory" and it never gets old.
Ethan was running the factory.
I was snapping away with the camera and captured Andrew. He was done with the whole picture thing.

This is the wilderness room. These guys are inside a huge ant hill. It has tunnels and slides for the kiddos to climb around in. Em and Maria found the queen ant.
Oh did I mention that Maria was spending the night? (another reason I wanted to wear these guys out!) They are still downstairs giggling and watching movies. Not sure if my plan worked.
Don't get excited, they are faking.
