Last wednesday was a hot humid scorcher, so I packed up the kids and we headed to the Providence Children’s museum, and all of its air conditioned glory. I really love that museum, it is small, but SO fun. Instead of feeling like we need to move along in order to see the whole place, we took our sweet time in each exhibit. There were giant teeth to brush, a pretend veterinary clinic, complete with real x-rays, there was a real roller-truck, a road and bridge building place, and this hallway with rooms off of it, with life-sized examples of Providence throughout the last few hundred years. We really liked the ship from the 1800′s, and the grocery from the ’60s. The best place in the museum (maybe in all of Providence, OR THE WORLD!) is their water room. We save it for last because it is impossible to drag them out of there once we’re in. Kids go crazy in there…put some smocks on them and let them have at the three pool set-ups, with spouts and levers and waterfalls and such. There is a little reading spot in what looks like a giant wave, and I took a photo of Jane in there that will go down as an all-time favorite of mine….
Enjoy the pics, I am back to editing photos.
(ps…that gorgeous baby in the background of one of the grocery pictures is Baby Abigail, who comes to our house during the week….she needs–nay, deserves–a PROPER introduction to the world at large, check back tomorrow. We LOVE her.)
