First Trip to the Museum!

When Avery was born, I knew there were 2 places I wanted to get memberships for...the zoo and the Strong Museum of Play. We got an offer in the mail from the museum that was too good to pass we joined about a month ago. I've been wanting to take Avery, but wanted Gabe to be able to come the first time we took her. The weekends there are typically busy so weekdays are better if you can go then. It just happened that Gabe and I both had off on Good Friday and the museum was open so we decided to go!

The place is really huge and honestly, it would take you all day to go through it and look at everything. They don't have a ton for babies, but they had a baby area that we took Avery to.

The baby area had lots of crawling space, padded walls, and baby friendly toys. Avery of course made a bee-line for the rings (her new obsession)...

She loved seeing the "baby" in the mirror:

She attempted going up and down the hill a few times:

We stayed in that area awhile then walked around the rest of the museum. There weren't too many other places for her to enjoy, but we found a lot of open spaces for her to crawl around in. I think we tired her out, that's for sure! I can't wait to take her when she's older-she's going to love it! Now is the time for us to enjoy the exhibits we want to see!

Since it was so warm and Florida-like today, Avery tried on her new outfit that Pa and Grandma bought her in Florida....

The visor didn't stay on too well though!
