Since moving to UT we have always had a membership to the Children's Museum in SLC. Both of my girls have loved going and spending the day hanging out and playing in all the various exhibits and participating in the crafts and activities.
But with times being what they are and wanting to find ways to be more conscious about the amount of driving and subsequent gas consumption we are using, as well as trying to just find the time to spend the day "playing", we started looking around for options a little closer to home.
I was very happy to find that we have a place called the Tree House Museum located just up the way in Downtown Ogden. They are redoing where the old mall used to be and the area is developing pretty nicely into an entertainment haven. There are restaurants and movie theaters and Fat Cats (bowling, arcade games and mini golf) but I digress as this post is really about the Tree House Museum which is made for kids of all ages and very hands on with all their exhibits.
Here are some of the pictures of our time there. I could barely get K away from the choo choo trains and A was having a blast pretending to be the teacher with K as her very willing student. I also think A and K were checking into a variety of future career options such as Radiologist, researcher, musicians, actresses and maybe even fire fighters. All great choices, right?
All in all a great way to spend the day a little closer to home! Enjoy!
So this year instead of doing the traditional picnic at Lagoon, Gpa L's company did a BBQ on site at thier SLC location and it ended up being so much more fun. The girls (and even the dads aka big little boys) ended up having a blast. We all got to walk around and ride on and even operate some of the big construction equipment that they are always seeing on the road.
Here are some pictures to show the highlites of the day.
is now found. I know that I have been totally MIA this summer, but luckily for you, I am back and I have about 10 posts worth of stuff to share so happy reading. Maybe take it in over the next couple of days since we never know when the next post will come (just kidding - I will try to be more "on time" with our going ons!)
