Strong National Museum of PLAY!

One of the best things about moving to upstate NY is that we are close to the Strong National Museum of Play. Seriously, a museum about playing?!? I was in love the first time we went there. We have been about 6 times in the past 1.5 years. It is a fun place for kids to explore, play, have fun and learn. We rarely get to see the whole museum in one visit because there is so much to do. Often we have met our awesome friends the Daytons (who live in Buffalo) at the museum. We will miss them at the museum as they will be moving out west in a few weeks. So before they move we decided we needed to meet up one more time to play. It was a fun day, I wish we both could have stayed longer!
Mariah is trying to read to all 6 kids in Big Bird's nest, but baby bird Christian is flying away...
The museum was having a Dr. Suess celebration the day we were there. The kids made these awesome Suess inspired hats
Joshua giving Bree a ride in the Sesame Street cab. Don't worry Bree quickly managed to take over the driving resposibilites.
Joshua is better suited for driving a race car anyway. This is his favorite thing in the whole place. He is watching a screen that is simulating a real race. They have big lights that tell him when to go and if he jumps the gun he gets a false start. He is very good at it, and serious about it as well:)
Gabriella loved to help her sisters build a big tower, they could have done without her help. She is a bit of a monster!

What a fun place!! I love museums where the kids can really get involved. It looks like they had a great time.

We love the Strong Museum too. Let me know when you go again. We just might have to tag a long!
