Stay-cation: Day 7 - Recapping Our Visit to the Creative Discovery Museum

Clark trying to take the vacuum cleaner on a ride down the slide.
You have to put any toys that go in their mouths into a bucket to be cleaned.  Can you imagine how many toys went in that bucket????
Ummmm.  Steak.  Is it organic?

Does this count as a Fourth Meal?

The first part of our trip to Chattanooga included a visit to the Creative Discovery Museum (where we would return again on Friday as well).  We decided to buy an annual pass that also allows for free entrance to many other children's museums in the country.  This particular area (in pics above) was one for children ages four and under and offered a kitchen, tree house, workshop, slide, car, picnic table, flowers (to be watered, of course) and more.  The kids had a great time.  We had a difficult time getting them to move onto the next area, but once they were there.....

They LOVED the percussion room!  Funny since Troy was a drummer in a couple of bands before the kids came into his world.  The kids were less interested in the rooms with string and horn instruments (nothing against either one), but we were in the percussion room for a while.  Woo hoo!  I see a drum set in our future.  I have to say that I am definitely a fan of steel drums (especially when accompanied by a fruity beverage!) because they just sound so relaxing and tropical.  Maybe the kids can ask for one for Christmas???
More of our trip tomorrow.....

Love all the pictures from the last few days. Adorable! Looks like they had a blast. What a great experience for them. Wish they had the cool children's museums when we were little!
