Discovering

You can still enter the Miraclebody Jeans contest!

This summer we went to the Discovery Gateway Children's Museum. It was my first time there, and I spent all my time on the main floor with my younger kids (didn't get to go upstairs, where I hear there's a helicopter among other things). I think it's a great place to spend time. Kids can really stretch and exercise their imaginations at this well-thought out hands-on museum. You know . . . Discover.

I LOVE the Discovery Gateway... my kids unfortunately aren't as enthused with it anymore. Stupid kids... growing up and stuff.

Okay, I have never been there before. Apparently, I'm a pretty boring mom. But now that I see all your cute pictures and happy kids, I will definitely have to discover it myself!

my kids love that place so much. and i love the fact that i can feel like a good mom for taking them somewhere educational, and then go shopping after.

We went there a couple of weekends ago. Fun fun! And my youngest enjoyed some of the upstairs stuff just as much as my big kids.
