Children's Hands on Museum

Saturday, after a morning of working at home and trying to keep Audrey entertained, I decided it was much to hot outside; so we headed into town to the Children's Hands on Museum in Tuscaloosa. (If you are ever in town and need a place for the little ones to visit---I highly recommend it!! Great prices and hours of fun!) When we arrived I decided to inquire about membership packages. Taadaa! They had a bargain for 12 months membership for all 3 of us. It also included toddler programs that Audrey could attend each week. Hooray!!
I've been concerned since Audrey isn't in daycare anymore that she would get bored or not have the interaction she needed and desired.'s the perfect solution. (Big smile here :) )

Once I got us signed up, we headed to the lower floor...where the things for her age is located. She had such a fun time. After 30 minutes of "picking the apples and carrots" on the farm and loading them into the wheelbarrow, she be-bopped on over to the music/puppets area where she found out that banging on the drums was awesome. Then the nice tall tower that some stranger guy had built attracted her right to it and she did some demolition. Of course, many apologies were given to the guy...but he thought it was great and continued building tower after tower for Audrey and his little girl to destroy. Awww, what a nice fellow.

Next, we had to check out the beaver room. This room has a lot of critters in aquariums, microscopes to view interesting creatures, a reading center where you can read with tons of stuffed animals (Audrey enjoyed laying on them instead), and a "beaver dam" with a slide on it. (note to self: beaver dam entrance hole is made for little kiddos...not mommy's with big hips---not fun getting stuck there!)

Time flew by while we had fun, but it was soon time to drag ourselves home for a little nap. Whew! I know I was exhausted and Audrey slept well that night.
