Yesterday my friend April, with her three boys, and I, with my three kidlets, headed out to the Imagine Children’s Museum in Everett. It was pretty crowded and crazy and both adults felt exhausted at the end, but the kids had a blast and that’s what it was all for :)
Elsa had so much fun. It was her first time being old enough to do anything and she kept me running all day.
They had a cool room with black lights and glowing things. This was by far Elly’s favorite room. If she escaped from my view, this was where I’d always find her!
Elsa, Grady and Gibson in the water room. Always a huge hit and even I have to admit its pretty darn cool.

Ethan and Elsa… She tried to climb in a few times!
Little (or not so little any more!) Garrison.
There is a small padded play area for kids 5 and under. Elsa was by far the youngest in there but she held her ground very well. When this little girl gave her a push, Elly yelled, “Hey!” and the little girl said sorry. Being the youngest, Elsa is no stranger to being pushed around or standing up for herself!
Ethan’s meal for me, from the kitchen area.
Gwen was too shy to come out to the stage in the theatre area, so Elly just came out and stood there in front of everyone. Then she tried to copy a big kid and walk off the edge. That ended with a face plant, but she wasn’t hurt :)

Gwen was running around everywhere but I managed to catch a picture of her!

How can you not love this little face? Gwen is going to marry him one day, or so she says :)
April may not appreciate me posting a picture of her boys fighting over a block, but I did because I saw Ethan all finger-wagging about how they should share! The irony here is that not 5 minutes later I had to pull Ethan away from the blocks because he got mad at Elly for knocking his stuff down and pushed her over. Practice what you preach Ethan! :)
Gwen was proud of how tall she built this tower. Elly-zilla took care of it pretty fast after this picture was snapped.
Once we got home, all the kids took outrageously long naps which was nice and allowed me to catch up on a bunch of stuff.
Today I’m taking the kids over to my parents house to spend the night! J and I will be going out to dinner and then tomorrow wrapping up all the presents that have been stashed in the hiding place and getting things ready for Christmas. Good times.
