There's not a ton for Emmett to do there yet at his age, but if we only have to pay $1 a piece, I think we'll definitely be heading back on future Fridays. There are a couple of sections of the museum that are specifically geared toward toddlers, like the PlaySpace and Peep's World, where we spent most of our time. Still, I can't wait until Emmett is old enough to enjoy some of the cooler areas of the museum like the awesome New Balance Climb, a "3-story climbing sculpture made of brightly painted curved platforms." To be honest, James and I both wished we were a little younger so we could play in it ourselves.
The coolest thing about the trip was the opportunity for Emmett to interact with other kids his age, which he rarely gets to do. James and I had a lot of fun watching him play. Let's put it this way -- Emmett is definitely not a shy kid, and he definitely doesn't need to know James and I are in proximity to have a good time. Oh, and yeah -- he's a huge fan of bubbles.
