We decided to stay in town for our vacation this year, there are so many fun things to do around West Michigan. One of our days was spent at The Grand Rapids Children's Museum, an absolutely wonderful place for children to have fun while learning! Since we are such a big family it was only a few more dollars to purchase a yearly membership, so we now have yearly passes to the Children's Museum, which I'm sure we will be taking advantage of frequently!
On the walk over to the museum we passed the Grand Rapids Public Library, it is such a beautiful building!
Veteran's Memorial Park is located right across the street from the museum.
The outside of the building has beautiful mosiac pictures.
The boys enjoyed shopping, and pretending to cook food using the groceries.
Gabe love telephones lately!!
The older boys had fun bringing packages all around the museum.
What boy wouldn't love a giant construction pit, complete with rocks, cars, hardhats and more?
Giant building blocks...
The music area complete with easy to read music.
And of course the fun mirrors.
Gabe and Jake playing with the nuts and bolts on the magnetic strip!
Ethan loved the Lego table, which didn't surprise me :)
One of the kid's all time favorites is the bubble tables!
The big circle on the table spins, the kids have to try and balance things to put on there.
Ethan loved this activity, it reminds me of a life size Lite Bright :)
Serena is growing up so fast, the piano and helping with the little boys is what she ended up doing instead of exploring, where does the time go??
What a great activity, building with PVC pipes. I just might have to have Jake make us some of these, not only would they be good for building but they would also be good for making tents!
The kids all had a wonderful time, and I enjoyed watching them have so much fun! We will be going to The Children's Museum again soon since we now have yearly passes!
