Children's Museum of Phoenix

I went with Tate and his preschool to the Children's Museum! This experience was much different (and more enjoyable) than my first trip. The first time I went with Jace's kindergarten class, and I was in charge of five five year olds. Plus, it was field trip day. It was packed and I was having mad crazy anxiety. But this day, there was hardly anyone there, and I really enjoyed the time I got to spend with my baby.
I did not attempt this jungle gym thing of sorts on my first visit to the museum, but I more than made up for it this time. We did the whole thing top to bottom (3 stories) twice. I even got down on my hands and knees and was crawling in some places. Mom of the year?
The air tubes that shoot stuff out (not sure of their actual name) was one of Tate's favorite things at the museum, and we probably spent most of our time playing at them.
I'm not sure what this one is called either, but Tate enjoyed it nonetheless.
The ice cream cart!
If you know this baby, you know he loves pickles...I was trying to get a picture of him in the pickle car, but there were tons of kids surrounding it, so, no such luck. I love his face in this one though!
The museum is full of imaginative play...It really is every child's dream. Here's Tate in the pretend pizza parlor. Apron?
Check...Hands washed?
Check...Pizza made?
Check...Into the oven? A wood-burning oven, no less!
Check...and out?
Check. It's a little tougher going in than out.
I think Tate could have done this all day if I had let him!?!?
But there was shopping to be done! Not sure why, but these pictures were taken with my phone.
Tate enjoyed painting the castle. Getting the paint on himself? Not so much.
Last, but not least, here he is crafting. The End.
