Rain Out

Today was the big day that Ricardo was going to take off work to take the kids to Six Flags.

After watching the weather report we decided against taking 3 kids 5 and under to an amusement park in the rain.

Ricardo came up with the idea of going to Crown Candy Kitchen and then the City Museum.

Of course at Crown Candy we split two milkshakes between the 5 of us. It was plenty. The kids also each left with a giant rainbow sucker.

The City Museum was way sensory overload for the kids, but they ended up having a great time. Some of their favorite parts were the toddler room where they went down the slide of tubes. I don’t know how to describe it other than it was like how they transport packages in a UPS warehouse.

They also liked the ramps that you could run/slide up and down. Ricardo and I like that too. We had to laugh at the dad who wore kneepads to the museum for that specific attraction. He was way sweatier than any of the other kids.

The train was also a big hit, but they had to let Piper Ann off half way through because she was scared. It goes through an area thats only lit up by blacklights.

It took a little bribery, but they did the 2 or 3 story slide. Oliver was all over it. I’ve never seen him giggle so much before. After watching her brothers a couple of times, Piper Ann even wanted to do it. After 3 or 4 times Ricardo called it quits because he was tired of climbing up all the stairs to the start of the slide as I waited at the bottom.

Of course there were no naps today, but hopefully they’ll sleep in tomorrow…I won’t hold my breath.

    That sounds like more fun to me than Six Flags! I must confess that I have no idea how packages are transported at a UPS warehouse though…
