Children's Museum

You know you've been on vacation when you have as many photos as you have miles-traveled, and all your days are running together. "What day is it today?" is a common question between Chuck and I. But as we near to the end of our third and final week, it's time to catch up on some of this wonderful trip...

First of all, we hit up the Children's Museum during the week that Chuck was still working. Which meant we needed to go in the evening...so we tried out the "Family Free Night." Um, yeah, that wasn't the greatest idea ever, seeing as how half of Houston also showed up. Here's one shot I got of Chan Man enjoying the water area, though.

And Charlie in the water area:

And the boys enjoying a real live tetris building area...way cool! (Charlie and Chance would build, Chandler would destroy - just like everything else in life, ha!)

So a few days later Mom (Granny) watched Chan Man while we took Charlie and Chance. WAY better idea. No big crowds, all of the exhibits were opened. The Museum is definitely worth seeing. One of the favorite parts for Charlie was this climbing wall thing:

The really nice thing about going without Chandler was how we could devote our attention to the older two. Here's Chuck building a paper rocket with Charlie.

Chuck built Chance a paper airplane which kept him busy for a long time. So yes, we went to the Museum to build Chance a paper airplane (just like the ones we make at home...).

And another highlight for the boys was this area where they build Lego race cars, and race them. There were just as many grown men building as kids (ok, they were all boys...). Here's Chance's creation:

And letting it fly....

Charlie's creation (what's with that expression?!):

And my biggest kid racing his race car:

So my advice to anyone who travels to Houston would be to see the "Children's Museum of Houston" preferably not on a Thursday free night (at least in the summer!). It wasn't too expensive and the kids had so much fun with all the interactive exhibits!
