We are members of our town’s children’s museum, which has a long name – something about children, science and technology. We just call it “Oh WOW!”. (That’s part of the name, too, so it actually makes a lot of sense.) Our playgroup arranged to meet there today, so we decided to head out before ballet class.
The children’s museums we’ve visited in other parts of the country (Chicago, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Richmond, etc) have all had a lot more for the kids to do, but ours is cosy and intimate and -best of all- close. The kids really enjoy going. On this particular afternoon, we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
