Fun at the Children's Museum

Today was a fun day with the girls! After dilly-dallying at the house this morning, I finally got dressed and tore myself away from my new DVR, so we could do a little road trip. We headed downtown to our AWESOME children's museum.
The upstairs of this place hosts rotating exhibits. Currently, they've got a Clifford exhibit that's been quite popular. This is actually our second visit to Clifford, but the last one was SO CROWDED that this might as well have been the first visit.
And so, the first stop was to see Clifford. Here's Big A, oh so happy to pose for me.

Here's Little A, barely peeking out of Clifford's bowl. Too cute.

And it took about 2.5 seconds for the girls to find SOMETHING to fight about. This argument was over how much mail volume each girl had. Geez.
After exploring all that Birdwell Island had to offer, we moved downstairs to the permanent exhibits. Here, Big A channels her inner paleontologist.
And Little A tries not to fall over from the enormous hat that I made her wear for this pic.
After exploring many rooms, dealing with some pushy brats (others kids, not mine) and making it out of the gift shop without needing an installment loan, we headed home and marked this outing a success. Big A is already planning our return trip. You know, because we only came home with 1 of the licensed character plush. She simply MUST have the others in the collection. I don't know where this "collector" mentality of hers comes from. Ahem.

Oh I LOVE the Clifford exhibit. He was at our children's museum earlier this year.

Oh, and you know the bone thing where you turn the thing and the bones go up and into the bowl? I thought it was a slide. And then my wee ones got in trouble for going down the slide. Oops.

And don't try to go any further up the tail than where the slide starts or you'll get in trouble there, too. Not that I know anything about that. I just saw kids doing it.

So the Clifford exhibit gets a thumbs-up? We've got a few tickets for free admission and I thought about taking the girls to this one.

You know, that Chattanooga children's museum IS just awesome! And that Chattanooga had one before Atlanta is just strange in my book. And the Atlanta one sucks. Unless you have 2-3 year olds. And then it might be perfect if not for the older kids there trying to figure out what to do with themselves.
