Trip to the Children's Museum

The kids and I went to the Portland Children's Museum last Saturday, with Grandpa and Grandma Bauer, Aunt Lacey, and Aunt Kayla.
It's a great place, with a ton of stuff to do and see. The kids had a blast, and we all were exhausted!

Kaitlyn spent most of her time in the grocery store and restaurant area.  She bought food, sold food, prepared food... she was in her element!
 Nolan exploring with Grandma
Natalie was very content to hang out in the stroller, and just watch all of the activity around her!
Playing dentist
They were having their 'Storybook' exhibit
If something could be climbed on, Nolan was all over it!
Grandpa kept track of the girls... he pushed the stroller, and went wherever Kaitlyn's little heart desired.
Making dinner in Peter Rabbit's house
Nolan was the little chauffeur.  Anything that had a steering wheel, Nolan wanted to be the driver.
Happy girl with Grandma
And he wasn't afraid to tell the older kids where their place was.
Making sure to scrub his hands in the sink.  He was a little irritated that the water wouldn't come on.
Happily serving the customers!
Construction workers on the scene
Trying to tie a knot
More climbing
He put his own construction hat on.  He was convinced it was a bike helmet.  He kept asking Grandpa, "Gampa, you give me a bike?".
The Dig Zone was definitely a favorite!  The 'dirt' was small, cut up pieces of rubber. This was the last stop.  It was difficult to pull them away from here. They loved it!
Somehow, I see many more adventures at the Portland Children's Museum in our future!  Talon's already putting in his vote where he wants to start out the next time we go.
Phew... we all slept great that night!
