Matt and I were excited to plan a little family vacation this summer. We picked a few days to head to the West coast and stay at Matt's sister's house in Sarasota while they were on their own family vacation out of state. A groupon popped up one day in my email for the Glazer Children's Museum in Tampa, and we knew we had to take advantage of the awesome deal and visit while we were there.
This children's museum was perfect for the age and stage that both of our boys are at. There were 2 stories of nothing but fun stuff to do!
There was so much to do that Matt went with Tanner and I went with Carson separate ways on the first floor because we were all so overwhelmed with it all.
Matt and Carson building...
I think the favorite activity of this whole museum was climbing through these raindrops. The boys were not scared of the heights and spent alot of time exploring.
They just kept going higher and higher! So much fun!
Daddy showed Carson and Tanner this fun soccer game. They could watch themselves on a monitor that made them look like they were at a really big soccer game, then they'd try to block the balls.
The rock climbing wall was more of a hit with Matt than the boys! Silly Daddy!
In the art room, they had 2 staff members leading a group of kids in this olympic paint project. Carson didn't really understand what he was making, but loved the paint nonetheless!
His finished olympics project...
I have over a hundred pictures of all the fun we had at this museum, but here are a few of the highlights. Carson loved the fire station area. He dressed up like a fireman (quite a handsome one!)...
Then slid down the fire pole to Daddy at the bottom...
Then the boys pretended to drive to an actual fire in the firetruck. It was so cool!
Carson also loved this pizza making station. Maybe a future pizza maker?! He was really good at this!
Daddy showed the boys how fun it is to press your face and hands up against this fun sensory board! They were cracking me up!
Tanner loved playing in this little pretend vet clinic. He loved all of the animals! They also had a play Publix grocery store complete with carts and play food.
TT giving the kitty a drink...
After a few hours of FUN in the museum, we let the boys play in the downtown splash area which was right next to the museum. We had such a wonderful afternoon!
