day in the city

The kids get a few random days off in November, so last week we went to the Children's Museum. We saw some cool things on our walk from the train to the museum!

They love this three-story climbing structure! I'm glad they're older now, I was so terrified when they first tried this!

They had fun racing to see who could pull themselves up the fastest. I think they raced twice and took turns winning!

I like how Malcolm gave his shadow a face and crown.

We had a delicious lunch at Flour. We gobbled up dessert before I had a chance to photograph it.

Malcolm was inspired to use his at home afterwards.

We stopped in the art room and the kids did animal pictures.

They always enjoy building a house!

We had never been in the Japanese house before. It was really cool. It's a real 100-year-old house from Japan, with some updates. Malcolm thought the bathtub was neat.
