Visiting the Children's Museum!

Today Scarlet and I visited the Betty Brinn Children's Museum in downtown Milwaukee. It's only about 4 miles from our house, and is across the street from the Milwaukee Art Museum and Discovery World. It was really fun! They have all kinds of exhibits for kids of all ages, including "Pocket Park" for infants and pre-schoolers. Scarlet had a blast!

Scarlet driving the bus in the "Home Town" exhibit--there's a post office, auto repair shop, bank, TV station, etc...; Scarlet "caving " in the Weebles Coast-to-Coast exhibit

Scarlet playing with the Vermont maple tree pictures in the Coast to Coast exhibit; playing with the water treatment plant in the "Home Town" exhibit

Playing in the "Germ Tunnel" in the Kohl's Healthy Kid's exhibit--you're supposed to only stand on the stepping stones and avoid the germ puddles; Scarlet in her fishing boat in the Coast to Coast exhibit

Log crawl in Pocket Park--serious concentration face.

Sending the fruit down the chute to the waiting fruit crates; surveying the fruit that was just brought back up in the "elevator" by some kids below

Afterward we took some pictures of downtown Milwaukee around the museum. We really love it here in Wisconsin. :)
