Children's Discovery Museum

Heather and I went to the Children's Discovery Museum in San Jose with some friends. It was a fabulous idea, and I'm so glad we went!

The first thing we did was stop at the face-painting station, and it was a big hit. Heather actually asked to "go to museum for paint facing" for the next several days.

Heather said she was a tiger. See the stripes?

I kept having to wipe paint off Heather's upper lip so she would stop licking it. Tasty!

The water area was so cool! Heather found it very overwhelming at first, what with the big kids and loud water and balls flying overhead, but she really enjoyed the calmer little-kids area.

The reading area had fun mushrooms to sit on.

I think this sand table was another of Heather's favorite activities. Scoop and pour, scoop and pour...

And at the end of the day, we had three tired kiddos!
