We received a year pass to the Portland Children's Museum for Christmas. Thanks!
We went for the first time on Saturday. Holy crap, it rocked.
The place was full of age-appropriate imaginative play areas. Erin was most into the 2-and-under room and the water room. She really enjoyed herself and did a surprisingly good job at sharing with the other kids there. We ran into the Brinkleys, whose kids were really into the amazingly realistic grocery store and deli.
They had a cafe with both adult's and kid's food. For those sans kids or those who have not been to such a magical place as the Children's Museum: I cannot impress upon you enough the importance of having eight ounces of mac-and-cheese available for $1.85, or various kiddie treats like Goldfish or animal crackers for sale in Ziploc sandwich bags for $0.60.
Anywho, we forgot our camera, so we'll have to leave you with the links and your imaginations. Imagine something totally awesome.
