|The Young at Art Museum was AMAZING and I'm so glad we went!|
It was free museum day for some participating museums on Saturday (yesterday Sept 22) and we decided to try this one out. It's in Davie, about a half hour from where we live, and we had a ROUGH morning, but we made it there! Only to stand in line for eternity. I seriously would have left if the kids were not so excited. I really, really want to go back another time because it was insanity on the free day. It was PACKED. I literally thought I lost Molly at one point, she had been standing RIGHT beside me and suddenly vanished and so I thought someone took her so I immediately notified the first worker who walked past right then and I was explaining that she was "four, blonde hair, super skinny, Wonder Woman tshirt, she was just right here" and then she suddenly appeared again. Nerve wracking. We had friends from our ward who came and left half an hour later because it was just so insane. But my kids LOVED it, so we stuck it out for about two and a half hours. But I feel like we were a little gypped at the awesomeness of it because of the craziness of the crowds. There were so many cool art projects you could do, but it was insane trying to find a scissor, or tape, or glue, and I'm sure on a regular day there would be plenty. So I told Sterling we have to try again. I was still very impressed and liked it a lot. Just stressful trying to count heads for two hours!

|This was the Saturday morning cartoon exhibit. The kids loved it, but there were SO MANY KIDS! haha.|
I thought I took a picture, but there was this giant wave you could climb inside, basically a massive jungle gym. My kids went inside (it was tiny entrance, not really for adults) and didn't emerge for over ten minutes. I was getting nervous, except there was nowhere for them to go but eventually back out. They LOVED it!
Basically it was a huge success and such a great children's museum!
