On a whim last Sunday, hubby and I decided to take advantage of our last day of freedom before the work/school routine resumed and took the girls into town to the Natural History Museum. We went in Summer 2012, but 4yo had only just turned three and 23mo was a small baby so it was all a little lost on them. This time round they both loved it! I’ve included the main highlights in the photo above.
The girls are really into the Eric Carle books Brown Bear, Brown Bear; Panda Bear, Panda Bear and Polar Bear, Polar Bear. Largely based on the animals in these books, we wrote a list in the morning of everything we hoped to see at the museum. Not only did we manage to tick almost everything off, the list kept 4yo focussed for the entire two hours that we were there. 23mo mostly enjoyed the view from her buggy, but really loved pointing at the animals and saying their names.
Although I was totally shattered by the time we got home, it was a fab day out and one that we’ll not forget in a hurry. I can’t recommend it highly enough if you get the chance to take your own kids there!
