Day at the Museums

Thursday, the 22nd, the kids and I headed downtown for the day to visit some museums. I had some deals to use and was hoping that since it was so close to school starting that maybe they wouldn't be quite as crowded as the rest of the summer (it didn't work).
Our first stop was at the Children's Museum where we met up with Kayley and Oliver. We got there right when it opened and it didn't seem too bad at first, but it quickly became CRAZY! We have only ever been on school days so it was quite a shock...and much less enjoyable than usual. Still fun of course, but just not the same as having the place pretty much to your self.
The next stop was the Health Museum, which was a new one for us, and it was nice and empty. There was a great deal for a year membership on Living Social awhile ago so we are excited to go back to this one throughout the year. It is a little smaller than the other Houston museums we have been too, but it's nice because it's less overwhelming as a result. We had a great time checking out the exhibits and especially playing with some of the cool computer programs they had. You could age yourself, make yourself a different ethnicity, etc. and even though they weren't super realistic, they were still fun!
We stopped by Kayley's on the way home to check out the progress on Elouise's nursery and it is absolutely adorable of course. Can't wait for her to get here!
