Appropriate Play makes for a great Mother's Day...

Well, today being windy and cold we decided to venture to the Monmouth Museum in Lincroft, NJ. I had heard that it was a great little joint and being so close to home, we gave it a go. Also, the price wasn't bad. $7 a person.. $20 bucks for an afternoon is right in our budget as of late.

We got there and there wasn't really any cars in the lot. Owen thought he was going to school at one point and started to cry which is hilarious since he loves school. But anyway.. we arrive and the fun ensued!

We went right into the Wonderwing and it's for kids ages 2-6. Owen was an appropriate playing champ. Sometimes he's really hesistant and just sort of wanders. Not today, he dove right in and let the fun begin. He ran right into the kelp forest and thought it was funny..

From there, he just sort of explored a bit but was really interested in everything and wasn't stimming at all, which was great!

He really enjoyed the whale slide. You slide through the mouth of a whale and it's red and lit up and fast so he thought it was the bee's knees.

Then, he was on the climbing nets that connected the pirate ship to the lighthouse. He was a little nervous at first but once he realized that he could do it.. He seriously did it about 10 times!

After that, he moved on to the tree and lighthouse to climb up and down. He was little nervous in the tree because it was really confined. He made it about 1/2 up and then came down.

After this section, we decided to hit the big kid's section ages 6 and up just because we could. He liked it, but not as much as the other part. This was a Space Exploration theme. He thought the tunnel slide was great because it landed on "the moon" and was really dark..

Then, there were more nets to climb, and this time, he STOOD! He knew it was special because when he was done, he in typical Owen fashion, applauded his great job.

And, then it was time to go, but not before getting the most appropriate photo of them all...
