Today we went to Marbles Kid's Museum in Raleigh. It was so much fun! Everything is hands-on, and there's a lot of stuff for the kids to do. We initially brought the stroller, but discovered that it would just be parked somewhere in the building, so Casey brought it back out to the car. There would be no stroller riding for this trip! Gillie could touch and play with everything, so she just ran from one thing to the next for about 2 and a half hours. The bottom floor of the museum has a huge area with different pretend play stations. Gillie loved driving the vehicles (fire truck, mail truck, car) the best. There was a kitchen, a stage to put on a play, a boat, an ambulance, a farm, etc. Of course, each play station had everything to go with it, so the mail truck had boxes for the kids to load and unload, a mailman's uniform and bag, a mailbox, etc. It was just really great. There was water play in another area, a big pirate ship in another area, a ball pit, and lots more...there was just so much, and Gillie could do a lot of it, so it was great! We had a great morning together. Here are some pictures from the museum:
