Mississippi Children's Museum

A few months ago Jackson, MS opened up a children's museum, so I decided to take the boys during spring break. I took lots of pictures, but they really aren't too good because the boys wouldn't stay still long enough. One of the museum employees said it was one of their busiest days since their opening, which also complicated my picture taking since there were other children constantly running in front of my camera.

Water fun!

Digging up dinosaur bones

They never stopped moving.

I would like a convo with the engineer of this contraption. The boys would climb in on one level and come out on another level, while I raced frantically through the museum to find the stairs on the opposite end, knocking down other kids to get to mine, before they started panicking when they couldn't find me or God forbid someone kidnapped them.
Did I mention the museum employee saying it was their busiest day since opening?

Loading rocks

Barge captains

What a cute little turtle!

I think this picture speaks for itself.

Lots of costumes for dress up

Climbing through an intestine

Wilson: "I'm a bad guy stealing food!"
Me: "Now Wilson, it isn't right to steal."
Wilson: "I'm just pertendin, Mom."
I'm so glad our boy is practicing such high morals at such a young age.
Seriously, look at this face. Does it really look like he could steal anything?


Driving a combine

Working hard!

Give Bessie Give! The baby's gotta live!

This was about the twentieth time Wilson slid down this slide. Davis was a little more cautious and decided not to try it for fear he would get stuck.

Look Daddy, Cotton!

More fun with water....they each built their own boat and raced them down the river.

Making music

And even more fun with water! And no we didn't stay dry...just look at his shirt.

We got in trouble for hanging on this guy.
Note to Children's Museum staff:
Don't put anything in the Children's Museum that you don't want the children to play on.
It was a fun and exhausting day, but they got to sleep it off on the ride home.
A+ Children's Museum!
We will definitely be back another day!
