Day Trip with the Darlings

Yesterday, while Rosie was at the vet getting spayed,(more details on that at this Weekend's Pupdate"),the boys and I headed to The Crayola Experience in Easton, PA.

The Crayola Experience in Easton PA

Since I never got around to bringing the boys there when they were younger, I wasn't sure if they would be too old to enjoy it now.  Luckily, they loved it!  Sure, there were some babyish areas but for the most part kids up to age 10 or so would have a terrific time!

The place is filled with activities and interactive exhibits to keep kids busy all day.  Although the crayons are no longer manufactured in this location, you are able to watch a video to see the process.

Entertaining activities were around every corner.

Coloring Car at the Crayola Experience
fun things to color 

There was a "Be a Star" photo-booth (not shown) which took your picture and turned you into coloring pages!  We cracked each other up with our silly poses!

We admired little artistic vignettes,

and spent time drawing on walls
 in the "Doodle in the Dark" room,
and a "Scribble Sea". (not shown).

Waterworks Exhibit at the Crayola Experience
But the boys' favorite was
the Waterworks/Canal Exhibit.
I think they went through it four times!

Waterworks fun and learning
I just let them play while I relaxed and checked email on my phone.
Why rush them if they were having fun!

But the fun came to a screeching halt once we picked up Rosie with a list of instructions to help her recover from the operation...
The Cone of Shame
This is what I am dealing with now...

I don't know how many more day trips we will be taking over the next 2 weeks.  I need to make sure my little girl doesn't jump or run around too much!  My poor baby!

Do you have any day trips planned for the summer?

  1. What a fun summer outing, one of our favorites was always the candy factory tour! Poor baby, Rosie, it won't be easy to keep her down in a few days, good luck!
