Today we went with friends to the coolest kids exhibit:
Noah's Ark at the Skirball Center.
The Museum is beautiful and modern in design and the exhibit is everything a kid would love.
Sherri, Karla, and I have kids around the same age and we look a little funny with our medley of double-strollers:
Waiting for our 3pm entrance time:
And Owen got to play baby Roo:
He wasn't too sure about it all:
The next room is inside the ark. There are all sorts of stuffed animals to play with, books to read, and this miniature ark which Lucy could have spent an hour playing with (organizing the animals):
The third room is a maze of nets and tunnels for climbing:
There's also an old school kitchen area with loaves of bread, a pot-over-a-fire for cooking, and veggies:And a few brooms for the kids to swab the deck and clean up the (fake) animal poop:
Big Owen had an adventure climbing around the jungle gym of nets. Karla finally had to head up there and help him get down:
The last room is my favorite. It looks like this:
It's the other side of the Arc and the entrance to Land and Peace.
A little blurry but I love Paige's expression here as Karla spins her in a basket. I'm sure the kids in Noah's time had similar simple pleasures:
Owen, Grace, and Lucy. Cute friends.
Owen found his own little spot at the top of the stairs:
And that was our trip! We had a great time and it's something we'll be doing again!
