Leonardo's Discovery Warehouse

Yesterday we took another road trip, this time heading out west to Leonardo's Discovery Warehouse.

They have a HUGE playground with all sorts of nooks and crannies. There are sand and water areas, too, but it was so hot we didn't stay outside too long.

On one of the many slides inside the playground!

Inside was great, too! Can you spot Jack? He loved climbing in all of the tunnels--they are also on the left side of the brick wall, too.

He doesn't look very excited, does he? (This was inside the castle wall.)

Both of the kids liked the fishing. I had to stifle my laughter when the lady there told her granddaughter, "Grandma's just not a very good hooker!" Don't feel too bad about that, Grandma.

Alice liked the puzzle table.

Dress up time! Alice loves to pretend she is a ballerina, so we were excited to find this costume that was her size.

They had a painting area and a shelf full of supplies to create whatever you wanted--though they didn't have tape, which aggravated Jack. They also have a pottery area, but it was booked for an art camp, so we'll have to try that next time.

Test pilots!

Ever tried to get two kids into adult sized flight suits? It's harder than you'd think, and they don't stay in them nearly long enough to be worth the effort.

They had a whole area with air experiments that were a lot of fun.

Jack liked to stuff all of the scarves in at once and watch them fly out.

There are also several rooms of animals.

There's a little wood shop, too! This place really has just about everything!

Getting to use a real saw!

Putting those Lowe's skills to use!

The shopping area kept Alice very busy!

The best part of the day (for me, at least) was that we spent it with my friend, Angela, and her girls. We haven't seen each other in at least 15 years, so it was great!

Here we are in high school. We look just the same, don't we?

It was such a fun day and we have decided this will be the first of many road trips!
