We had a lovely family outing on Friday evening to the Children's Museum of Manhattan and then out to dinner at Ollie's. We've been trying to have an official monthly family outing and so when I heard that the Children's Museum has free admission from 5-8pm on the first Friday of every month, I thought that would be a perfect way to kick off our new goal.
Noah had a blast in the giant playspace. He was especially enthrawlled with the giant model fire truck and MTA bus (not surprising at all). He also got a kick out of the sand table -- but had a hard time understanding why I wouldn't let him climb in it. After he finally figured out that it wasn't a sand box, he was pretty entertained. We also checked out the Dora and Diego exhibit on the 2nd floor which was a huge hit (also not surprising). Noah loved driving Diego's rescue truck and playing in Dora's room. Then we topped the evening off with dinner at Ollie's, where Noah thoroughly enjoyed his plate of fried rice.
