We couldn't go until after Twizlet's Princess Camp, so our goal was to grab a sandwich on the way before we crossed the Walt Whitman bridge.
Traffic was a little scary even at 1:00 pm. Teach handled it like a pro (she never drove like that in Utah!) and before long, we were pulling into the museum's massive parking lot. This building was huge! It was like something out of a fairy tale... or a castle. Or maybe just one of those cool old houses in England...
Twizlet loved the first area with all of the vehicles, but Teach was drawn to a brand new exhibit about Mo Willems. We absolutely love his books and this fun little hall had all kinds of pigeon-related games. There were big blocks and little buses for the kids to put over their shoulders. We spent half an hour or so there, but the museum was huge and finally we needed to move on.
Downstairs, right in the middle of everything was a huge Alice in Wonderland exhibit. I watched Twizzler while the girls worked their way through the maze and eventually the book. There was a giant tree and it led upstairs to the next level.
So much stuff to see!! Then we came upon an enormous room that held a beautiful carousel. Good thing Teach already bought the tickets for unlimited carousel rides. Teach and I took the kids first and then Teach and Crafty took them a second time.
After the carousel, we stopped by the cafe for some ice cream, and then it was time to go home. The Please Touch Museum needs to go on our new list of favorites places even if it is very far away.
