|Meet Mr. Bones -- a walking dinosaur that was a hit with the kids!|
One of our favorite places to go in Denver is the Denver Nature and Science Museum. Recently, the museum renovated the "Discovery Zone" which is a designated area for kids ages 5 and younger (although kids older than five are allowed).
To celebrate the reopening of the Discovery Zone, the museum held a few members-only afternoons and evenings. I jumped right on the chance and reserved spots for us earlier this week and I'm so glad I did. It was a great evening where my son and I got spend some time doing something special and it was a good night for it -- my husband had a work event that kept him out late that night.
We checked out all the new exhibits and surprisingly, my son's favorite was the mini-theater where a speaker led the kids through an interactive presentation. We attended a bunch of them: Animal Tracks, Into Space, and Through the Seasons.
My favorite part was the fancy dinner buffet. While my son munched on chicken nuggets and tater tots, I got to enjoy roasted chicken with steamed vegetables, mashed potatoes and gravy. Dessert? Creme brulee!
|Water Zone was lots of fun but not novel enough my little guy.|
|Circle time at the interactive theater. I love that my son sits still nowadays.|
