Rock Loading Zone

Yesterday, the girls and I headed back to the Duke Energy Children’s Museum for this month’s Signing Safari. We were so bummed to have missed October’s Music & Movement class, and are looking forward to resuming next month! Silly vacation 😉 (Speaking of which, all photo and video is uploaded as of this morning… so WDW posts are to follow!)

Signing class is a bit too involved to take many pictures during, but I did get a few of the end parachute activity. The girls love this one more each time!

After class, we headed out to play. For the first time that I can ever remember, the construction area wasn’t totally swamped with kids! Elise and Avery enjoyed playing with “rocks” in this fun section! (As you will see, a similar theme ensued with Avery even when we were several states away)

We also visited the animals in the vet’s office —

and said hello to some more friends around the world. Another fun visit! More photos in the album, as usual 🙂


  1. I love the picture of Elise with the big grin!

  2. Looks like so much fun! I am hoping the girls get a membership to the museum for Christmas! We have yet to go! It looks like they are learning a lot from the museum!

  3. We really do have a great time there! To be honest, I’m actually looking at a few ideas with regards to the membership. We only really go when we have a class scheduled, and non-members are allowed. I’m trying to see if it would be more cost-effective just to pay the non-member price (Plus parking — that’s the killer!) and go once or twice a month that way, rather than the full membership next year. It’s great, but we just don’t get our money worth when we just hit the children’s museum after classes. Either way, we’ll continue to go whenever we can get there! 🙂

  4. Oh, and as far as them learning a lot — I doubt they’re really getting too much yet. Most of the things that are taught in the bigger kid sections is way over their heads of course, but they have fun (and I get cute pictures), and we do talk about a lot of different things! 😉
