the children's museum.

I'm not going to lie, I'm a little protective about this secret I'm about to let you in on. 
But, it's so good, it's hard to stay quiet about it!

A children's museum just opened in downtown Graham and so far it is the best kept secret in town.  

For Christmas this year we gave the twins a membership for the year.  To be honest, I'm not sure who it is more of a gift for.  The boys or me!  

The museum is only a couple of miles from our house and it's right off Main Street.  So, we go for a run and stop at the museum when we're done.  Or, we go for an hour before nap time.  It's a change of scenery for the boys.  They can play and I can take pictures or read or just sit for a few minutes.  It makes for a wonderful break, believe me!

The under two section is my favorite.  It's enclosed so the boys can explore without me having to constantly redirect them.  Also, there's only one way in and out so I know we're completely safe when it's just us in there.  I'm not on constant edge about making sure I can see both boys at all times.  

I'm actually pretty territorial over our little under two section.  When someone else comes in I kinda stare them down in hopes that they'll feel super uncomfortable and leave us alone.  Just kidding.  Kinda.

Except when it's their daddy who shows up at the gate.  He stopped by while we were there today and spent a few minutes playing.  

He's such a good daddy.  I hope Crews and Tate come to understand just how blessed they are.

Anywhoo, back to the museum.  Like I mentioned, it's a nice little secret.  We live in a small town and the museum is new.  We were talking last week about how we were hoping that it would do well.  And truly, I do hope it does well.  But, I have to say, I was also glad when school started back around here so that we could have a quiet random mornings or afternoons there.

Okay, enough talking and a few more pictures from this afternoon:
