But in Owen's case, it was basically a juice box buffet. He downed a few of them while the rest of us ate the food.
The newest exhibit was "Clifford the Big Red Dog." Sophie enjoys the Clifford TV show on PBS, so she was excited to see this!
In the "Outdoors" part of the museum, Owen loved the pretend creek. Here he is dressed like a beaver.
He just kept throwing the fake tadpoles and crayfish in the water over and over again. Thank goodness for plastic aprons! Those children's museum people really know their stuff.
It was even warm enough outside to go to the rooftop park and play in the sand.
Sophie got her face painted by a very fancy face-painter.
She also sported this at church the next day.
Here, Owen is showing Clifford his tattoo. It's how he greats everyone lately.
But by far the biggest hit of the night was the water tables. Owen would have played here until the wee hours of the morning if we hadn't gotten kicked out at 8:30. Again, the brilliant aprons.
