A Kid Friendly Weekend

We managed to pack a lot of kid fun into the weekend!

Things kicked off Friday night with movie night at the school.  The kids all put out blankets on the cafeteria floor and ate popcorn while watching Big Hero 6.  The adults had their own little room they could go to for socializing and snacks.  It was a win-win!

Saturday we had a sitter come over to watch Evelyn so that we could take the big kids snow tubing at Ski Roundtop.  The high was in the upper 40s and it was sunny, so it was a perfect day for some outdoor fun.  Everyone else apparently had the same idea though!  The regular hill had a 45 minute wait, and we knew there was no way our kids would be patient enough for that.  Not to mention the cost for four adult tickets for what might have been two rides, was a lot more than we wanted to spend.  So instead we bought two (much cheaper) tickets for the kiddie hill, and let the kids tube as much as they wanted because there were only a few families on it.  They both had a blast!

Yesterday afternoon we went to check out the State Museum of Pennsylvania with the family of one of Trenton’s classmates.  I wasn’t really sure what to expect out of this museum, but it was really neat!  The kids loved the fossils and the animals.  They had a lot of questions in the Native American exhibit – there was a burial, a woman giving birth, and Charlotte just couldn’t understand the lack of “real clothes” for the men.  There was also an amazing kiddie room.  Evelyn even got in on the fun here!  It was the first time she had been able to explore in a place like this, and she loved every second of it!  We only made it through about half of the museum, but military and their families are free, so we will be going again to see everything we missed!

And since we had such a busy weekend of fun, the kids went to bed early last night without having any trouble with the time change!  A certain almost 14 month old even slept through the night!

I'd hate the snow, but tubing looks like so much fun!
We almost made a trip to the museum this weekend, but ended up not. I can't wait to visit home. They have a great kid's one!
