Children's Museum of Phoenix


This is the coolest place I have ever been - seriously! Colton could have easily played all day! And you know how Colton is... nothing (until this place) can keep his interest for long! The pictures just don't do it justice!

One of the "rooms" had these door handles all along the play area.




In another area the kids could ride tricycles through a "car washer" - Once Colton got the hang of it, he didn't want to stop!


Here is Colton taking one of his few breaks in the back of a pickup truck bed. In this area the kids could pick out a race car and then race them on a few different tracks that were on different levels. Think Pinewood Derby on Steroids!


Colton also really liked this room that had different balls and little cars that went on different types of tracks.

About the only time that Colton was not happy is when he thought he was getting real ice cream in a cone, but they were pretend.

Like I said, these pictures just don't do it justice! I think we're going to have to get a membership here - hey Emily, you should too and then we could meet up there - Austin would LOVE it!

That is so funny... before I even finished reading the post I was thinking how I was going to have to take Austin and meet you there sometime! Let me know when you want to go again, he would love it! Where is it exactly?

Thanks for the great idea! I love that they are able to touch stuff. We totally need to take our boys there.

That looks like fun! I heard they had built a kids museum but it is kind of far for me so we'll see. Hey I got in touch with Robyn Shahan (long story) and she wants your e-mail address. so send it to me sunkissaz@yahoo.com and I will tell her. Thanks!!

Those pictures look so fun! Where is the museum? We are planning on taking our kids to the Phoenix Science center in a few weeks, but maybe we would go there instead.

WHOA Colton is growing up while we've been away! That museum looks like fun - I can't wait to take Riley before we leave AZ next year!

That looks like a ton of fun, I am sad that we missed doing that when we were there!

Hi Becky!!
How are ya? So fun to catch up on your blog and hear about the museum...I definitely need to take Brig there because he, also, is an active little man:)
How great that you and your dad are going to run a marathon "one day"! I am sad because I won't get to do the turkey trot this year because we'll be in Safford for Thanksgiving. It's like the first one I missed in ten years! Good luck and let me know how it goes!
Love, Karlie
