City Museum

The other week i went to to the dentist, which is downtown on the 17th floor.  It had been awhile since I've gone downtown and after driving and walking around i got the itch (speaking of itch...I've got some poison ivy on my arm and it's been really itchy this morning) to go back.  We used to live just a few blocks down the street from the City Museum and could even see the ferris wheel on top of the building from our apartment.  Out of the 2 years that we lived there we had never even been.  So the other weekend when we talked about wanting to go do something downtown i remembered we had gift cards to the City Museum!  We had always heard cool things about it and had even walked past it countless times.

Ferris Wheel on top of the building

of course as soon as we get on the wind picks up and a big cloud comes by.
this was the fastest Ferris Wheel I've ever been on!

there is a slide below the girl climbing...we didn't climb up but we did slide down after climbing around in this thing underneath the praying mantis.  It was pretty scary actually and i was definitely wearing the wrong shoes.  It was just these metal bars and it felt like we were going to fall but i couldn't use the grip of my shoes so i had to use my knees to climb out of it.  

10 story slide.
This used to be an old shoe factory

bugs and skulls

All through out the building inside there are these jungle gym type climbing things.  Or these caves that you can crawl in.  And slides.  Lots of slides.  That's a slide above beside the man sitting.  My knees were bruised from crawling around.  I saw some kids with knee pads...a very good idea!  
*Note: we weren't the only adults climbing, sliding, and crawling around!

Here's a view of the outside.  It's from a couple years ago in the winter though.  We did the rooftop stuff, but when we were about to go out and do some of the other stuff it started to rain.  I think Jeremy's sister and her kids maybe be coming to visit in a couple months and we were thinking of maybe going back.
This place is like every kids dream!
