The free exhibit for kids over the summer months was Curious George: Let's Get Curious! George is one of Lincoln's favorite characters right now, and we actually had planned to get there more than once - as it was, we visited a couple days before the exhibit closed just after Labor Day.
Lincoln was pretty excited just by the entry!
This exhibit was really fun, but unlike Funville - which was good for all ages, seemed to be geared more toward young school-aged children. There were lots of things to experiment with, like learning how things move and how shadows work. There was a tiny mini golf course and a craft station. It was all really neat, but a little outside Lincoln's scope of understanding.
Regardless, Lincoln had a grand time running around the exhibit and he was less than pleased when we had to leave.
Next we headed to Fritz's for an early dinner.
I don't think the novelty of this restaurant will ever grow old. You place your order by phone (at your table), and your food is delivered by train! We visited at a time of day when the restaurant was not very crowded, but the kitchen staff sent some trains around the room randomly every now and then. It was a huge hit. Lincoln was even more excited than the last time we went!
For our vehicle-loving boy, this place is just about perfect. He devoured most of his chicken nuggets and fries while Addie scarfed down the ever-popular GoGosqueeZ applesauce packet.
We didn't have any change, but he was happy enough to just sit in the train ride. What a cute little engineer! All in all, it was another successful family adventure!
