Marbles Museum


Marbles Museum in Raleigh (and no Erin it's not actually a museum all about Marbles, haha), is by far my favorite place for kids in the area. It's quite a trek to Raleigh for us but when we make a day out of it, it's well worth it. The entire place is filled with activities and exhibits for kids (and adults) to use their imagination. On Friday the three of us went and had a blast. It's a lot of fun for all of us. We built cars and raced them (Greg and I did) for Hayden. He wanted so bad to race cars but in order to race you had to build the car first so that is what Greg and I did for him. Unfortunately Greg's car beat mine every time. The museum has opened a new exhibit all about Olympics. I couldn't believe all the cute things they had for kids to do. They had ping pong tables, 1/2 of an ice rink for hockey, hurdles, long jump, high jump, balance beams and hula hoops. We had a lot of fun and Hayden and I love it when we get to spend the day with Greg.
The long car above is the one Greg built. The first time we raced them, they both fell apart at the end of the track.
The car above is mine...mine was a little easier to fix the second time around.

Greg's car is on the right and mine is on the left.

Our cars are the ones that made it all the way to the end. Greg's was on the left this time and the one that fell apart at the end. Mine actually stayed intact!!

Greg and Hayden hula hooping!

We are going to have to come visit you sometime during Mark's Christmas break, and when we do we will have to go to that museum. Way too fun!
