Each year the Smithsonian sponsors a Day at the Museum where people can get free admission to a participating museum.
Last year was the first time I had heard of the program and I took advantage of free tickets to the Sonoma Coubty Air & Apace Museum. It is tiny but the kids enjoyed it. I was very grateful for the Smithsonian's program because without it I never would have thought of taking the kids to this museum. It is only a few miles from our house and it is home to of the first planes to repond to the 9-11 attacks.
This year I opted for the Bay Area Discovry Museum in Sausalito. The girls have gone here on field trips but I have never been.
That was enough to make my day just about perfect.
The kids really enjoyed all do the activities. Henry's favorite was the gravel pit.
He spent quite a bit of time digging. He especially loved the "vest-es".
Grace is easy going and loved everything. Cooper really liked the fishing and crabbing.
