Exploration Place

Yesterday was free museum day, so we (and 5,000 other people) decided to head over to Exploration Place. The first thing that Lily did was dress up!

While Lily was doing that, the boys and Jeff stood in line to put themselves in a bubble!

Then Lily and I headed over to the three and under section. She had fun playing house, splashing in the water, and sailing her own ship.
While Lily was there, the boys were playing in the castle.
Riley's favorite part is throwing the dragons down this tube.
Zach likes this big knight.

After that, we ventured off to the Kansas in miniature. The kids like to make the trains run around the town and watch the little kids on the playground and amusement park move around. There is even a drive-in movie theatre with a movie playing.

The boys like to make the airplane fly in this simulation.

Another favorite is making this ball float in the air!

When we were done at Exploration Place, we decided to walk over to the Keeper of the Plains since the kids had never seen it. Actually, Jeff and I haven't seen it up close since they moved it, so it was new to all of us.

I couldn't take a picture of the kids in front of the statue (all I could get was the back) so I had to settle with a picture of the kids in front of downtown Wichita, the Arkansas River, and the back of Exploration Place.

It was an adventurous day!
