The Curious George exhibit was calling our name! There was lots of interactive activities that James actually enjoyed! (We thought 4+ hours was impressive, last year we lasted not even one hour before James was "bored"!)
He really likes these blocks. They have them at school too.
And then we went outside to the Rooftop Art Park.
Dad shows James how to change a tire.
After the car is all fixed, James took me for a drive and on a "date" :)
Working a crane.
James worked cooperatively with a bunch of kids. Jim and I laughed, sat on the side, and enjoyed how intensely they played. I mean, they meant business. They were taking their tasks very seriously. There was an older boy who shouted orders and declared himself the Manager. After a while James started working the conveyor belts on his own and stopped participating in the frenzy to get the blocks up and down the two levels. I was glad to see he was curious about how it all worked, and didn't just follow orders :)
Afterwards we went to Candyland for a quick treat!
What a great day!
