Earlier this week, my wife and I took my niece and her nephew out for a date (2 children under 5 years of age…her idea). These two play together are all the time, so we figured it wouldn’t be too difficult to watch them both for a few hours- and they were better than expected! (Oh, I also just brought my 35 f2 and 50 f1.8 lenses with me…it was fun being limited)

After picking them up from school, we headed to Cici’s Pizza Buffet for lunch. Alexis loved her garlic bread and Jaden was a huge fan of the mac and cheese pizza. I enjoyed it all, too. :)

This was my first time at the Kohl Children’s Museum, and I was pretty impressed. It’s pretty much a world scaled down for their size, yet still can be entertaining for the adults. We hit up a Potbelly where they were able to make sandwiches for us (pretend ones, obviously), they went shopping in the grocery store, and had some fun with both water and instruments. They were definitely able to keep themselves entertained, so we just needed to keep an eye on them and pretend every now and then too…if this is what it takes to raise children, I think I’m ready. :)

I’ll leave you with a few words of wisdom I was given at the end of our journey through the museum:
