Hi folks! Before the weather started getting chillier we thought we’d take a stroll to the Discovery Museum. Now I’ve lived in CT all my life and when I was a little girl, I remember going to the Discovery Museum for field
trips. I LOVED this place. I don’t think I can explain to you how happy I get when we drive by the place. It’s still as wonderful as ever, with a few additions. I remember when they expanded the front part and added what look like green legos (they’re not). Now, they’ve added an adventure park area in the back. There is also a school next to the museum. I think those kids are so lucky!
When my niece, Gabrielle, and my nephews Lil’Gee and Geovanni, lived here (before they moved to Florida in 2003), I used to take them to the museum. It was like a ritual with me. I’d take them to the beach in the summer and the museum in the winter. After they moved away I stopped going to the museum. I had no one to take.
Once my children were born I relished in the fact that I could now go back tot he museum. I could take them to a place I had cherished growing up. I still remember visiting as a kid. The planetarium, the neon lights where you could leave your imprint on the wall, the planetarium. Oh wait, I said that already. It’s just that the planetarium was so cool to me. You go in, sit down and then the show starts up above you.
The day we took our kids wasn’t planned. it was a Sunday and we thought, “What should we do today?”
“I know!” I said, almost shrieking. “Let’s go to the Discovery Museum!”
Hubby Henry said okay.
I think I must’ve fast-walked to the front door! I was so excited. Baby Henry didn’t know what he was in for!
