Afternoon at the Perot Museum

As soon as I got home from brunch at Fernando's last Sunday, Ava woke up from her nap and we started brainstorming a last-minute afternoon adventure. It was pretty warm outside, so we narrowed our list of ideas to indoor activities, and ultimately opted for a trip to the new Perot Museum
 
I have been wanting to visit the museum ever since it opened a few months ago, but we decided to wait for some of the newness to fade in order to hopefully avoid ridiculous crowds. Unfortunately, it was still fairly crowded on Sunday, but that didn't stop us from having a good time.
 
We started off in the Moody Family Children's Museum, which is designed for kids five and younger. Ava liked the section especially set up for babies and toddlers...
 
 
And she even made a little friend.
 

But the section was pretty tiny, so she quickly wanted to move on to the "big kid" activities. Ava especially liked the pretend farmer's market and flower stand.

 

After running around the children's exhibit for a while, we loaded Ava in the stroller to explore the other sections of the museum. She spent half the time chilling like this...


Ava (and Josh) really enjoyed checking out the big dinosaurs...
 


As well as many of the other cool features of the museum...



Overall, it was a fun outing and a great way to spend a hot Sunday afternoon.

One of my only complaints is that the elevators, which were necessary for most everyone because of kids/strollers/etc., were literally the slowest I have ever encountered! Not good when you have a fidgety toddler on your hands. I also really wish the Children's Museum was larger. I think this will be a spot we will enjoy more when Ava is older.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; bad hair days; snoring; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); Miracle Whip; scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and working out. I think that sums it up.
