A few weeks ago we wanted to do something fun with Lil, and something that was different than the zoo. So I looked up the Discovery Center of Idaho and figured out that there were probably some things that Lil would enjoy. We packed up Lil and headed to Boise.
I was a little worried that Lil wouldn’t have fun, but figured that the Discovery Center is in the Zoo parking lot so we could always make a stop there if necessary. I was totally worried for nothing.
Everything at the Discovery Center could be touched and played with. Lily loved it.
Of course a lot of the exhibits were way over
my her head, but she still had fun touching them or turning their dials or whatever.
Lil loves looking at herself in the mirror, so this infinite mirror thing was the best thing she’s ever seen.
I was wrong, the little grocery store was the BEST. THING. EVER. EVER. EVER.
She put little fruits and veggies in her cart and had a blast.
Then she got to check out. Oh, the excitement of it all.
She goes grocery shopping with us every weekend and sees how the whole thing works and the fact that she got to do it herself was so much fun.
Every time she scanned a item she went “boop boop”. I have a video of it somewhere, I need to find that.
We were on our way out the door when we saw this bubble tank and had to stop by and see what it was all about.
This was my favorite thing at the Center. Lil and I had so much fun blowing huge bubbles, while Waldo took pictures.
You know it’s a good sign when Lily asked as we were walking out the door to come back soon. And the next day she kept asking to go back to the place with the store. We will definitely be going back to the Discovery Center. It was a blast.
