Greetings from Tiny Town
We spent much of the weekend at "Tiny Town."
It's a new play place for kids that just opened on Saturday. The "tiny town" has nine buildings: grandma's house, a library, grocery store, hair salon, cafe, auto garage, fire station, post office and hospital. My older son spent most of the time dressed up as a firefighter, running around town and putting out fires.
He ran from the fire station to grandma's house and back again so many times that by the end of our stay his cheeks were bright pink and his hair was damp with sweat.
It's a little less structured than the children's museum we usually go to, and that seemed to engage the kids more. They really did treat it like their own little town, and everyone chose a role to play. Also unlike the children's museum, Tiny Town has an open seating area where parents can sit and sip coffee or read the newspaper while their kids play. And that part alone is worth the price of admission.
