CJ’s Awesome Vacation: Day 1

Last week we went on a four-day vacation to Pennsylvania and it revolved around things that CJ would enjoy. Every single day we did something big for CJ, and he loved it. We took so many photos that I’m going to have to give each day its own post.

On our first day, we went to the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. We knew it was going to be good, but we had no idea how large and grand the museum is. The layout is very well thought out, and I especially liked how spacious it is so that multiple strollers can cross paths unimpeded.

Kids took turns controlling one of two mechanical diggers.

For some reason, CJ loves car washes. Maybe he’ll grow up to become a rich meth kingpin who owns a car wash.

CJ loved these cars because the wheels, headlight, and windshield were all magnatized and interchangeable with other parts.

He had a great time constructing his dream race car.

This was really cool. CJ had to place a styrofoam airplane that fit onto a rod and then he had to hold down a large button which helped the rod build air pressure which launched the airplane high up.

Before this, I thought the Brooklyn Children’s Museum had the best water feature. Well, not anymore.

To gear CJ up for rides at Sesame Place, we’ve been trying to get him to ride as many carousels as possible.

What children’s museum would be complete without a pretend supermarket.

In the basement was an Alice in Wonderland area that had a maze and a bunch of other stuff.

Afterwards, we ventured into Philadelphia for some ice-cream at The Franklin Fountain. Grace really wanted their banana ice-cream, but unfortunately they ran out.

And after checking-in, we just had to eat at Chick-Fil-A. The food and service is unparalleled for the fast-food industry.

    Re: Chick-Fil-A, I think I read somewhere that their per-location sales are one of the best in the industry. I don’t think I will ever tire of CFA. My go-to lunch spot!

    I went to a wedding at the Please Touch museum once…cocktail hour was around the carousel, and I remember a lot of kids stopped by the water feature en route to the carousel room. Glad to see you had fun!

    P.S. Banana ice cream is the best.
