A museum! At least for a Texan summer playdate that is. Last week the heat was up to 104 degrees F, and it was becoming such a pain to spend time anywhere outdoor. So I decided to take my parents to one of the best museums I've been to so far, Perot Museum of Nature & Science. Loaded with tons of educative information that are showcased in a fun and interactive way, the 4-floor museum is suitable for anyone from babies to grandparents.
They got this little cafe on level 1 (where the entrance is) with both indoor & outdoor area.
Facing the cafe, is this little garden with man-made streams flowing around it (kids love to get wet here!) and a leap frog play area. They also got a little outdoor music pavilion where visitors can play their little song.

Get ready to queue and pay $15/person. Thanks to my friend, Ivana, we got to enter for free (she's a member, she pays about 100 dollars per year to get it as often as she wants for free). If you're bringing a baby or a toddler, head straight to the lower level (LL) and play around the awesome Moody Family Children's Museum, where you can find a miniature of the city of Dallas.
This is where my baby makes friends. Once he's old enough, I get to bring him to the sand pond outside (in front of the stairs on the background of the pic).

And another making friends moment :)
If you are into art, you can definitely check out one of our favorites as well, Dallas Museum of Art where the entrance is FREE!! We are soo excited to join its art class for babies and toddlers next month! Details click here.
