Breya’s birthday is coming up and my mom had been thinking of whether or not to have a party. She’ll be 7 this August and we only have a few more years of her enjoying kid birthday parties. Yesterday, she had a field trip to the same place that I went for my first grade field trip. The Discovery Center is a hands-on children’s museum. It’s much more than science, though. I recall driving a firetruck, pretending to be a dentist, shopping in a child-sized grocery store and soooo much more. It was like a giant toy room and I had a blast. So did she. She had so much fun and even talked about many of the same things. Much of it is exactly how I remember it, so I’m sure they added more. I don’t remember much of what else they had. I thought they had a zoo. When I looked up their website, their prices are very reasonable, even for birthday parties. However, since they come in packages and it’s hard to have a birthday party in the summer (because of the lack of contact with school friends), we might just end up going ourselves. It’s $5 per adult, $6 for kids and free for babies and toddlers, I think. That’s pretty amazing. It’s also about an hour away from us but it’s so worth it. I doubt we’ll need to make birthday invitations since there won’t be many children but I hope we get to have her party there. I would love to go back! It would be great to see it now that I’m much older. We might have to take my elementary best friend. It was her favorite field trip, too. We even talked about trying to find the name of it a couple of years ago so that we could go ourselves! She would love to take her little brother and sister up there, too, I’m sure.
