Zoo Day

Warmer weather found us making our first trip to the zoo this year. Sophia loved playing tour guide and showing Emma all of her favorite creatures, although Emma was sleeping and bundled up the whole time. The train and carousel were closed for repairs and upgrades which was a little disappointing. I can't wait until the weather stays warm so that we can see all of the new babies - especially the lion cubs and painted dog pups.

create.

We made our first trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum to explore their new art education space. I had not yet taken Sophia to an art museum since she loves to touch everything. The best thing about the Rosenthal Education Center is that was designed to be interactive - perfect for my hands on little lady.

Sometimes you have to sit on the table to be creative.
Weaving ribbons - her way.
The highlight of the trip was the light box. 
Sophia spent the majority of her time "making robots" which looked like tall towers of shapes.
 Before we left the space, Sophia made a sun catcher.
I loved watching her concentration while she was cutting and arranging the shapes.
We had the best tour guides while we walked through the museum,
which was a little tricky with a toddler who loves to touch everything.
