Visit to the Library

The twins absolutely love going to our local library.  Now that they are a little older, it is getting easier to take them to places - and the library is so convenient.  We can literally walk 3 blocks from the house and be there.  So that is what we did!  There is a lot for them to do, so I just sat back and enjoyed watching them cycle through all the cool stuff that is there for them to do. 

The first thing they did was pull out the big foam blocks and make "railroad tracks" across the room.  The Gabe found the bin with the dinosaur hand puppets.  He and Grayson both came over.  Grayson told me his dinosaur likes to eat crunchy letters.  That led to running back and forth to get his favorite letters to eat. 

Slight helicopter diversion.
After several trips back and forth they started to explore the other bins.  Gabe found lots of dinosaurs and Grayson found the feely bags.  Each one has items that start with the same letter in them and he ran back and forth putting the bag on the letter it matched on the big alphabet rug.  (See the little blue pillow in the picture?)  Then he started in on the puzzles.

Now back to the letter board!  OK, I did the message, but Grayson helped pick out the letters. 

We ended our time by reading books and pretending at the table.  I think we spent about 2 hours upstairs in the kids room.  I think they may have stayed longer, but it was getting to be time to have lunch and we had to head home.
