Early Works

Yesterday we headed to Early Works Children's Museum in Huntsville. This was a first for the littles. I had told Katie Lee that we were going to a museum but she did not know what to expect.  She was so excited. 

Katie Lee making a rubbing of the Alabama state flower.   
One of the rooms shows a typical house in the early days of what is now Alabama when people had "Alabama Fever" and rushed to the land of Alabama to buy land cheap that would be good for growing cotton.  Katie Lee did not really care much of the history part but loved playing house. 
Daniel loved spending time at the instruments that played Alabama's state song and other jazz music.  He kept walking back to it. 
They soon discovered dress up clothes and a wagon. 

Early Works also has an area called Biscuit's Backyard.  This was by far their favorite place.  It is designed for young ones to just play.  It is set up with a post office, store, farm, and a house.  I think we spent over an hour in this room.  They had a ball. 

We continue on around the museum to the keel boat. 
We ended our trip in another area designed for little ones, the construction zone. 
I had not been to Early Works in years and they did not have all of the areas for the younger children.  They had so much fun and I am sure we will visit again.
