Yesterday the Frugality Is Free family ventured out for some family fun at The Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Kids Love & Family Expo at the Museum of Discovery & Science, and we had a great day with lots of adventure, activities and fun for curious minds.
Our kids love the Museum of Discovery of Science in Fort Lauderdale, and since our oldest son turned 12 this week, a trip to the museum was the perfect way to celebrate his birthday. As an extra bonus the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Kids Love & Family Expo was going on, which meant lots of extra activities such as story time, meet and greet with the kids’ favorite characters and celebrities, and there were even kiddie rides included in the regular admission price.
We started out at the flight simulator section, as this is our oldest son favorite place, and he loves to get there early, so that he gets the place to himself. Then it was story time with Curious George for our two youngest, and Bellamy Blue even had her photo taken with Daddy and Curious George.
After browsing the top floor and checking out some of the sponsor booths, we headed outside for the kiddie rides, where the kids had fun and tasted a lot of samples. They also won prizes such as Marlin t shirts, Miami Dolphin socks and more, and we checked out the Disney tent, where we entered to win a Disney annual pass. Our oldest son was quite embarrassed, when his mom began chatting with a few of the Miami Heat cheerleaders. With a little help from the sweet girls, we managed to get a photo of him and the HEAT girls, and each of the boys got a signed poster from them as well.
We ended up our day at the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Kids Love & Family Expo by exploring the bottom floor of the Museum of Discovery and Science, where our middle son got to see sharks up close, and our two youngest kids got to play in the kids area (while our oldest son headed back up to the flight simulators). It was a fun day at the museum, and we learned a lot about everything from bike safety, to car seat safety and fire safety thanks to all of the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital booths located throughout the museum.
