MLK Jr. Day at the Children’s Museum of Cleveland

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I decided to take Bryce to the Children’s Museum of Cleveland. This has been on my list of things to do since it relocated and reopened while I was pregnant with Codi. When I knew I was going to have the day off, I planned to make it a date with Bryce and I’m so glad that I did!

Those who follow me on social media have seen my three year old Bryce Cameron in action (everyone reading this should most certainly be following me on instagram if not, do so NOW)!  Bryce has the biggest and best imagination ever! He literally changes costumes multiple times a day and he’s always creating something exciting in his head. You will often find him playing alone but talking to his toys. He’s hands down the funniest kid you will ever meet! It’s so refreshing to watch him play or to have the opportunity to play with him because he has so much FUN!

Anywho, back to the museum! For starters it’s easy to get to and has ample parking. The cost is also very reasonable, I paid $12 for Bryce and $12 for myself and we stayed about 3 hours. Let me also let you know in those three hours we did NOT get to all the exhibits. On the main floor we never explored Arts and Parts (crafts), or Meadow (which would be perfect for Codi) and we didn’t make it to Making Miniature’s on the top level of the Museum. We literally spent all of our time downstairs in Adventure City, the Theatre, and the Wonder Lab.

These are my top reasons why I loved the museum! It allowed Bryce an unlimited amount of opportunities to use his imagination! He was able to explore various rooms, learn, create, and wear costumes…  let me clarify, he was able to wear MULTIPLE costumes! He started as a doctor taking care of chickens, then he went to this office and had “people patients” as he called it. He made a few friends, checked their heart rate and mind. I couldn’t leave without my medicine. He then walked a few feet over and separated food at the farmers market, he cleaned his kitchen and made dinner in the oven. Once he was ready to move on, we made our way to Wonder Lab so he could pretend to be a scientist. He played with water, take that back he played IN water! literally soaked his sweater even with though the museum provides smocks. He loved this! We went from station to station pouring water and playing with balls. Off of this room, was a smaller area where he had a chance to play with foam pool noodles designing and constructing wall murals. We briefly popped in the Reading Nook but Bryce was in no mood to slow down and read.

His favorite part, the place that made him have a complete meltdown before it was time to leave… was the theatre! He changed costumes, performed on stage, and had a puppet show. He made new friends as he went from Director Bryce, to stagehand Bryce, to Batman Bryce all in the matter of minutes. I literally just sat in the audience and watched with the other parents.

The trip was worth all the excitement and joy in his face! I would go back a million times more. It’s not something that requires an entire day, just a few hours. I’m definitely going to consider doing a meet up with parents! As you can see in the pictures, I ran into not one but a few of my friends all who were having a great time. Soooo if you’re looking for something to try with your kids, and not looking to spend a lot of money, simply pack a lunch (there’s no cafeteria but there is a place to sit down and eat) and head to the Children’s Museum of Cleveland and tell them you read about them on #CourtneyCoversCleveland

  • My best piece of advice for anyone who gets married is “Married People Need Married Friends” I write it in every wedding card that we give because it’s what I truly believe. That’s not to say you can’t have single friends but married life is just different. FYI- I’m not debating with anyone this is a FACT! .
.
I created the #MarriedCouplesInCLE events because not every couple has married friends. It’s not to share your deep dark secrets, it’s simply to talk to other people who have been through, are going  through or will go through similar situations. As my husband always says sometimes it’s nice to just hear another husband say he understands where I’ coming from. Topics range from finances to who makes the bed in the morning lol— its just a guaranteed good time with your spouse and a great opportunity to meet other married couples!
.
.
I encourage you to invest in your marriage. Wives... just purchase the tickets, husbands ask way too many questions LOL surprise them and make them show up! The Great Debate is going to be such a good time! See my previous post for details on securing your spot!!!!

  • It all began freshman year in St. Martins Fall 2004 at Duquesne University! Strangers became friends, and friends became family! The best part of college for me was the people I met! .
.
Oh how we’ve grown over the years, last night was everything! @mrs_san_b @rae_right love you ladies!
  • Attending the Duquesne Alumni Diversity and Inclusion Gala! I tell people all the time I don’t know how I ended up here for college  but... as I reflect... I’m thankful for the memories and the friendships made (and of course my start with ESPN which began with the Steelers consistently having Monday Night Football Games) 10 years later back on campus with my friends... I attended Duquesne from 2004-2008 but I didn’t receive my degree in the mail until early 2018... I remember opening the mail like finally lol and crying! Anywho... Cheers to living in the moment ❤️
