This summer, my friend Emily and I and our moms got together in Hutch--we have gotten together in Wichita the last few summers, but thought we would try something new this summer. We gave the cosmosphere a try----not too bad, but we both agreed that the museum would probably be better enjoyed when the kids were about 4-5 years older, but they all did love the spaceships, planes, and the short movie on walking on the moon. Plus we were nice mommies and let them all pick out a toy in the gift shop--I think they all got planes or rockets and those were more of a hit than the museum!
The kids at the museum!
After the museum, we ate some yummy food at Chiles for lunch and then headed to
Dillons Nature Center to have the kids run off some energy--and we loved it--plus it is all free!
They have a nature park that is hands-on and interactive--instruments, and a huge sand pile with running water plus a little lake you can hike around and you could even rent canoes or go fishing--the kids were in heaven and played in the sand pit for almost an hour--the adults got some great visiting time in!
Playing the chimes!
Our 4 kids--Bryant, Caden, Owen, and Brynn!
Beth and Emily-friends since 3rd grade, wives, mommies, and teachers--glad we make time to see each other--and most the time we enjoy ladies night out and have dinners without children!
Thanks for enjoying the day in Hutch with us Dalke family :)
