Dino in the City Exhibit at Pretend City
Dinos in The City blends life-size dinosaurs that will inspire the imagination for an unforgettable experience. The exhibit runs through September 5th at Pretend City which is a children's museum designed for kids to learn how the real world works. The museum is an interconnected city where children can assume various real-world roles and let their creativity rule. When we went there we checked out Dinos in the city and got to see all the animatronic creatures, as well as have fun at the rest of the museum. We spent about 2 hours there and it was time to go eat dinner, but Ellie was reluctant to go. If you come here, expect your little ones to never want to leave.
The Oklahoma Renaissance Festival is back for its 26th year!
Yesterday we went to the Castle of Muskogee Renaissance Festival. It’s the first time we have went in 4 years! It was so great to go back! All four of us had an absolutely amazing time! This is their 26th year and it’s such a unique family fun experience. Both of our boys went on a quest to be knighted. We received clues and explored Castleton collecting stamps all over. After our stamps were collected we went through a learning experience and then our boys got knighted. They also have all kinds of entertainment. The Human Chess Board is my wife and oldest sons favorite, my youngest loved the juggling act by Bob and the Birds of Prey show and my favorite is the Jousting. There’s also a wide variety of shops, games, and food! It’s a great event and only available during weekends in May.
