The Monday after LIFE is Good we went to the AC Gilbert Discovery Village in Salem.  This place is really a treat since it's in a collection of old houses and has a huge playstructure in the middle.  Gilbert was an inventor whose most well known creation is the Erector Set.   


I really like this panel.  Play IS learning!

The bubble room is always fun!

Ryan spent a fair amount of time playing with the dinosaurs, always with a book nearby, which is his usual MO at home too.

Chloe hanging out.

The Bernoulli principle is always fun to discover.


And who can resist a giant chair!  What a lovely end to the conference.  We got to say our goodbyes and headed home full of good feelings and sated (sort of) until Live and Learn in September.
