First Fridays bring a lot of excitement here in Columbus, Indiana. On every first Friday of the month at high noon, the tornado siren goes off just to remind all of us residents that we live in a city where winds can form cyclones and destroy everything in its path. I love that reminder--it'll be so much more exciting though when it's not a reminder but an actual warning. Can't wait for that one.
But in addition, first Fridays also mean that the local children's museum is free from 4-6 PM, and you know my motto, nothing beats free! So off to Kids Commons we went (known in our home as "the toilet place" because it is there and only there that I allow my kids to climb in the toilet and slide down).
It was at the Kids Commons that I discovered that Alex finds more joy in jumping rope than I do in a piece of chocolate cheesecake.

Our other favorite attraction would have to be "bubbleology"
Have you ever stood IN a bubble? We have.
Money well unspent if you ask me.
