Our trip to the Library

Today Gabe and I went to the Library.  The library here is fairly new and HUGE.  Some of the locals here call it the "Clifton Park Temple".  Let me just say, it is AWESOME!!  They have almost the entire second floor devoted to a nice closed-off (and nearly soundproof!) area just for kids.  They have a large foam play area with books to read, lots of toys to play with, and tons of puzzles.  They also have several computer stations to play interactive learning games, and a large activity room where they do story time for various age groups.  One of their activities is PJ story time that takes place in the evening.  Kids can come in their jammies and hear stories before bedtime.  Way too cool!  Gabe and I had a blast today, and we will be making the Library a regular weekly (or bi-weekly!) activity.  It's especially nice with the cold weather rolling in.  The pictures today aren't the greatest.  My camera was about to die, and I was surprised the poor thing actually took these few pictures.  

Gabe loved moving the beads around

Why can't the adult section be like this? Who says that adults wouldn't like a foam play area? It looks like so much fun!

I'm jealous of your library! Ours is one room that's smaller than our condo (which isn't very big). Lame-o.
