We just celebrated our amazing son turning 5 years old over the weekend. I was going through photos and we've never really done anything outside of our home for that day.

I still consider myself a new parent and we're just figuring things out as they come. We don't have a long list of experience in this field but we decided to take the show on the road this year stopping off at the Children's Museum of Idaho.

We didn't do a party but invited a cousin and my co-host Kat showed up (probably looking for 'zaddy' more on that later)

I feel bad for parents who take their kids out because that is EXPENSIVE! I was looking at prices for groups at several spots and it easy cheap YO. We paid for just admission for adults and kids with a price of $60. That was a punch ticket price so we have a few leftover and it was well worth it.

This little gem of a spot gave kids and parents a ton of stuff to do. It was kind of funny how the kids destroyed things and the parents put them back together (I was one of them). This little spot is designed to just let your kids play, stimulate their minds and then do it all over again while you watch.

You have to understand I'm just new to a lot of kids things be a somewhat newer dad. I'm familiar with the places we do business with but sometimes you come across a spot that missed. This little children's museum was definitely a hit and what a local spark.

Kids were able to make build/serve from the Idaho Pizza Company, grocery shop at Trader Joe's, milk a cow from Zamzows and more. I loved the NASA rocket, airplane, pirate ship, and outdoor farming. For about $8 dollars your kids can go crazy and dress up while doing it.

This isn't a paid endorsement. I'm just a dad who wants to show some local love to any other parents looking for something to do with those beautiful children. I'll list a link so you can get all the details, directions and prices. They DO offer rooms for birthdays fyi.

Lennox and Leo both loved it.
