Imagination Station

Earlier this week Tracey mentioned that her and Natalie were going to take the kids to Imagination Station in Scottsburg. I hadn't heard of it so I looked it up, it looked fun so I thought we would join them. It was a nice place. At first I thought there may be some bounce houses or something, but it's really just a giant play area for kids. It says up to age 7, and I would have to agree, Levi is almost 6 and he seemed to like it, but I probably wouldn't take kids too much older than that. They did have a small indoor trampoline. Cooper loved it! Tracey suggested I get it for our basement. Our ball pit did bust so maybe that is a good idea. They had just about every riding toy you could think of. I made Levi get back in this to take his picture. Seriously, his head is hitting the top. He didn't care, it was all about the fun. Did I mention it was only $5 per kid for 2 hours of play.
They had a couple indoor/outdoor playhouses too. Everything was also super clean. I didn't leave feeling gross, like I do when leaving most child play rooms. You can kind of see in this picture below on the right side, there are small rooms along the wall. One has cars with various ramps, one is a dress up room, one has desks and school related things. I felt comfortable allowing Cameron to roam around and play and not worry about him getting hurt on anything.
This one is a little blurry but I wanted to document what Cameron was doing. The second picture you can see Cooper is pushing Cameron down the slide. If you look at he first you can see Cameron in the background crawling up the ladder. Well, Cameron was convinced that was also the slide. I couldn't get him to go down the real slide, he would climb up the ladder, turn around and try to slide down it.

Just another of my silly boy wanting to sit and ride on anything.After some play time we headed down the road to McDonald's. This place was chaos. The McDonald's in Scottsburg has a play area, my goodness it was wild. It probably didn't help that we had 7 kids with us. There was one little boy who kept chasing Cameron and scaring him. Cameron likes to put on Cooper's shoes. He found them in the cubby holes and brought them out, sat on the floor and tried to put them on. This little boy walked up and took them away and put them back in the cubby. Needless to say, Cameron did not like him. He climbed up on the table to get away, the boy tried to climb up too.
I noticed there was a Chiller's across the street, I told Cooper we could get a milkshake but I needed to run to Walmart first. Well guess what, Chillers wasn't even open yet. I knew I had to do something so I them a Frosty. It was the first time I let Cameron have something like this in the car by himself. You can imagine what happened. I had to pull off at a gas station in Henryville to clean him up, not before Cooper told me to take a picture. Then he told me I needed to take one with my phone to show daddy.
If you have kids under the age of 6 I would recommend this place. I know it's out of the way a bit but it's something different and there are things for just about every age up to 6 or 7. If you take the interstate to Scottsburg, make a left, it's on the left across from Walmart.
I'll leave you with one last photo of my little cutie. I was unloading the car and Cooper put these on Cameron. Love my little ones!

Some of the best ice cream is at a little stand on 31-toward Austin. It is not far off of 56. Called Lickity Split.
