Have I ever mentioned that I love Boston? Seriously, this town is pretty awesome. We have stuff like the Boston Grown-Ups Museum, where the Children’s Museum opens up for an adult-only night. I was so excited when I heard about it–I would finally get the chance to climb the three-story rope structure!
It turned out that the structure was full of small spaces that I could barely fit through (almost as if it were designed for kids or something). Between that and the large number of people trying to fit through it at once, I started feeling claustrophobic and had to get out pretty quickly–but at least I went in it, which is still pretty awesome.
Of course, for such a night, I had to go all-out with childhood-inspired colorfulness.
Dress: Marimekko, thrifted, leggings: Domino Dollhouse, shoes: Skechers via Woman Within, purse: LeSportSac via eBay, bow: the Velvet Village, necklace: eBay (I agree with Leah, cheap statement necklaces from eBay are the best!), bangles: Torrid and Deb, pink star wristband: really old Hot Topic, white rhinestone wristband: So Good, earrings: Claire’s, rings: really really old (nearly all of the rings I wear these days are ones I’ve had since high school…I don’t know why!)
One of my favorite parts of the museum = the bubble room.
There was a dance floor where you could play games like Tetris with your feet. How cool is that?
At the face-painting station, Steve turned himself into a (ridiculously adorable) lion. 🙂
Finally, a chance to sit in construction equipment without having to trespass onto a construction site!
This pipe reminded me of the Keystone XL and other oil pipelines, so I gave it a big thumbs-down.
Hanging out with a bunch of our friends:
Overall, it was a fun night of playfulness and adventure, a good time spent with Steve and friends, and a reminder of how freaking awesome my city is. (I got so many compliments on my outfit too, which is always fun!)
This picture of me and Steve at the end of the night came out blurry, but I still love it:
