INK: Children’s Museum

In this post: A day trip to the Interactive Neighborhood for Kids, INK, a children’s museum in Gainesville, Ga. 

Hello, dear ones! My mom, the kids, and I found a gem a few hours away. The Interactive Neighborhood for Kids (INK) was worth the trip. We spent three hours exploring the children’s museum. You get to explore it a bit quicker and from the comfort of home!

What’s better than pretending to be a fireman, doctor, and pilot? Playing pretend with REAL doctor’s equipment, a REAL fire truck, and a REAL airplane! 

I’m so excited to share this trip with you! I apologize for the low quality of some of the pictures. I left my camera at home and had to use Mom’s phone. I was able to get several pictures though so I’m happy. You can plan your own trip to INK by visiting the link below:
