Summer Adventures 2013, Week 2

2013 June 21
by Sarah

Two weeks ago for our weekly summer adventure, we headed across the river into Kentucky for a trip to Totter’s Otterville. I snagged a great deal from Groupon last month that gave us 4 child admissions (adults are always free!) for $14, which is just over 50% off. Otterville is made up of different rooms for themed, interactive play. There are several rooms for pretend play (kitchen, grocery store, vet clinic, house), a water table, trains, blocks, legos, dance studio, an outdoor magnetic fishing pond, trolley rides, and a giant indoor climber and ball pit, and more.

We started at the conveyor belt and I think Sam could have stayed there all morning if I hadn’t taken him to explore other areas. His favorite part was putting the foam blocks into the hole. Over and over and over.

We looked at a few more of the rooms before making our way outside for the trolley.

The trolley was also a big hit. He asked for more and started to meltdown when we got off so we got right back on for another circuit. This time I gave him plenty of advance warning that we would be getting off and he was able to say bye-bye to the train without any fuss.

I don’t have any pictures of the outdoor magnetic fishing pond because I had to do all the actual catching of fish, but we’ll be doing that one again when we go back.

Sam found the ball pit pretty intimidating, but he eventually got in once some of the bigger, louder kids got out. Unfortunately, the other kid in there at the time called for his grandma to come in and she intimidated Sam too. So the ball bit didn’t last long, but the steps and slide on the climber were more his speed.

Honestly, I was a little disappointed that some things seemed a little more gently used than I expected, but it’s still a great place for kids to just explore, play, and be kids. I think it’s better for the 3 and up crowd. Sam doesn’t do much imaginative play yet and many of the rooms were geared that way. Also, I think they have more extra things happening on weekends (live performances, longer times for the trolley, etc.) However, we’ll be going back!

    Well I guess my post didn’t go through – I see what you mean with Sam being spooked by the big kids on the video – “Mama!”. Thanks for sharing so we can enjoy the adventures, too!

    That looks like such a fun place for kids! I love the little grocery store, ha. Kid-eye level. :)

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out
    pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m
    not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Thank you

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  7. September 18, 2014

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
