Musical Petting Zoo

Not only did my BIG boys have the day off from school on Monday, but Tuesday was a teacher workday!!  I decided it would be fun to take the kids uptown, and spend the morning visiting ImaginOn.  
ImaginOn is the COOLEST library EVER and one of our all-time favorite places to visit in our city!
 Our sweet neighbor, Jack was hanging out with us for the day too, and my boys were so excited to have him come along with us as well!  
The Charlotte Symphony Guild was at the library putting on their "Musical Petting Zoo"!  

 The kids each had a chance to look at, listen to, and try out a variety of 
orchestra instruments.
The brass instruments were cool,  and the string instruments were neat, BUT the percussion instruments ROCKED!! Or at least, that's what my kids thought;)
After a rather "melodic" morning at the library, we hit up good ole' Mickey D's on our way home for a super cool treat and some fun on the indoor playground! 
And with sweet smiles all around, I'd have to say our day off was quite "harmonious"

Looks like a fun place to take kids. Wish we had something like that here.

I have seen this at ImaginOn and have wanted to take the kids! Maybe I will take them soon!

How FUN! Would you believe we have never been to ImaginOn?!! Have to go sometime soon! My kids would love the musical petting zoo!! What a cool idea & neat way to introduce little ones to music! I'll have to show Jack these photos of the kids trying out a trombone, he will get a kick out of that!!

We met, briefly at ImaginOn. My son was reading his "sentence" on the magnetic board. How funny that we "meet" again.

We met, ever so briefly, at this event. My son was reading his "sentence" on the magnetic board. It is nice to "see" you again.
