Annie loves going to the Hayden Planetarium. Seriously, I've seen Journey to the Stars at least 30 times. Afterward we make our way across the street for a little tire swing relaxation at the Diana Ross Playground. Made mostly out of wood and metal, this playground has an old-school feel. The girls and I like to play follow the leader, hopping from one wooden block to the next. When that gets old we'll try to dig a hole to China in the sandbox. The park can get really crowded due to its proximity to the museum, so make sure to keep your belongings close.
