Summer camps, sports practices, music lessons and maybe a road trip or two. Is your family’s summer schedule getting crowded? It’s a good time to remember to carve out time for good old-fashioned play – getting dirty, goofing off and making up your own rules.

For about a year now, two-year old Nchare and his parents – Dr. Nathan and Jenny Chomilo – have been members of Minnesota Children’s Museum. We were excited to hear from this family of medical professionals about their experience as museum members and what play means to them. We recently asked them some questions and we love their answers.
