discovery science center
it is our last week of summer vacation and i do not want to sit at home. we are trying to have as much fun as possible this week. today i took the kids to the discovery science center. i renewed our membership for the year. all my kids really love going there.
i was super happy to find the place pretty empty. mason, dahlia, and connor loved looking at all the exhibits. it has been a while since we have been there so there were a lot of new ones. they had one teaching the kids about endangered species and how to protect them. it had a funny station where the kids could dress up like turtles and crawl through tunnels. there was also connor's favorite dinosaur exhibit outside. this time the kids got to get a wand and a map and run around looking for fossils. when they would find one on the map they could point the wand at it and it would record the find.
we stayed until the place closed and the kids still were not ready to leave. we usually visit my mom, christina, and zena after we leave but zena was sick so we just went home. that was fine with me. it gave me time to make dinner and give them bathes before bed.
