family time at a museum

creative instruments

bunnies, pigs, cows, sheep,
goats, and turkeys

the kids were super excited to pet the donkey
(aka the hee haw)

kinsey is old enough now that if she
misses her nap she just goes with
the flow...she's ALWAYS been great at

the butterfly house

special treat they chose: blue gatorade
(no red 40)

our 'hike'

i love how the rays hit his 'ta da'

the water pumps were really neat (and Braden's favorite thing!)

a square that can roll, and a new farm animal area

Memories: great weather, gorgeous skies, tunnels, chimes, water pumps, red wolves, a black bear, lemurs, petting a donkey, experimenting with the weather (tornados, hurricanes, floods), learning about earthquakes, ball room, building with kaplan blocks to show the 'domino effect', kaplan towers, rock climbing, blue gatorade, beautiful butterflies, strange birds, owls, scary insects, mountain climbing, racing and chasing on the bridges, sailing the boats, alligators, trains, smiles, giggles, hugs, piggy back rides, space ships, fiber optics, technology, snakes, uv ray experiments (VERY cool), demonstration about seatbelts (mock accident), walking hand and hand, and most of all family time.

Chuck E. Cheese

Poppy and I had a great time playing air hockey with

The kids had so much fun and were able to ride anything they
wanted to right away because we went when it was first opened
and there weren't many people there.

daddy's beloved Ms. Pac Man (which he's
VERY good at!) and Braden practicing

all of us (Nonny included)
had a great time playing skee
ball. Kinsey had a couple mishaps
and THREW the ball but no
harm was done:)
