A Few From Today

 We've had a relatively lazy day.  The Suens came to visit (although I neglected to take any pics during that time), and we have played a LOT of games.  The kids are all really into games these days, and every day holds countless rounds of their favorites.  UNO, chess, checkers, Sequence for kids, Yahtzee Jr., Guess Who, Monopoly Jr., and Scrabble Scoop are the current list-toppers. 

I started the day with some grocery-shopping with this guy...


I recently found Monopoly Jr. at Goodwill for .99 and it was pretty much the best money I have spent in a long time.  They love it. 



And our generous friends, the Tripletts, passed this map along to us temporarily.  The kids love it, and we spent a good portion of this afternoon googling geographical information that we thought we knew but apparently had forgotten!

Museum of Science & Industry


 Yesterday, we braved the no-school-day crowds and spent the day at the MSI.  Despite lots of lines and lots of people, we had a fun day.  We spent most of the day there - about 6 hours - and got to see and do a lot of great things.  Here are some of the highlights...

The Zephyr...high on the favorites list for all the kids...

 
 
...despite Shane's melancholy face.

 

 






Cool hologram guy...


 Silly mirrors in the circus hall...




I-Spy window...


 The submarine exhibit was pretty neat!







 The Space Center was super cool also...






















In his element!


 




 Chickies!  Seeing these babies made us super excited to hatch our own again this Spring...


Wright Brothers' plane and The Transportation Gallery...Shane said..."I know that plane from my book!"






Hello, this is Traffic Control...
 I made the kids wait in line with me to see the Your Beginning exhibit...they were patient troopers and were in awe of the babies, despite not fully understanding the whole concept...


 Ice Cream at Yesterday's Main Street...

Waiting in yet another line...tired kids.

















Waiting for the big kids as they explore the Zephyr one last time.  This little girl was exhausted (so was her mama).  She was asleep in the van before we even made it out of the parking garage (thankfully I stayed awake on the drive home!)...


 Just for fun, check out some pictures from the last time we visited this museum by clicking here!
