First Summer Field Trip
Grandma and Grandpa took us all to a great museum in Tampa called MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) and the kids loved it. They have a whole section called Kids in Charge! which of course, they enjoyed.
The kids did some silly stuff like:
- lying on nails:
- losing their heads, er, bodies:
- sticking to walls:
- playing with "food":
- building stuff:
- making shadows on the wall, playing tug-of-war and seeing and doing lots of other cool and fun stuff!
It took a few hours but we were finally able to drag the kids away to other parts of the museum - the 2nd favorite of the day was "Disasterville" where our family got to experience a tornado, housefire and hurricane all in one hour!!
But don't worry - we had rescue workers handy! (I think Caleb's expression is because the sheer magnitude of his job is beginning to sink in...)
Getting blown away - Alyssa wanted NO part of it...
I can't blame her - the wind inside went up to 80MPH!!
But with all these disasters the only stressful time was figuring out what small (er, cheap) trinket to pick up at the gift shop :) I'm smiling because we're done and at the checkout! We settled on mugs with the girls names on it - of course none of them said "Julianna" so we went with "Anna" - hopefully a Sharpie will fill in the rest...
At least someone was happy:
My sad attempt at getting a shot of the kids with the cool flowers - no one really wanted to cooperate.
Thanks Mom and Dad (Grandma and Grandpa) for a great day at the museum. We can't wait till we get to go again.
