California Science Center

You know how sometimes an idea sounds like a lot of fun… and then you remember half your kids are still toddlers?  Yeah.  Well, it really wasn’t all bad.  I asked Allison if she had a little bit of fun, to which she replied, “Oh, mom… I had a great time!  Why did you say just a little?”  Aw, kids are great!  I guess it was just me who was a little stressed fighting the crowds, pushing a stroller, and running to the bathroom every 15 minutes for a 3 year old with an upset tummy.  (I won’t even tell you how loud the screaming was in the crowded elevator as I tried to find the bathroom… again.)

A video on how astronauts go to the bathroom… great stuff!

Seeing the space shuttle really was spectacular.  I only wish I could have spent more time reading about it.  Incredible!

Picnic lunch in front of the rose gardens.  Lovely.

Before we arrived, Allison guessed we would see a Wright Brother plane.  I told her probably not because I believed it was in the Smithsonian.  Turns out she was at least half right; they had a replica which was cool to see.  We LOVED reading about the Wright Brothers in school this past year; I highly recommend it to you!

We ended by seeing the fishies.  I think we may have seen 10% of the entire museum.  It is massive.  I’d love to send my husband with the older two some time.

We left just as the power went out, so we had to carry the stroller with a sleeping 3 year old down the stairs.  I was so thankful we didn’t get stuck in the elevator!  And, thankful for little traffic both there and home; and very well-behaved kids on both drives.  Gotta love adventures like these!
