Science World

On Friday we went with Ben and Syndi to Science World in Vancouver. Syndi always tells me about great places to go and when to get the best price. I am always looking for a bargain and this definitly was one! We got in for $30 U.S. for the whole family! Usually it is $17 per person U.S. Thanks for the heads up! We got to use her GPS for the trip and let me tell you it is blind faith but it took us straight there. There was so much to do and see we had a difficult time making it past the exhibits by the coat racks. The boys especially loved the wheel chair races and simulated downhill skiing.
I had Libby with me most of the time but Sean took over when my back started to ache. She was very content and slept in the sling most of the time. Ohhhh, she is so sweet. Check Syndi's blog for a great picture of her.

We loved this part of the museum because there was so much to explore and hands on to touch. I thought it was funny that there was a large scale with a fulcrum and it measured in feet (we were in Canada they don't use that there) I also realized that after I was talking with a lady and she asked me how big Libby was that when I answered 10 pounds 13oz it ment nothing to her. Oh well. I really need to work on the conversions with the children so that I can learn them.

Ruby had a great time and was very busy it was difficult to keep track of her.

I look at Taylor daily and am amazed at how much she is growing. I am so excited that as she learns more I can share that with her. I was thrilled that she loved the museum as much as the younger children and got as much if not more out of the experience. One of the things I love the most about homeschooling is the multi-generational learning.

I got a hilarious picture of Ruby running where her pig tails were flying behind her but this one is where Erik was blowing her with a 'vacuum' ment for blowing the wind mills. She laughed so hard, and Erik enjoyed it as well.

Our last stop was at Lego land. Again, check Syndi's blog for great pictures of this area it truly is amazing what they can do with Legos. The children made lego cars and raced them pinewood derby style down the track! They got to sit in this lego car and watch themselves race on the screen.
We had so much fun and I was able to relax knowing that my dinner was already made and waiting at home in the crockpot! Yes I love my crockpot. We enjoyed cranberry roast beef and mashed potatos and gravy, with buttermilk biscuits cauliflower. A great end to a marvelous day!
