Lied's Children Museum

We went to a couple Museum's with my folks when they were here. One of them being Lied's. The kids had so much fun... and so did we! It's basically a science museum, and lots of fun. My favorite part was the bubble center, where you can make ginormous bubbles, put yourself inside bubbles, and I taught the boys that if they got their arms and hands wet first they could even blow bubbles through their fingers and hold bubbles in their hands. Ezra loved the ball tubes, where you stick a ball in this tube and it gets sucked into the air and falls down even more tubes and stuff. They had this huge stringless harp that had lazer eyes instead and made actual harp music. They have these water tables as well, that you can put plastic inserts into and make tunnels to float rubber duckies down. They only had one duck, so we raced two tubes of lip gloss. Mosiah loves to color, it's one of his favorite things, so he loved the table that lights up and you put a paper on it and draw. I think it's for tracing, but he just loved to draw all over his paper. Nana kept his artwork as a souvenier. They had this green screen where you can play sports like volleyball, hockey, and socker, and then it's broadcasted on a big screen tv so everyone can watch. That was Liam's favorite. I think Bill really enjoyed playing with the balls with Ezra. They also had this wind tunnel that reaches really high wind speeds, you feel like you're in a hurricane. That was cool. We did the karaoke room with Nana, and we sang lots of fun songs, including "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" and "Wheels on the bus". Anyways, lots of cool stuf, as you can see.
