Dallas Science museum

Back in July Kathy, Jennifer, and I took Brooke and Eli to the science museum in Dallas. The kids had so much fun and its the kind of place that we can continue to come back and the kids will be able to enjoy and grow with it. Even months later Brooklyn is still talking about the Dinosaur display!

The moment we came down stairs the first thing we saw was the fire truck! Brooklyn being the girl she is took the chance to play dress up. Eli was a great sport wearing a fireman's hat for a quick picture.

 Next we played in the water room. For the most part it was empty and both Brooke and Eli were able to really enjoy playing in the water.

In the farm room Eli and Brooklyn spent their time collecting eggs, planting seeds, shopping for food, and riding on tractors.

 The last room we played in downstairs (and the most fun) was the bug/ smaller children's play room. on the larger side Brooke checked out the snakes and other bugs, and on the smaller side Eli was able to get down and show off his climbing, standing and scooting skills! :)

 Probably Brooklyn's favorite display of the day. The anti-gravity section. We spent more than our share of time on this one. It took Brooklyn a few tries to figure this one out and also to find that you can not get two balls to "fly" at once.

 These next two pictures describe the funniest moment of the day!
Brooklyn was experimenting with the hole at the top of the cone and just how close she could get the ball, when she accidentally pushed the ball in. In a movie like moment she bent down to look in the hole and..

 Pop the ball came flying out! Brooklyn immediately started in with her deep down, once you start, you cant stop laughing, that had Kathy and I cracking up!
