We had an awesome day (weather-wise) during spring break to go on a little field trip to the science center. We knew that we needed to get it in before the baby came and this was the perfect opportunity. We were inspired to go really because it was Lincoln's 4th birthday and he wanted to go see the flying Rah-Rah (dinosaur) movie at the IMAX.
We managed to get out of the house around 10:30 am with bottles, sippy cups, snacks, drinks, lunches, diapers and everything else we could think of like extra clothes in case someone blew up their diaper.
We had lunch in the fantastic rose garden by the fountain and can you believe it-- no one fell in.
Everyone had a great time and there was quite a lot to do and see from mechanical and technological things to creatures and habitats.
One of the kid's favorites was the "Hurricane Machine".
They also enjoyed the IMAX movie since we all had to wear our 3D glasses and we got these giant bags of popcorn.
And maybe the best part of the whole day was that my Hubby and I enjoyed a couple of iced coffees as several of the kids knocked out and napped while we chitchatted on our way home.
And the traffic wasn't too bad either...
