This week we chose our own adventure at the Museum of Science and Nature.

We basked on the sun...



without getting hot.



Our shadows watched...



while (short lasting) impressions were made.



The sky was searched for satellites...



and lines were transformed into circles by the blink of an eye.



The meterologists met for a department meeting...



during a hands on lesson in UV light.



Bubbles burst like fireworks...



into continents on a soapy sea.



Gentle breezes suspended play in mid-air...



as a storm brewed behind glass.



Our adventure was as large as the creatures we encountered.



On Sunday, please visit Lotus to choose another adventure.

What a magnificent photo story!

Suz Broughton said...

This looks like so much fun. This is what I love about blogs--this kind of storytelling. We have a place like this in OC called The Discovery Center that my kids love. "Almost as fun as Build A Bear!" was my daughter's comment. Which is a huge compliment!
PS see your son in Crocs. What did we do without them?

Awesome pictures! So impressed! ...And in such need of blogging lessons...

I know you probably have 30 of these, but I have something for you....

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

So, Reid's blowing hair in that photo reminds me of my high school crush's part and cut. Yeah, I just really wrote that. Yikes.

KEEP BELIEVING

You make me want a time machine for my kids.

a wonderful tale.

see? i had something nice to say.

i COULD have made a snide remark about how today is friday...and not sunday, which is the day that weekly winners is SUPPOSED to be ... but then it would negate the niceness of my comment.

and we dont want that.

Oh I love these places. Seems everywhere I have lived (which is everywhere) has a science center of some sort. IS there nothing more joyful than seeing the wonder of the universe in a boys eyes? Oh and the bubbles! Who knew water and a little dishwashing soap was so amazing!!!

JenniBeanV said...

Oh you got some GREAT shots! What an awesome place!

On a limb with Claudia said...

Wow!! Look at the babies red hair! (Sorry, I get all the 'r's mixed up - I know - I suck.) That is such a fun time. I love going to our natural history museum!

((hug)) May the memories of this summer last a lifetime.

Christine said...

Kiki said...

Little guy in crocs.. is about as cute as the make 'em!

Adorable.. especially love the window pic.

Pinky said...

What kind of vitamins do you take?
Do they contain large amounts of caffeine and sedatives that somehow work simultaneously? Because that's what I'd need to take my kids out as often as you do.
I admire you, sista.

Gin said...

I love the story/picture montage. Perfect!!!

Great photos and story!

Susan said...

What a beautiful photo story!! I want to do one like that next week! Or better yet - when you go out on your next outing... can I come too? :) Great photos! Was the bubbles really forced to form the continents or did it look like that?

Smoochiefrog said...

What cute kiddos!

Karen MEG said...

Holly, I love your photo stories... always so magical!!!
What a wonderful time!

tiff said...

This was excellent.
I love that we feel included in the whole excursion.
Looks like a wonderful day was had by all.

MiLeTTe said...

i want to go there too!

your question about entrecard : do i like it ? the truth is at first i was eager about it. and i was able to do the 300 drops per day. but when i heard about bounce rate, i changed my mind. entrecard increases your bounce rate. because most of the droppers just visit your blog to drop their cards and then close their browser. that increase their bounce rate. that's just my thought.

here are my other entrecard entries :

Gattina said...

That must have been a wonderful experience for the children !

JCK said...

Whenever I read your posts I always think...now, SHE would be fun to have a playdate with. You ALWAYS do such fun stuff!

Colleen said...

Looks like you & the kiddos had a blast! Love it in the shot of the suspended ping pong ball you can see the boy's hair parted in the middle...cute!

Suzie said...

What a fun day

connie said...

Looks like a fun adventure for all :) My faves are the 2cd one & the meterologist one :)

I love the shadow shot the best! Looks like you all had a blast!

Burgh Baby said...

Shadow watching is absolutely a winner!

Karen said...

As I was reading your post, my 3-year-old got her hand caught in our "impression maker". What a coincidence!

Valarie said...

Great pictures, I think the bubble one is my favorite. :)

Sue said...

Hand prints are cool. We have one of those at home (only smaller). Your museum looks a lot like the Exploratorium in SF. Kids love it. I just try not to lose any of them.

Judith Shakespeare said...

Y'all looked like you had a wonderful time! That third picture is perfection. Seriously. :)

ya ya's mom said...

looks like a fun time. thanks for visiting my weekly winners!

Your photo stories always make me smile. My favorite is the meeting of the meteorologists!

Brea said...

Now, we all know that us Texans love our bacon as much as the next person ... but with PEANUT BUTTER?? Hmmmmm ... interesting ...

Hey, gotta love little boys! There's nothing better (or more interesting) in life. :)
