Museum of Science Expedition

Since mommy and Aki went over to help Ms. Katrina with her baby yesterday, Daddy and I went out to the Museum of Science. I just wanted to ride the Green Line train, but then again, the museum is pretty fun too.

Scary butterflies!
While we were waiting to go into the butterfly room, another daddy said that his daughter is scared of butterflies. I never thought of them that way before, but you know, they are kind of scary, all fluttery and unpredictable!

Owen playing pachinko
We hightailed it out of there to go play pachinko.

We roamed around all the exhibits I haven't seen in a long time. There were lots of new ones, but daddy was especially excited to see this one. An ear measuring camera!

Daddy's ear
2.6 inches.

Ear length versus age by gender
This apparently shows that this shows he doesn't have tiny ears after all...

We saw this little windmill. When it's really going, it can power 25 light bulbs, or one big microwave. Hmm... doesn't sound like much.

After all that sciencing, it was time for some good old fashioned dress up fun...

A bee!
Buzz buzz buzz

I'm a turtle!
I'm Spyrtle the Turtle!

Owen in geologist gear
Wearing the geologist gear. Actually I'm looking for the fireman's coat. Do you think I could be a fireman geologist?

It was a fun day at the Museum, and we didn't even see the real new exhibits. Can we go back tomorrow, daddy?

Sweetie you can be WHATEVER you want to be!

Although when I was considering archeology when I was in 5th grade, I didn't know about "experimental archeology". Going around the world, doing research and recreate stuff from historical records? Now that's fun.
