I’m still battling post-flu fatigue and we have so much sorting and purging to do around our apartment…but when we decided to check out a science museum for a few hours on Saturday, something about it felt oh-so-right.
I pretty much put a moratorium on science museum visits after our vacation this summer when we hit three in one week…but now that the cold months are here, and apple picking is over, and the beach is too cold…I was ready to begin museum season again. And this time with a new one we’ve never seen before. Liberty Science Center is in Jersey City and faces the back of the Statue of Liberty.
The boys fiddled with gadgets and gizmos for a few hours…
… and played with all kinds of exhibits.
One of the exhibits was about Skyscrapers.
And Andrew practiced walking the beams. He made it all the way out, got totally spooked and the person running the exhibit ended up walking out to escort him back. And his verdict? “it was GREAT!” No shame in fear, I guess.
Isaac could have played with this beach ball in the wind for hours. He was cracking up at the ball floating all around and flying about.
Another exhibit we checked out was called the “Touch Tunnel”. The “Touch Tunnel” is a pitch black maze that you crawl through and find your way out only through your sense of touch. There were cameras inside so we could see what was going on…and so the operators could assist anyone that got scared. This exhibit didn’t spook Andrew at all. :)
Also this weekend? Tess’s pink and purple superhero birthday party…which was an adorable, heroic success.
Little by little things are returning to normal around here. And THAT is nice.
