Great Day At The Science Center

Today Katy and I took the girls to the St. Louis Science Center. I haven't been there for a couple of years and was very impressed with what they have to offer everyone. The first photo is a interesting take of the map of the world.

Here is me showing Maddie some of the the stuffed critters like porcupines, beavers, raccoons, peacocks, etc. Normally I think those stuffed animals are pretty gross, but for some reason these didn't seem that way. They had a few things out for the children to touch like a turtles shell. She found it all very interesting and was not afraid of anything.

She got to spend an hour in The Discovery Center. You have to buy tickets ($3.50 each) and they only allow 35 people in there at a time. It was so worth it because they have the best toys I have ever seen. The little kid came out in me. I wanted to play with everything!

Here is an area where they can see a little of what it is like to be a Dr. We didn't go over there because it was more for the older children. But it looked like a great place for them to learn some things.

Maddie enjoying all the fake bugs that she can put in dishes and examine with the magnifying glasses.

She decided two magnifiers were better than one.

Lego structure of The Arch.

Another fun thing for a basement wall.

These weren't in the Discovery Room.. but outside near the walk-over area of the highway to the Planetarium. There were lots of large blocks to make shapes with. I was surprised at her age she was so fascinated with these and wanted to try and do what the others were doing. We didn't go to the Planetarium.. but let Maddie view the highway and she showed no fear. I was dizzy.

Kayla just enjoyed riding in her stroller. If you ever come to St. Louis I hope you go see The Science Center. You won't be disappointed.

The science center looks so fun. I love taking the grandkids to these kinds of places. So glad you showed up pics and Maddie reminds me more and more of Holly every day.

Kayla is so adorable! wow.

I'm glad you had a good time. I think those places are really great for kids - which is why I don't go LOL (there's a reason I don't have children - she said darkly). Heh.

Those crocs on Maddie's little feet are the CUTEST things! Oh my word.

Your girls are so cute! I'm glad you enjoyed the day and got to play with all the exhibits.

We have a science center like that here too. It's great that kids can touch and learn. You never know what will be sparked, inspiration and invention.

It sounds like you and the girls had a fun day. And the lego of the Arch is great, I find it amazing what other people can do with legos.

The girls are growing fast, and so cute.

Oh that looks fun! The girls are so cute! Love the ones of Maddie with the magnifying glasses.. Looks like such a great place to take kids. I like the $3.50 charge.. that's very reasonable.

Hi Brenda! What a great place to take the kids! Sounds like you all had fun!

The girl's are so beautiful! I can't believe how big that Kayla has doesn't take long, does it? I'm sure you are enjoying them so much.

Kelli is expecting about 5 weeks. We are all thrilled to welcome a new baby girl, Phoebe...into the family. She is sooooo...gonna be spoiled....just like the rest of them!

Gonna try & drop you an e-mail. I miss you girl! Take care & God bless.
