A day at Explora

Andy made some smaller bubbles when he wasn't chasing the big bubble.
Andy almost succeeded with a full-body bubble - you can just see it at the top of the poles around him. I got this shot just as it popped.
Dan at the finish line with his sail car -- always one of our favorite areas at Explora.

Yesterday, after a lazy morning, we headed out by bus to Explora. The boys had hoped, being closed all of last week, there would be new exhibits. We did find one new thing, in the last few minutes before the museum closed, but I forgot to get any pictures of it. Next time we go, they'll have changed the whole area now about electricity to exhibits on sound, I'll get pictures of it all.

We spent almost 4 hours there -- trains, gears, domino lines, a new exhibit on sound, the water table, and outdoor huge bubble set-up are the things I remember, tho we did so much more. Gary joined us there and we stayed until closing time.

Andy and I spent time at the puzzle cafe, doing several puzzles he'd recently solved and wanted to show me. We also spent a long time trying to solve another puzzle -- one he'd managed to do before, but which involves so many steps it's impossible to remember it every time.
