Really Cool

Since I have been "on call" for Federal Jury Duty all summer long, we really weren't able to plan a vacation as we didn't know what my jury duty status was going to be week to week.  So when I got the message last week that my term of service had come to and end a week early we jumped at the chance to take a long weekend before RR went back to school.

As part of our long weekend on Monday we went to the Connecticut Science Center.  I had heard good reviews from a co-worker (who enjoyed it so much he got his family a season pass) and the "Dinosaur's Unearthed" exhibit was scheduled to depart on Sept 2nd.

We arrived and got excellent parking just before they opened.  It was $52 for the four of us for the day ($19 per adult, $14 for RR and TT was free) and it was so worth it.  We were there for a little over 5 hours, and started the exhibits (after visiting the Kid Space, right at the entrance) from top to bottom, pausing about mid way through for a light lunch (which was mediocre and over priced for what it was, but really we didn't go for the cuisine; in the future we'll probably bring our own).  The kids had a blast, we had a blast; and in my book any place that amuses, entertains and engages both boys (with their 7 year age gap) is a double thumbs up.

All suited up and ready to play in the water.

Oh yeah, TT heaven.  Water and balls.

RR, you can tell he's thinking - his tongue is sticking out.  

"I got this covered Mommy"

"Where are all the balls going?"

"Ohhhh... brother get me more."

Yup, it was wet.

It's a dirty trick, you can't get the balls out of the ramp (except at the bottom).
