OMSI

Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is a very cool place to visit. We went specifically to see the latest OMNIMAX movie, Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure. Isn't this the perfect complement to our bug studies we've been doing lately?
It was SO COOL! But, before the movie...

Princess played in the sand... explored the forest... gathered acorns to store for the winter...
explored animal footprints... experimented with pulleys... built a castle... that is wheelchair accessible... made a friend in the play area... examined slides under a microscope... assembled a skeleton... and examined it... reported the weather... played at bears catching salmon in the river... and explored play dough. We had a fabulous time and can't wait to go back again soon...but we may just wait until school starts. We homeschoolers like it when it's less crowded.

Phew! I'm tired just reading that post. Sounds like a great time. We have a similar museum here and we prefer too to go after school starts so we have more time to play with the cool stuff.

Seriously, a lot of great stuff! Love Princess' pigtails, she is so cute. Those are mighty big acorns by the way!
