Thank you museums

First, a big thank you to the Leonardo for allowing us through their illusion exhibit these laugh-out-loud photos! 



This museum is a treat and has a lot of good stuff for kiddos. We specifically liked the illusion section and the airplane area. Using a green screen was a real treat. Plus, it wasn’t too busy and that’s a double thumbs up!
We love the Discovery Gateway Museum too. I always love going downtown. The parking is easy and the exhibits keep the kids interested. From what I can tell, they remain the same from year to year. 

The Curiosity Museum is great too! Ian could not get enough of the Waterworks area. By the way, that waterproof vest did nothing to keep him dry. I guess that size was for the big kids. Ha!

That poor place is so busy and is constantly used and abused. I always leave realizing they’ve had to take something out and replace it with something simpler (or nothing at all) because kids have used the heck out of it. I guess that’s a testament to how fun and creative it is. 

The Dinosaur Museum in the same spot is cool as well. Never as crowded and never gets old. They have one room with a rotating exhibit and I think they do a good job with the material presented. 

The Aquarium is a hit. We had a season pass for a couple of years and I thought we were done. But the kids wanted to go this summer and it was good to be back. They keep adding new stuff and the baby penguin was fun to see. Plus the shark tube is no longer filled to the gills and one can actually take a decent photo. 

The Tracy Aviary is always cool and the bird show is a must see. It is exceptionally big even though it seems like it’s in this small space within Liberty Park. 

We’ve enjoyed these fun places, only one of which was around when I was a kid (the Aviary). It’s crazy how much this area is growing. And I don’t know how this post became my poor commentary on the museums we’ve visited this summer.  Needless to say, we’ve had a good time visiting these spots.

Fourteen years!


Man, am I glad I met this guy several years ago! We were freshmen in college, trying our best to be confident, cool, and look like we didn’t care too much about anything even though we cared about most everything. When I met Jess, after a few outings, it just clicked. He was so easy to talk to, so funny, so cool without being full of himself. We had lots of fun and we both thought we were hilarious. 

All these years later and we still have fun and think we are hilarious.
