So here is our day in pics. I like to try to do one new thing every day while we are here, even if that just means eating at a place we don't have in Kansas City, meeting someone new, going somewhere new.
|Sometimes we end the day with swimming and sometimes we start it that way. Today the kids hit the pool before we went to the museum.|
|Then we hit the highway and made it downtown to meet up with my new writer friend, Jill Morgenstern.|
|My friend Jon called these "mesmerizing" ... and they are. The kids just sat and watched the pendulum swing back and forth until eventually it would knock down a dealy-jobber.|
|Some gorgeous gems in an exhibit|
|My Mommy crown|
|We need this at our house ... helps understand the Periodic Table of the Elements way better than I ever learned it in school!|
|The geovator. You get inside and pretend to go down into the earth where they drill oil and learn all about the process.|
|Too late to go on that cool grassy trail hill but I got a pic in front of it. They were tired and ready for the trek home on the 45 South.|
|I got all adventurous on the way home and wanted to try out the Sam Houston, or the Beltway or the 8. Every highway has like 76 names here. I paid a whole lot of money to drive on it but we got to go over a huge bridge and come back over it.|
And here ends another lovely day in paradise. For real this place is growing on me.
