Arizona Science Center

We took a family trip to the Arizona Science Center last weekend.  It turned out to be really fun, but also cemented in my mind that I am not the "science" type...I'm the creative one, through and through....and as fun as it is to learn about the other stuff, I found myself constantly wanting the boys to hurry up and get through the exhibits.  I have a feeling this will be mostly Daddy's field trips :-)

We did a wheelchair race...Jim beat me, but we were both dying by the end of the's amazing how difficult those are to push.  Gives you a whole new appreciation for people in chairs.

My favourite part was the IMAX movie on dolphins.  Very cool.  Both boys did well sitting through the 45 minute movie...surprisingly, Jake did better than Andrew.

The highlight of the day though was the giant stomach slide that of course, just happened to gurgle, burp, and fart whenever you slid down it.  It's the perfect place for boys....we had to pry them out of there to get them to the movie on time.

All in all, it was a really fun morning together :-)

I hope you're ready for's the first of my "31 Days to Getting Fit" series...I'm EXCITED!

Have a great Friday!



  1. Fun! Did you guys visit the weather exhibit? Our kids loved experiencing the elements!

  2. The boys will have to take Grandma and Grandpa to this place next time we come down. Looks like a lot of fun!

  3. I love that stomach! Lily loved it too. :p
