Home Again

We are home from our trip to Florida for my sister’s wedding. The wedding was beautiful as was my sister, Carissa. Hard to believe that 18 years ago she was a flower girl in my wedding. The only craziness was the fact that my brother, Donnie, was involved in a serious car accident on his way to the airport the day of the wedding … but, that is the topic of another post for another day.

Today, I wanted to share with you all a wonderful field trip we took while in Florida. We were able to get away on Thursday and head to Tampa to The Museum of Science and Industry or MOSI as it is known in those parts.

We spent our whole day at this wonderful location. We arrived around 10 am and did not head back to our hotel until 4 pm. We took in a great IMAX called Kilimanjaro on a Domed Screen which really made you feel like you were there (almost like Soarin at Epcot), visited all the exhibits, had lunch and last, but, not least, the Planetarium. The kids are still talking about this great field trip and so want to return … Ava Mae says tomorrow we must drive there. Here is our day in pictures:

All important breakfast before heading to the museum …




Touch a Cloud …


We learned how to milk a cow on this plastic version …



Ava Mae needed no instruction on how to play the drums …




Lexi and Ava Mae were fascinated by this tornado …



Ava Mae’s favorite exhibit was the dinosaur teeth … she said this is what she wants for Christmas.



The kids learned how a green screen works …



And had fun getting to do a forecast …



I forgot what this taught but, we were spinning tops and balancing them on a very thin piece of metal …



Lexi and I experience hurricane force winds inside this tube … our hair looked great for the rest of the day.



Half Devin … Half Lexi …



Ava Mae and Devin playing life size Checkers …

Ancient Egypt Photo Op …



Butterfly Garden … our last stop of the day.

  1. After reading over your blog and seeing all the fun things you do, I was wondering–can I be home-schooled by you too? I am so impressed by your commitment, organization, and creativity!Rebekah
