The Tech Museum

My kids are always asking me when I would take them to the Tech Museum again. We had a family membership years ago, before Molly was born and went a few times during that year. So my kids were really excited when I told them our co-op would be going as one of our field trips. 

 There were quite a few new exhibits and many of the same ones. Even though the kids haven't been for years they could tell me exactly which things were new and which things had only been moved around.
 The other kids wandered around the museum with their friends doing the different activities. I hung out with Molly. She especially enjoyed and stayed at the spots where she was able to move things around or make something happen just by touching it.
 Every once in awhile I would run into Sophie and her friends while following Molly around.
 The boys really enjoyed the space exhibit where they got to move the jet pack and try to lazer the lights.

 I think I watched Molly ride the Earthquake simulator at least 20 times. Somehow I never did take a picture of her on there. That was her favorite spot in the museum. 

It was a fun field trip. My feet were so tired by the end of the 3 hours we spent here. We are still heading into the city every Friday because Ian has Lego League and co-op but we will soon be stopping these weekly trips. We certainly have loved our homeschool co-op and will have to try to find a new one a little nearer to our new home.
