Another cool part was the whispering room. Turns out I was wrong and Chris has been to the museum before...and one of the things he remembers about it was this neat room. Chris and Chayce stood on one end of the room facing this curved wall thing and Vann and I stood on the other end of the room facing another curved wall thing. We were facing opposite directions so, we couldn't see each other. Then you whisper. And you can hear the person whispering loud and clear because of how the sound waves bounce off this curved thing. Pretty cool!
The exhibit, YOU! The Experience, was super cool. They showed the insides of your body...muscles, digestive tract, everything. Sounds gross, but it was neat. The coolest part, for me, was the area where they showed fetuses at different stages of a pregnancy, ranging from like 3 weeks up until 38 weeks (I may be wrong on the weeks...so don't mark my words). There were probably 15 or so different babies. It's amazing how much is developed so early in the pregnancy...and I already knew this, of course, but to actually see the teeny tiny baby with hands and feet...just amazing! I got teary eyed if I thought too hard about what I was really looking at...it's definitely something I will remember for a long time.
Gosh, there was so much neat stuff to see I could sit here all day and list it off. So, instead I'll just show you some of the pics I took...

|Playing in the train car|
|On the trolley car...notice the Star Wars shirts...got them the other night when we bought the jammies.|
|The chicks that were just hatching|
|Playing in the Dr Seuss area|
|Building with a bunch of silly pieces|
|They were in the wind tunnel...the wind blows up to 80 miles an hour! They were laughing so loudly that people around us stopped to watch them...and they started laughing too!|
|Sitting on a cow in the farm area|
|Changed my camera setting|
|Playing in the Idea Factory before we left. Had all kinds of stuff you'd see at a children's museum.|
|Vann was pumping this lever to make the funnel appear...|
|He did it till he got it all the way to the top!|
Today, I did some shopping. Got some more Christmas stuff for the boys. Mostly stocking stuffers...lots of action figures. We have really large stockings so, it takes quite a bit to fill them up. I think the stocking is as big as Chayce! Everyone in my fam has the same stockings. My grandma makes them for us when we're born...such a fun tradition...I love it!
What did you do this weekend?
