We spent most of our Saturday in Philly in the Franklin Institute.
We took our time, seeing most every exhibit, having fun touching everything. (And praying we didn’t pick up some virus or the Swine flu!)
We tested the brakes
before we rode on the real steam engine.
We spent plenty of time in the Heart wing.
Here we are making our way through the walk-through heart.
Chuck found out he has
of blood in his body. Interesting.
Brooke has always wanted to be a doctor. She decided to practice a little open heart surgery in preparation for her future career.
Where else will you get to sit on a bone bench?
Or crawl through a blood vessel?
We made sure to get plenty of exercise to keep our hearts beating strong.
In the space wing we made and tested moon rovers
and watched a really cool movie in the plantarium all about the sun. Perfect preparation for our upcoming solar system study.
We had a BOO-last at the Liquid Scare show. Here the children are all molecules in a solid, packed tight together, being quite still.
I forgot to take photos of our faces at age 70, as seen through an age progression machine. That’s probably better left unphotographed, anyway 🙂
I do highly recommend the Institute for lots of science fun.
