Robot Friends


As Jim has also just posted about, yesterday we went down to OMSI (the children's science museum) to see the Robot exhibit. As you see above, we had some meaningful conversation with new friends. I love OMSI, and every time my niece Izzy visits I take her there -- over spring break we went to the Animation exhibit and made our own stop-motion dance movie; previously it was the "Animal Grossology" exhibit -- all the grossest things about critters. Great stuff! Usually we also see an Omnimax movie on the huge dome screen (a crazy-gorgeous experience!), and buy stuff from the great gift shop. like freeze-dried icecream sandwiches! I think we should all remember, even if we don't have kids of our own, to either borrow them as an excuse to do kid-stuff, or just unashamedly do kid-stuff anyway!

Yay to kids stuff indeed! Yesterday was a fun one indeed for tapping into the inner kid. A few hours after the OMSI experience we saw Superman Returns (Laini REALLY wanted to see it, but I wasn't even aware there was a new Superman movie?!) (yeah right!).

I'm embarrassed to say that while living in PDX for six years, I never once went to OMSI...shameful! But, hey, we're heading to Portland tomorrow (last minute trip!)...and I can't wait! :)

Yes for kid stuff!! I was trying to find kids to babysit to go see the Spongebob 4-D movie at the aquarium, but I brought some friends my age instead, and it was lovely. I ADORE this robot!! What a fantastic picture! Thanks for the smile!

Thanks for all the great ideas of where to take the kids when we visit my brother! Some of the other things they remind you of: How good peanut butter actually can taste ... graham crackers too ... how quenching Kool Aid can be and ... most important ... how fun a squirt gun fight really is! Wish I could have had some of those lovely cherries and raspberries, not to mention the banana splits! The tables are lovely, hope your hands feel better soon!
