Next Size Down, Done!
Yesterday we went to the Dallas Museum of Nature and Science (AKA Ricky and Mindy's Museum*) to see the Science of Spying exhibit. I don't know if this museum is strictly a children's museum, but they are definitely a hands on kind of museum and this exhibit is no different. (In contrast, the Spy Museum in Washington, DC is less hands on, more stuff in glass cases, and more geared towards an older audience.) Caleb got to play with interactive stuff, based around spying and had a blast. For example, at one point he had to choose between three possible sites for a meet with another spy and he was given information on the amount of people in the area, the amount of video surveillance, and the number of exits to choose which site would be the best. Of course we also went through the regular exhibits and played with all of those things too. It was a fun day for everyone.
Have a great weekend!
*A few years ago (Caleb was 4 or 5), we came to Dallas to visit Rick and Mindy and they took us to this museum and as luck would have it, it was reptile weekend. There were snakes and lizards and frogs and all kinds of things all over the museum. Caleb thought it was great and has since called the museum Ricky and Mindy's museum. I didn't realize we were going to the same place until we walked in and I recognized it - no reptiles this time.
