But on to our day at the museum. The boys really enjoyed their time but it was a little old for them. I'm anxious to go back when they are a bit older.
The first exhibit we went to was one about weather. They had this tornado and John was just fascinated with this. They also had exhibits about avalanches, thunderstorms and lightening, but the tornado was John's favorite.
John wanted to get in one of these planes hanging from the ceiling. He didn't understand why they would have these planes there if you couldn't get in them.
Once John saw what was underneath the planes he totally forgot about wanting to ride in the planes. Underneath was a huge train exhibit. John and Gus loved watching the trains go through the tiny cities.
Gus asked everyone to pick him up. He sure loved watching the trains with his Great Grandpa.

It didn't take long for the boys to figure out that if you stepped on the colored strips it would make a sound. It was kinda like a big keyboard. We stayed here for a LONG time.
The funny mirrors were also a big hit.
For most of the mirrors poor little Gus was too short for them to make him look funny.
As if we needed that head to get any bigger.
Then we went to an exhibit about farming.
These John Deere tires are huge! Jimmy looks pretty comfortable there.
I always have hope that we can get a decent picture with all of the kids...
Oh well. Maybe next time.
