The L.A.M.E Museum

Occasionally, my children and I enjoy a bit of culture. Or learning. Or anything that is different from the 4 walls of our home. Courtney and I took the kids to the "Learning Atmosphere for Mostly Everyone Museum". The L.A.M.E Museum (aka the California Science Center) All the Exhibits were classified as "Brought right over from Korea, everything new", or, B.R.O.K.E.N.
Hanging with Court in a place
where I can take some pics with good light
is always fun though, no matter what.

This giant twisty tube you could shout through like a microphone was by far the most popular, and almost the only completely intact exhibit.

We simulated being drops of water through the universe in this. Being evaporated into the air and turning into rain was really fun until we raindrops hit the river and got pooped on by a river bathing cow. I AM NOT MAKING THAT UP.

One other fun thing was getting to make our own slime.
This man, who appears to be extremely high on life,
showed us how to do it.

Joseph's ladder, I think this is called. I don't know why my kids thought this was so cool, when they are completely unimpressed when I take an empty soda bottle and blow across the top of it. Same principle, but moms are just not cool.
