|What has Lockelan spotted?|
|A large anamatronic T-Rex!|
We then moved to an area about energy. The kids enjoyed a number of the exhibits there.
|I don't think Lockelan learned much about electricity but he loved pushing the button.|
|Matt and Lockelan are putting coal in the fire.|
|William is adding coal too. He was trying to add it faster than Matt.|
|Elora learned how power plants distribute power to neighborhoods.|
|Elora and William tried different windmill designs to see which created the most electricity.|
I really enjoyed the Human Adventure area. It offered a number of activities that showed unusual ways that our senses work. It included various puzzles, brain teasers and optical illusions.
|Lockelan found something he enjoyed.|
|This is a large model of the Tower of Hanoi puzzle. They didn't understand the game but they loved moving the large discs.|
|Elora loved the classic mirror illusion where it looked like she was flying.|
The facility had a Build a Bear Workshop that offered a unique set of dinosaurs. Each of us, with the exception of Matt, made one. Elora picked out a pink dino which she named Pinkasauras. She also added a dino roar. William chose a triceratops and named him Fluffy. Yes, he picked out the name all on his own. Lockelan fell in love with a blue T-rex while I picked out a veloceraptor and named him Steve.
|Fluffy getting fluffed.|
|William was very particular about Fluffy's bath. It was an extensive cleaning process.|
|Lockelan understood the concept quite well and picked out the heart himself.|
|The is the best photo collective photo we got of our new dino friends.|
|Clearly, everyone had fun.|
|The dino friends enjoyed some time together around the table.|
