Christmas Around the World

Even though we recently visited the Museum of Science and Industry, I wanted to go back before the end of the year to check out the Trees from Around the World. We had free passes from Sam's radio appearance that expired 12/31, so that was a motivating factor, as well. I think this is the Polish tree~
Of course, we had to stop at the fabulous You! The Experience exhibit. The kids loved this video game~
But what really thrilled them this time was the Live Science Experience, "Bangs, Flashes and Fire!"~
We saw this exhibit back in January, but like moths to a flame we were mesmerized once again~

Charlie really wants to do the pickle experiment (above) as his Greenhouse science experiment this year. We'll see. This is fun, too~

Mary loved the little chicks. Brings back memories~
Three in a wheel~
This is another new exhibit. One can never go wrong with giant displays of LEGOs~
And Mary, contemplating her strange self~
Some of my favorite pictures are of the backs of my children~
Sam turns every place we go into a jungle gym~
And Mary figures, if Sam can do it, so can she~
We had a fun trip today, but I think I'll avoid the holiday break in the future - it was very crowded. I was worried about losing someone constantly, and it was difficult to really see some of the exhibits. The kids didn't seem to mind, though, and it was a nice little get away.
