Yesterday while I was getting my hair done (thank you Andrea), Jason called to tell us he would be getting off early. He's not "that person". He doesn't just take time off for no reason, so I was certainly surprised. It was so nice to be able to have a day all together with nothing to do. We decided to take the kids to the Exploration Works since Ethan hasn't been able to go yet (and keeps begging). Of course the kids loved it.
But so did Jason. He was totally into building the best water setup.
This is one of the exhibits Elliott and I hadn't done yet. It "freezes" your shadow on the wall. This was fun for everyone. So here they are making the shadow.......
and if you look close (it's much better in person), when the bright light goes out, they move away and the shadow is still on the wall. They stood in all sorts of crazy ways.
After we were done there, we walked next door to the carousel. None of us had been there yet.
Elliott didn't want to ride an animal so he chose this. It's like a teacup ride on the carousel (puke).
The rest of the day was pretty uneventful, but it meant a lot for us to have some carefree family time.
