We had a slam packed weekend and I haven’t had much time to sit and write anything out. There are some good stories and one involves diapers and boating.
We went to Discovery Park of America. Always a good time. We went up in a really tall tower where I faced my one true fear.
No, not heights.
Then we went inside to the space section and I had an interesting thought. This golden plate was attached to the Voyager probe in case aliens ever discover it so they can know where it came from and who we are. I think it was a little short sighted though.
What about the obesity epidemic or the fact that every person they will ever encounter has clothes. This will be helpful if they land at a friendly nudist colony. For true accuracy I think the figures needed to be in utility clothing and holding some sort of weaponry.
The outdoor portion of the Discovery Park had an old firehouse and one of my other deeply held fears presented itself.
They looked entirely too comfortable thinking about swinging from that thing.
We spent the next day at the Tennessee River which has rock layers that contain lots and lots of fossils. One of our favorite things to do is look for cool plants and animals in the rock. Jane found a Trilobite almost immediately.
We had a pretty good haul at the end if the day.
The weekend was an awesome break from the newly established school routine.
I hope everyone had a good holiday. Back to the regular stuff later this week!
