Out and about with the sprout...

Take a good look! Yes, these are light sabers from a private collection that were used in the Star Wars Prequel movies. They are on display at the Science Center. Liam and Papa Dave love playing with light sabers. When he saw this display he was fascinated and said, "Want to show Papa Dave." So of course we emailed the photo to him. Then Liam said, "Want to hold the light sabers." I acknowledged he WANTED to and explained he could not. They were just to look at. 

We purchased tickets for the Discovery Room.

 He enjoyed the water table. He fished with nets and splashed with hands. He had fun rerouting
 water and making cages for the plastic fish.
 The walkway over the highway is a delight for old and young alike. There are radar detectors to see how fast traffic is traveling. He looked through this viewer, discouraged he couldn't see "nuffin."

At home he enjoyed expressing his creativity with paints. Sometimes you just have to mix the colors and not worry if the colors touch or blend to blah.


 When I asked what his favorite activity was, he said, "The air." He spent a long time sending the scarves up the wind tunnel and watching them escape and float back down.
 His absolute most favorite thing costs me every time, but only a few nickels or handful of pennies. He loves the gravity cone. He watches the coins spin and spin into the opening. This is how we end our outing at the Science Center.
 But this time he was in for a real treat. As we were leaving, a red helicopter flew over our car right above the tree tops. He was so excited. We watched as it hovered and then descended. Luckily on our way home, we saw where it landed. He said, "Oh Nana, it needs gas."
We all run out of gas, so if you are worn down, need to refuel, do something that catches your interest, something to spark your creativity.

What a fun outing you had with the little fellow. I'm jealous. I would have loved playing with the air tube and the scarves too!

Linda--That Liam is growing so fast. He looks like a little boy and not a baby anymore. What a fun day that was!

Liam looks like he finds a good time wherever he goes!

I always loved that gravity cone. The over-highway walkway...not so much! My kids used to stand on that clear panel.

Liam is a lucky little boy to have an engaged and adoring Grammie! He's a doll. Susan

This looks like so much fun. He is always learning even when he's having fun and exploring.
