Hung out with Ben Franklin, my girls and my mom. (MIA from this picture: The Husband. He prefers to be behind the camera, instead of in front of it.)
Learned all about electricity. Received lots and lots of electrical shocks.
Performed lots of experiments.
The girls were amazing at these experiments! They make me so proud. (I couldn't figure out how half of that shiz works!)
Tried to convince this dude he can stop working out now. He's done.
Followed the girls into the giant heart. But it was just too claustro up in there for me-
so I had to punk out :(
Made lots of new friends, like HALL, who is a ROCK STAR. We lurve him. See Faith's A Foodie's review about the food, later on, if you're interested in reading more on that.
Found out there are tools in space, as well as on earth.
Frankie was totally freaked out by this, "Do you think we are alone in the universe?" program.
Hmm, I'm predicting "alien" nightmares in our future...
Learned about "Black Holes" inside the Fels Planetarium. This was very awesomely narrated by Qui-Gon Jinn a/k/a Liam Neeson (for all of you non-Star Wars geeks.)
Had quite a bit of trouble seeing in the dark. Had to bust out the glasses...
BEST part of the day, for me (besides spending time with my family): getting a glimpse at the Dead Sea Scrolls! No flashes are allowed inside the exhibit, so these pictures are kind of dark. Also, after a certain point, (the bathtub) you are not allowed to take any photos at all. I strongly encourage anyone who lives close enough, to go see this exhibit now, before it moves on. Here are just a few of the amazing artifacts you will see:
Sorry, no more photos are permitted, after the tub.
If you didn't guess what I did yesterday, I went to The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Farrah asked to go see the Dead Sea Scrolls, for her 10th birthday present. How cool is that? It was a stellar day. One I hope she remembers for a long, long, time.
Today is my mom's birthday, which we will be celebrating later on. The party never stops over here at the Bird's Nest.What did you do yesterday? Have any great plans for the weekend? Whatever you choose to do, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Cheers!
