Yesterday we packed up to head out to Shreveport. We met Wanda and the kids at Peking and had lunch before getting to Sci-Port. We have never been to Sci-Port before so we were excited to have a fun day together of play and learning.
Here the kids are trying to get their balloons and other crafts to float in the air stream
This was cool. You pushed a button and it pushed you to the top. Cullen loved it and then he added Clara and she could not get enough!
In this exhibit you cold ride a bike to see how many watts you could produce to power any given item.
Here is baby James laughing it up!
After this water exhibit, Clara was drenched and so was Lammie. She decided Lammie wanted to play in the water too! It is amazing how quickly a 2 year old can get into the stroller and pull out her Lammie! Lammie is safe and sound and is even dry now after the incident! Must keep a better eye on Lammie…cannot lose him!
Here is the final shot when we were leaving. Brennan, Evan, Cullen, Chandler holding Clara, Baby James, and Christian. Little did we know that tornado weather was heading our way as we made it down to the Boardwalk to sneak in some quick shopping!
We went to the Boardwalk and barely made it before it started pouring! We made it to The Children’s Place, Stride-Rite, and Shoe Rack. The lady at the Shoe Rack told us they were going to close the store because they had been hearing the sirens and had spotted tornadoes. I looked at her like she was crazy and said, “so you are going to throw us out into the storm??” Needless to say, we stayed and did some more shoe shopping. Cullen had gotten a pair for his birthday so Christian and Clara got a pair this time around. I will have to get a pic of Clara’s shoes. They are called Twinkle Toes and light up! Too, too cute!! Christian’s shoes are “handsome” shoes and he did good after he FINALLY picked some out! We ended up making it home safe and sound. We went past an area on I-20 that looked like we had missed the tornado by probably 20 minutes if that long. I have never seen so many police cars and clean-up crew trucks. The debris along the road was scary to say the least. It looked as though someone had picked up the road signs and crumpled them like paper! Trees and branches were all along the road. I think they had cleaned that part of the highway and were working along the side roads when we made it past. It was quite scary. We did make it home though after a very long day of fun and learning. I was EXHAUSTED!! Clara was too as she crashed as soon as we got in the car to head home after a juice box and fruit chew. =)
Here are some school pics from today. Clara colored the letter ‘B’ blue today with a marker and dot to dot painter. Later in the day we used stickers that started with ‘B’ and placed them on our paper. Can you tell Clara was proud of her work??
