Spring Break

We are on spring break this week, and have been busy!

Monday we went to visit Peter and Julie for the day:
After lunch, Caleb wanted to carry Pabi home. He can carry his 33 pound baby bro up 2 flights of stairs; carrying his cousin in the bjorn is a piece of cake!

We went to the Notebaert Nature Museum (where Peter and Julie had their wedding reception), and played for a while.

We spent some time in the butterfly haven. It was hot and humid in here!

We managed to get some pretty good cousin pictures -- no easy feat with my wiggly Connor. Julie got some good pictures also, which you can see here.

Yesterday we spent the morning at Discovery World:
Calvin (and Caleb) tried out a bed of nails. Connor was going to, but changed his mind.

They also played with a bunch of robot stuff. I think here they are controlling a dinosaur. There was also a cool robotic elephant. The aquarium is really neat, with a petting pool and various fresh and saltwater tanks. Some of the tanks go under the floor, so it's like you are walking on the fish, and it took some coaxing to get Connor to walk on them!

We've got some other fun things planned for the rest of the week, plus I have a cool sewing-for-pay opportunity to do, so we'll see everyone next week! Happy Spring (ha! we are supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow sometime soon).

What did you think of Discovery World? And what did it cost? I wanted to take the kids, but I'd heard it was insanely expensive and not much was working yet :(
