THE DISCOVERY CENTER
It was not only fun for them to do, but, it was fun to watch as it was being done. It was like seeing a wall come to life before your eyes.
I wouldn't know really. I didn't lay on it.
Here Nikki is seeing what it would be like to be a fish in an aquarium looking out at the people.
I have to tell you, should you ever be on the road and see Jesse behind the wheel, watch out! She is one crazy driver.
After resting up they went to the ice hockey area. There they got to try their hand at what it feels like to be the shooter in a hockey game.
Yes, there is something there. It's the whole Space Exhibit.
Here the girls are standing under a real Rocket Booster Engine. It simulates it's own launch.
There are movie screens all around, the loud speakers, fog/mist that comes from the Rocket and then you hear 3,2,1 Blast Off!
It's almost like really being there.
Turns out, not so much! They only wanted to spend a few minutes here and then asked to go back inside.
They wanted to shop. We went to the gift shop and they each bought what they felt were the treasures of the day and a snack.
We were all a little bit thirsty and the girls wanted to eat their snacks. We went back to the Taco Bell where we had lunch and ended up staying there resting, having a snack, talking about the day and the girls showed each other what they purchased at the gift shop.
Just as we were heading back out to let the girls go play at the play ground, the notice came over the loud speakers. It was 5:00pm and the place was closing. We had to head home.
