LivingSocial had a deal last week for the Arizona Science Center. An unlimited summer pass for 4 people, 2 general tickets (incase you bring a friend) and 4 tickets to their extra charge Sesame Street The Body exhibit. All that for 35 bucks! Not to mention a nice way to spend some of the hot summer days ahead.
We went yesterday for the first time. About 75% of the museum was over their heads but they still had fun. Way more fun than we ever had at the Children's Museum - of which I am not a fan.
My mom went with us which was not only necessary (with my current girth and back pain I am not easily able to carry Joy and pick her up to see and do things.) but also more fun for all of us.
They could have stayed at the ball/water exhibit for hours.
Claire really wanted to do the bed of nails... until it was her turn and she realized they really were sharp nails. Here she is after I forced her to try it. It was not so bad she decided.
Like I said, a lot of it was over their heads, but if it had a button to push, it was awesome.
and there were plenty of young-child friendly things to do.
Claire's favorite was building with these blocks.
She built a pretty big tower all by herself. She knocked it down before she left so that some other kid wouldn't get the pleasure.
