OMSI



Our family got to visit OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry)

I'd heard a lot about it and how much fun kids have while they're there, and have been wanting to go. Gladly, the Coles invited us this break and we had the opportunity!
I don't think Porter knew what to think at first...



...he tried to figure things out...



...was glad when he did...



...thought about how things work...



...and was amazed...



...especially by this...



He stayed here for at least 10 minutes pushing that button.

Caroline had a favorite, too!



The little kids weren't the only ones who got to play...


...big kids got to, too!


Seth's very proud of his paper airplane. Perfect aerodynamics=smooth sailing!

There were "brain-teasers" all over the place that the adults would try to figure out. Mr. Seth Smarty-pants figured out most, if not all but a few (of the which I figured out those...except one neither of us could)



He's gonna be such a good doctor.

They also had a Science of Fear exhibit open. It was a perfect day to go to it, considering it was Friday the 13th.

I wouldn't go near this...



...but Seth was brave enough to cheat death.

Hey, I have nightmares about those things...

Anyway, we had a great time.



Porter, especially.

Thanks again, Coles!

Glad that you guys had fun and am disappointed that we couldn't go. The picture of Porter "amazed" has him looking just like you! So cute.
