Money burning a hole in my pocket!

January 27th, 2007 at 06:33 pm

Well not really, but I did decide to splurge yesterday and we all went to the discovery place.

We have a membership so the only cost was food.

While we were there at the end of the day we watched them set up some tables. They do this everynight or at least everynight we are there, so I sent my husband to ask what was up. He discovered a members only event. Did I mention we were members? So we stayed, and got to eat free, candy cookies and icecream, watch them destroy peeps via liquid nitrogen, a vacum, and somehow blow one up..I missed the explination, but I was there for the fire Smile.

Then we got a first look at the new exhibit. All kinds of cool info on sugar (it is in concrete!) and taste buds (loved JC's face when the grape jelly bean turned to strawberry as she stopped holding her nose!)

There was more but we had to leave, it was past the kids bedtime, we rarely do that at all, but oh it was a great day.

total cost....16$ for dinner for 5 of us, plus the gas to drive there, not to shabby for a very full day Smile

On a side note today we went grocery shopping and we are under budget to close out the month, and the rest of the loot burning a hole in my pocket I will call the car company today...if they arn't there i will call Monday to get it to them. applied to principle, not prepayment!

    Cool, Glad you had fun. I don't like grape jelly beans if I hold my nose then let go will it taste like strawberry?

    Sounds like a blast! This kind of thing is the best kind of learning experience for children.

    I think you have to start with strawberry to get it to work, sorry....

    And yeah the kids had a blast, and learned, my favorite way Smile.

    Hey, I think we have a Disovery Place in our downtown as well.

    I haven't gone through in ages. Will probably take the kids there someday soon.
