Pacific Science Center

We've had tickets to the Pacific Science Center for about six months now and I'm so glad we were finally able to find the time to go.  It is such a fun place and I remember going all the time when I was a kid.  For those who don't know it is just this gigantic cool science place geared toward kids.  I did take too many pictures because we were having so much fun I forgot.  But we did have fun with the mirrors.
For this next one I promise I didn't just turn the camera upside down or flip it on the computer.
We learned all about pulleys.

I didn't get a picture of it but on thing that held the kids attention the most was the toilet at the very entrance.  It was a toilet cut in half in a clear plastic box so you could flush it and see exactly how it worked without getting wet.
The had a little pond where they could touch everything inside.
And the butterflies were probably one of everyones favorites too.
We all had some land on us except for Penelope who didn't want one to touch her.  Scarlett even had one land on her and she cried and ran.
We watched a little show on combustion.  The kids were getting a little scared at the end because of the fire and loud noises.  I made them stay and watch anyway.
We were all geared up for the spy museum part only to find out that we were a day late and that exhibit was closed.  I'm not sure who was more disappointed me, or Tucker.
We made a quick stop at the troll because Tucker is always begging to go and we skipped it last time.
It's always nice to get out and do stuff with the family.  Maybe this year we can score some more tickets and go again.

We use to buy a season pass that seemed well worth the cost. I don't remember the deal, but it seems like it was good for several things for a long period of time. That is not very helpful information, but I just know a season pass of some kind for the Science Center.
