Swiss Jolly Ball
A Group Favorite
Daphne, Erin, Brendan, Hannah, Owen and Grandma Kathy
We had this place practically to ourselves! What a blast!
The object of Mind Ball is to be calmer than your opponent.
Erin and Grandma Kathy were so evenly calm that they gave up trying to win.
I've never seen that happen before!
Then Hannah and Becky were evenly matched because they were thinking about the same thing at the same time.
The boys were evenly matched but their stress levels were high.
Cracked us up.
Daphne played too.
Starting the ceiling movie....Watching the ceiling movie....The more you moved, the more these people laughed!....Daphne
Running on the wheel....Playing a game
We just love the interactive screens
Hannah reacts to Atoms reactions....Erin....Daphne
Fun with long hair in the wind tunnel....Hannah and Erin
Jean ordered a grilled cheese sandwich from Hannah on the United Airplane
If we are ever sentenced to do time in this Museum, you will find us here or in the mirror maze
Our Indiana Dunes
The Hulk....A cow sitting on a bench....Blue Herbie
Just some scenes we like
A cute camper....A climber
Just a parking lot scene....until you look closer and see the bear!....Reminds me of my '64 Oldsmobile wagon...sigh
Becky surprised us with sundaes after we took our old timey photos
Erin in the whispering gallery....Daphne....Brendan checks out a ship....Becky posing with anything even remotely related to Sherlock
Hold very still and butterflies will land on your shadow
You can put your face on this guy....It borders on the horrifying
Owen: 4 feet 2 inches tall with a wing span of 4 feet 2 inches
Jean: 5 feet 6 inches tall with a wing span of 5 feet 2 inches
Daphne: 5 feet 9 inches tall with a wing span of 5 feet 3 inches
I seriously told Daphne I can't wait until she's 13 years old (next March) because when we pay for 12 and under, I feel like I'm cheating even when I'm not
Crafts at Grandma Kathy's house the day after the Museum
Ivory soap in the microwave
Decorating hot rocks with crayons....They all liked the way the crayons melted and blended on the rocks
Volcanoes!....Owen went first....Then Daphne
Brendan's was fine (no pic)....Erin's foamed away (she said the secret was to add a ton of dish soap)
Funny Story: Sometimes I forget that Owen takes things literally.
The kids and I were looking at the pictures from the Museum and came across this one.
I joked that the picture was fine, I'm just blurry in real life.
Owen paused and then said, "Oh, because of all your wrinkles."
Daphne and Erin gasped but I cracked up!
