Wyatt was fascinated by many things, including this one of a tornado. You could make it change directions by interrupting the air flow. He stayed over there for quite some time. He is starting to show a love of Science like Levi, and an interest in all things electrical.
Everyone helped build an arch, and then watched the hubs stand it up. Helpful hint: if you have little ones don't go near the downstairs exit. There is an indoor playroom there that will fascinate them beyond belief and you may never get to finish the place. Or, take Grandmama and let her sit in there and watch them while you roam freely with the older kids.
S is doing one of the poses he is getting famous for. The boys weren't all that into the dinosaurs. They basically stormed though the whole thing in about twenty minutes. ( Thank goodness we didn't pay extra for the Pompeii part.) There was a program over in the corner going on upstairs. The darn scientist kept blowing things up, and scaring the crap out of me. The hubs asked me what was burning, and I pointed over to the class, lol.
The last exhibit we saw was one on levers, and pulleys. You could move small rocks from point A to point B, using all kinds of cool things. W said he could have stayed at that one all day. They even had two augers at the end of it. I told the buddies that was what our augers looked like on the inside when Daddy was unloading or loading soybeans and grain. They even had a four-wheeler in there you could lift.... great hands-on stuff!
After Discovery Place, we stopped by Southpark Mall to visit the Apple Store. But, alas, Apple was giving away a free IPod if you bought a computer, and the place was packed. There was even a line waiting to get in. Landon was wondering out-loud if Apple purposely makes it difficult to get to a store. There are only TWO in North Carolina, and they are small inside. Is it a marketing ploy?
We came home and the hubs and L caught five young bulls to take to the sale barn. We all rode out to Rimer to drop them off for today's sale. And to borrow a phrase from the father-in-law.... it was "hotter than cow piss" at that darn sale barn yesterday. How was your Sunday? Ours was pretty full, if I do say so myself. :)
