After a long day of cleaning up at work, at his boss's house and then our house...Brian took the time to relax with his music and a fire. Well deserved!!

TODAY: I found out that if you got to the Science Center this morning between 10 and 11 they gave you free admission!!! We did pay to watch an IMAX 3-D show "Wild Ocean". Let me tell you...IMAX & 3-D is AMAZING!!


The boys were able to pet a 15yr old python,

tug of war pendulum...one side was easier to pull because the pulley was at the top while the other side was at the bottom,

Didn't take my real camera. These were all taken with my phone, so not the best. But it was a fun fun day! Leaving tomorrow to move Corinne to my parents house. Will stay there a couple days and be home Sunday. Boy it's been a crazy month! Sad to see summer end though
