Sunday Family Funday

This past sunday was D's last sunday before school started back up for the semester so we were determined to make it count. Despite living in Boca for 6 months and it being 10 minutes away, we had never been to the Children's Science Explorium so we decided it was the perfect day to check it out.
To say Yishai had a blast would be suuuch an understatement :) Gosh, this age with a toddler is He is so curious about everything and has really taught me to stop and see the world the way he sees it. And also, when did he start having opinions?! Long gone are the days of telling him what we're doing next and having him just go along with it! It's so cute (if not a little frustrating sometimes) when he vocally lets us know that he does/doesn't want to do/eat/wear/stop playing with something and the intonation in his little voice while saying (or screaming) "yeah" and "no!" has us frequently holding back our laughter.

^^scowling because I took him away from the row of chained-up 'big-kid' bikes. Sometimes you have a mean mommy, kid :)^^

 ^^Check out that engine! Papa would be proud :)^^

^^This might be the only picture of Yishai actually looking at the camera!^^

^^I'm a wuss and this spinning thing and those little 'carni' caterpillar rollercoasters are the only rides I can handle. I've come to terms with the fact that I'll be the mom waiting at the end of the rides.^^

^^This captivated his attention for about 20 minutes (which is an eternity in toddler time!). He had to 'prep' the rocket by pushing 5 buttons (fuel, checking gauges...etc) and only after all 5 were lit up did the big 'launch' button light up. He must've launched that rocket 30 times (while yelling "AIRPLANE" at the top of his lungs)!^^

^^You mean I can bang as loud as I want?!^^

^^Right after this picture was taken D drummed so hard that big black piece fell off!^^

^^A piano is sooo overrated! Where do we get one of these things?!^^

^^The speed and motion of these 'molecules' represented the behavior of molecules in solids, liquids and gases. Yishai just wanted them to move as fast (read: make as much noise) as possible :)^^

^^Maybe one of these days we'll get a family picture where everyone is looking at the camera and smiling! A mom can dream, right?^^

Is this the one with the wooden huge playground outside of it?
When I was younger and we went to Florida for vacation we would go every year to the park/museum. It was so enjoyable!
Looks like you guys had a great time!
