We made plans for the day...
Maddie was to head out with our friends to go berry picking. And to play her made-up game, "Hiding Berries" with her friend Kyan.
The idea just didn't appeal to Trev, so off Maddie goes for the day while Trev and I get to think up big plans of how we're going to spend our day.
Aaaaah - how 'bout The Museum of Ancient Life?
We don't go much because it's expensive (well, to me, anyway...), so I thought "why not?" since it was just the two of us.
I happened to check out the imax theatre, to see if anything interesting was playing... turns out that Sea Rex : Journey To a Prehistoric World, 3D was playing. Hmmmmm...
We're totally there.
When we got there the new temporary display was all about light and color.
We got to play (at our leisure, as we saw only three sets of people today during our entire visit :) ) at all the different tables, and check out light and lenses and colours.
I had forgotten what a cool place that is. 'Specially when it's quiet and empty.
I got to visit with my personal favorites -
Love Petrified Lightning!
And Trevy got to visit with his, too.
We read, and watched short films, and piddled...
and of course saw Sea Rex - which was pretty great.
A couple of times I was a little bothered by the acting, but the information in the film more than made up for it. They put Prehistory in a really defined frame - I thought they did a great job that would help just about anyone have a better understanding of earth's history.
Trev roamed around the giftshop -twice- not sure which creature to get today,
so eventually we came back toward home to pay a quick visit to our local luxe toyshop to choose one, as we have two Cousins that need birthday presents this weekend anyway.
The rest of the evening was spent on our computers....
with me wondering Where is Maddie???
' Missed her.
and tucked in,
and feeling loved.
All is well.
