Last Thursday, July 12th, our family took a road trip to Oklahoma City with Nana. I hadn’t been to OKC in a long time and it looked very different from the last time I was there! There are so many fun things to do in OKC but we decided to spend the majority of our day at the Oklahoma Science Museum. I remember going there as a child when it was called the “Omniplex” and I remember loving it!
Here is our family right after we got to the museum- cracks me up how excited Foster looks!
Daddy pointing out one of the planets… Emma didn’t want to get too close!
Nana had a great time playing with the kids at the museum. I had to sit down a lot. I had worked at the hospital the night before so I was very tired!
Emma listening to the different pitches with the “Jingle Jars”
Emma and Foster inside the mirrors seeing how a Kaleidoscope works
Putting on a puppet show- they are watching themselves on a little TV
Robin and Foster putting a 3-D puzzle together
“Echo…echo…echo…” in the tube
I must say that Robin had the most fun of any of us. He is a science junkie and especially loved the puzzles and brain teasers. :)
Checking out the real life tractor
Pretend fire station
Thinking about sliding down the pole
Foster the astronaut
Foster in front of the dinosaur
Foster and Daddy checking out the fish
Blue wall for pretending to do the weather… the kids loved this!
Climbing on the model teeth!
Emma loved spinning on this wheel- she pretended to be a figure skater!
Foster’s turn on the spinning wheel
Lunch time… here’s Nana- isn’t she so cute?
Foster loved seeing the real train
Foster was fascinted by the model trains- he could have watched them for hours
Hey look! There’s Thomas!
This was Foster’s favorite exhibit- he asked to go back to it multiple times. It was a lesson about the center of gravity… You had to guess which of three objects would make it to the bottom the fastest when you let them all go at the same time. Mom, Robin, and I all guessed incorrectly. :)

The kids favorite thing at the Science Museum was a Planetarium show that we went to. Obviously, I don’t have any pictures because it was pitch black!
We spent about 4 hours at the Science Museum and probably only saw about half of the exhibits! We’ll definitely have to go back again sometime.
