We're back from our trip to the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham &Â Chapel Hill for those of you outside of North Carolina).
I'm so glad to be home! As much as I enjoyed our trip and catching up with friends and being away from housework and cooking, it's good to be back in our own cozy home.
The only pics we took while away were at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham. This place is awesome for kids! We try to go there almost every time we're in the Triangle. If we lived there we'd have a membership. In fact, we should have a membership anyway considering it pays for itself after a couple of visits.
This time we bypassed the animal exhibits altogether (besides the butterfly house, which we always visit), and went straight to the "Catch the Wind" exhibit -- a new one for us. Being completely interactive, it was perfect for an active and curious little kid.
On the way out, we stopped at the "sound/space" exhibit and danced around the grid. The room is set up to convert movement into sound, and movement in each sector of the grid creates a different sound pattern. So as you and other people move around the room, you're creating your ownÂ dance music. Fun!
