The Grand Finale

Day 6 is here! The Finale of the 2009 family staycation!! It was a good and busy day again today. First we went to the old Union Station building that has been renovated into a Museum and entertainment complex.

We went to the travelling Narnia exhibit which unfortunately would not let us take pics inside the exhibit.

Then courtesy of the internet, we enjoyed a free visit to the Science City Museum for kids. It is fun! Two floors of science related interactive exhibits.

She tried to take a bath with the ducks!

This bike is on the second story - it was hard to watch them do this.

Hubs and the boy really enjoyed playing this pipe instrument with flip-flops.

Aren't they cute?

Then we crossed the street to Crown Center and had lunch at Fritz's. The food is just diner hamburgers, but the delivery style is unique.

Yep that's a train.

And here are my engineers.

We visited this free exhibit of "lego art" All the mosaics and sculptures are made completely of legos!

Staycations are some of the best quality family time. To often people miss out on some great things right near home. That ceiling looks amazing. I wanted to say thanks for stopping by during our last weekly challenge for Change The World Wednesdays. We are doing another one again. Stop by and participate as well if you like. The more the better for the environment and all of us in blog land. All the best. Here is this weeks Challenge. http://livesmartbook.blogspot.com/2009/08/change-world-wednesdays.html
