Arizona Science Center

Friends of ours had free passes to the Arizona Science Center and they were not going to be able to use them before they expired and they were so gracious and gave them to our family. We were thrilled. We had not been here in a couple of years and it was a nice time with just our family and no agenda. We packed our lunches and headed out to downtown Phoenix. We all had a great time as there were things to do for all ages.

Yes, this is a bed of nails!! The kids were nervous to try it and then amazed that it did not hurt. (The nails retract......while they are down you get on the bed and then someone holds a button down and the nails come up)

Can you lift your body weight? This room was filled with all different physics activities.

Any guesses as to what this is?? It is your stomach and would the correct term be rectum??? LOL This was soooo funny! It is a slide complete with sound effects!!!
The kids thought it was great and gross all at the same time and it freaked Natasha out!! She did not like it at all. So we made her go down it (the poor girl) hehehe
Here she is coming out (our little squirt, OK no more comments ;) she was traumatized.

There was a room with "brain games" We had a lot of fun playing in here.

Okay you have to check out this game if you have never heard of it before. It is called the Tower of Hanoi. The object is to get the stack of rings to the other peg on the right. There are some rules involved and it is a lot trickier than it looks. It kept Jay and I busy for over a half an hour. I came home and googled it (I love google!) and there are some online versions. Go check it out.
We were blessed to spend this time together as a family and we had a great afternoon!
