Coral reefs and stars… Day 1119 10DEC11
Jarrod and Joshua along with the rest of us slept in this morning. Renee and Joshua didn't make it home last night until 1:30 so they were pretty tuckered out.
The boys had asked if I could take them to MOSI for the afternoon so we ate a quick bite of lunch and headed out. First up was an IMAX film called Coral Reefs that Jarrod has been wanting to see. We walked into the theater and Joshua picked out some seats for us, as we waited for the movie to start a group from the CCC came in and sat down right behind us. Joshua's buddy Trent was there along with the rest of the Lewis clan so Joshua was thrilled. Jarrod's buddy Matt came and sat next to him and we all enjoyed the movie together. We walked around for a few minutes with the CCC group after the movie was over until they had to leave to go home.
Jarrod's other request for the day was to go see the planetarium show so we headed across the street to the other wing of the museum to wait for the show to begin. The boys had fun playing with all the exhibits until it was time to go in and sit down in the dark for a while. Neither of the boys had ever been in a planetarium before and Jarrod relay enjoyed the show. Joshua got a little motion sick as the stars were moving about so he was less enthusiastic about the whole thing. We headed out of the museum afterwards to begin our journey back home but decided as we walked out to the car to take walk through the nature trails behind the museum. We had a nice walk and got a chance to get some fresh air and a bit of exercise.
We made it home in time to get a little skating in before it got dark. As we were eating dinner pa called to tell us that the annual lighted boat parade was going to start in about 30 minute so we finished up our meal and jumped in the car. We arrived just in time to see the procession of boats parade past grandma and pa's dock. The boats were all lit up and it was quite the spectacle. We said our goodbyes after it was over and headed home to watch the Bolts play a little hockey to wrap up our day. Quite a lot of fun for one Saturday :)
