Thank you so much for your kind comments and feedback on my previous post. It is so nice to know that there are many other homeschooling families out there... doing what they love:)
As we will be taking many many local adventures in Los Angeles with our kids, I thought it would be fun to keep track of fun places to enjoy with little ones.
So here it is!
Our recent family trip took us to California Science Center for the first time. I seriously could not believe we have never been there considering how close we actually are! We heard a lot of buzz about it when space shuttle Endeavor moved in couple years ago.
Since Frido was in his semester break, we were able to visit there on Wednesday morning and the trip exceeded our expectation. Seeing the space shuttle in person was quite overwhelming. To witness this incredible artifact that has traveled beyond atmosphere... and come back. Girls also found very entertaining to learn how astronauts go to the bathroom in the space. It always amazes me to watch which information sticks the most to them. Not always the ones I predict!
We combined our visit with their IMAX movie A Beautiful Planet. The film was a perfect compliment to our first encounter with the real space shuttle.
Aside from seeing Endeavor..., they have different exhibits throughout the museum space... all for FREE! (I couldn't believe everything was free... ) We loved their small aquarium with kelp forest and meeting divers who were feeding the fish in the tank. Since it was our very first trip there, we didn't see everything in the museum but are looking forward to going back. Especially when they open the new exhibit The Science Behind Pixar in October.
