Our ocean study

quick trip

This past weekend we took a trip up north, back to my hometown.

A horrible pic I know.  After we got there, we went shopping for a bit and wasted some time at Cabela's.  Then we met a friend and her kids for dinner. The boys all hit it off while talking Minecraft and we were able to catch up a bit.

We started the next day by spending some time in the pool.

Then it was off to the doctor.  The reason for the whole trip was an appointment with a specialist for Jack. He has had some health concerns for a few years now and the doctor here just wanted us to have the specialist look at him.  More blood tests for now and hopefully more info in a couple of weeks. After we were done we ate lunch and spent some time at the big mall there.  We also stopped by a local diy festival that was going on.  They did have a cool science corner for the kids with a human brain and homemade 3-d printers.

Some of us didn't survive the wooden roller coaster and we spent the rest of the day following those with stronger stomachs.

We also enjoyed the many historic buildings and displays at the park.

The next day we spent some time at the zoo. We were lucky enough to be able to meet up with some of our local friends.

After the zoo we took the long drive home. Luckily we live in a beautiful state to drive through.
