A throwback weekend
We also spent part of Saturday afternoon dodging rug rats at the newly opened museum of science - a great experience if you've got kids, a slightly germy and loud experience if you don’t. But it was fun visiting the dinosaurs and also seeing how far museums have come. Nearly every exhibit was interactive with flashing lights and buttons and touch screens. There were also simulation experiences, like an earthquake platform and 3-D bird flight game. Needless to say we didn't fight the kids (or the lines) to ride those ‘rides.’ I felt a little weird about pushing buttons and wearing 3-D glasses that 1,000 spring break elementary school kids wore before me. I may or may not be turning into Monk.
It will still be awhile before I feel completely comfortable here but the city (as you all predicted) is starting to grow on me. I've found at least two coffee shops that I feel confident recommending to people and may be taking my laptop there one weekend afternoon to soak in the caffeinated atmosphere.
What do you do on rainy weekends in your town?
*You’re going to see the word ‘new’ used A LOT because pretty much everything in this city is new to me. It’s also a slight new experience to have to use a GPS to get everywhere I want to go
