Why have we never come here before?

We have lived in Pullman for 7 years, and heard about the Palouse Discovery Science Center, but never gone until today. And it was totally awesome! The kids loved it! I soo would have bought a membership and gone alot if I had known it was that cool. But seeing as we may be leaving with in the year, it might not be worth it. We went with the Gotfredson's (Maren, Kody, Jack, and Weston), who we do preschool with. Here are some of our pictures:
Trestin liked to climb up, stare at the "Baby", then do a nose dive off. Then do it again. Weston liked the view from the ground (seen in the mirror). Trestin is 3 days younger then Trestin, and is running circles around Trestin, who still won't walk. Oh well.

Once Jack found the dinosaur dig in the lentils (fitting isn't it, we are a major grower of lentils and have the Lentil Festival every year), it was hard to pull him away. Aleksia really liked it too. She's showing you "the dinosaur head."

I DO NOT do snakes. So sorry the picture is blurry, but I was standing about 100 ft away! I made sure they sanitized their hands twice before touching me. When asked what their favorite part of the day was, they both replied, "Petting the snake!" Yuck!!!

Weston and Trestin playing on the domed mirrors having a ball.

Kody and Garrick making a tube tunnel for the balls, the did a pretty good job at figuring it out (with alot of trial and error, and running to get the ball 'cause it didn't work).

Well that is a really well kept secret in the Palouse, huh?? I had heard of it, but I didn't know that it was so hands-on, like a little children's museum. It looks like the kids had a great time!!

Wow, that does sound really neat! I've heard of it too. Maybe they should advertise the place more (you know, what's all in the place).
