Happy Monday morning everyone! Our weekend was relaxing and fun but much too short (as always). We went to dinner with some friends on Friday and did a bunch of boring/grown-up stuff on Saturday (work, taxes, laundry, grocery shopping, naps, etc.). Basically, the first two days of the weekend aren't much to write home about.
However, yesterday was a little more exciting! We (Austin, our friend Ashley, and me) went to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. It was a very interesting place, and it kept us entertained for the entire afternoon.
Like most museums, there was a mix of exhibits and interactive stations. Here are some of the cool things we tried out...
Clockwise from top left: Austin and I doing a weather forecast (it was raining!!), checking out my veins with some crazy light, Austin checking his reaction time, and Austin and I racing a professional football player (we lost).
My favorite exhibits, however, are the following three pictures. First, there was a giant wall of wooden squares, but when you walked by or stood in from of it, all of the sqaures where you were standing would flip down, creating a silouette. See if you can guess which picture is Austin and which picture is me...
The other station I loved was the "motion lab". Basically, you got to choose a skill that you wanted to perform, this lady would film you doing the skill, and then you could compare yourself to a professional athlete. I chose to see how my pirouette sized up to a memeber of the Dallas Black Dance Theatre, and Austin tried to throw a football like some famous NFL player.
We ended the trip with a 3D film about all of the different weather that occurs in space. Extreme heat, crazy lightning storms, giant "dust devils", oh my.
Austin and I went to dinner at one of our favorite spots, Park Tavern, to end the evening. It was a really great day. I hope everyone else have a nice weekend. I'm linking up with Sami today!
