Everyone loves water parks

After our fun at COSI we all walked across the bridge to the waterpark at the Scioto Mile. It has been a ridiculously hot spring, which is hard for these Seattleites to take considering it’s only 60 degrees out west.

Even the big kids got in on the fun. BJ said he didn’t plan on getting wet, but how can you resist?

Thomas was running towards me being silly, this really nails his essence, I think.

It’s even more fun when the BIG sprinklers come one…

What a great day with friends and cousins.

Even G-ma and G-pa came along, it’s like they’re homeschooling parents now that they’re taking care of my niece and nephew while my sister is working on getting her house sold.

Just a little zap

My niece Isa has made the journey to Ohio so we now get to rediscover all the fun little kid things that my bigger kids have outgrown. We met some friends at COSI for a few hours of fun. Isa does not ever remember being at COSI so it was all new to her.

COSI is even more fun when you know the kids putting on the shows. Both Thomas and Louisa do the EG (electro-static generator) show at COSI but by the time we got there Thomas had already done his show for the day so we only got to see Louisa’s performance. The little girls loved getting shocked, so much that we sat through the show 2 times.

Next they tried out the wind tunnel.

Then they all worked together to lift the car.

They did need a little help from Thomas.

That car is really heavy.

They also got to watch Thomas and Louisa do one of the carts. Thomas has learned so much being a volunteer at COSI.

It was so much fun getting to watch Thomas and Louisa do there stuff and watching Isa and her new friends get to know each other. It was like they had always been friends, not that they had just met last week.
