Ashleigh & Clayton making goo
The kids were invited to a science party at the North Carolina Life & Science Museum in Durham. The party took place in an actual laboratory where the kids learned all about acids, bases and chemical reactions. Reed even participated in one of the demonstrations.

After the party, we got a chance to explore the rest of the museum. There is so much to do and see at the Life & Science Museum!

The kids (and Daddy's!) favorite part of the museum was the space exhibit. Here Dave and the kids attempt to launch a craft to Mars.

Time for a ride on the train!
After a train ride around the museum grounds, the kids headed over towards the playground to explore a real train car.

We had a fun filled afternoon at the museum! Even though we saw alot, we didn't even get around to the Butterfly house, farmyard animals or nature trail. Maybe next visit!
