This weekend we spent the weekend with our parents. Firstly there is the diplomacy to manage to ensure that each family sees the children for the same amount of time, we counter this by staying at both families with the children swapping houses on each night. Saturday morning was spent with Grandad and Saturday afternoon with Grandma and Granfer and then all together on Sunday morning, its a logistical challenge with lots of driving between the houses, but hopefully a solution which pleases all.
On this visit we were able to visit the interactive Science museum in the centre of Bristol @Bristol. Its somewhere I’ve wanted to visit for a long time and the children now seem to be at an age when they can make the most of the facilities the museum offers. The children are at a great age and I am really looking forward to doing more activities with them, each age just makes the children more entertaining, interesting and fantastic company.
The museum was brilliant, everything was interactive and I learnt so much. The museum has different themes, the body, the solar system, an exhibition on food, simple physics as well as demonstrations, little shows etc.. I had so many favourite activities, freeze your shadow was amazing, looking at my veins pumping blood fascinating, checking my vital statistics and learning that my resting heart beat is good was reassuring and a go at making a short animation which was emailed back to me made me feel quite creative. My parents and the children loved the museum too and it was lovely to see them explaining all to the children like they used to with me. I think they too have been patiently waiting to visit the museum to explore and learn. It is the type of museum you just don’t want to leave and when you do, you are already planning the next trip.
