McWane Science Center

We traveled to Birmingham to get Will's non-load bearing casts removed and get his walking casts put on, so I decided we might as well make a school day out of it and plan a field trip! :) We went to the McWane Science Center and had a blast!!

Here are some of the activities from the main level:

And now I have proof that I have chaos-makers:

I have to jump in and say that every time Nathan ran off, we found him here:

On the lower level, they had a water set-up where we could touch sharks and stingrays. Will has always been afraid to touch the water animals in exhibits like this, so I was really proud of him when he finally did it that day!!

Witt - on the other hand - had no problems touching! I don't think this picture does justice to how far down in the tank his left hand was, but I think you can see that I had a firm grip on him! He was almost swimming with the sharks! LOL!

On the second level there were weather exhibits, dinosaurs exhibits, and more.

We didn't have time to make it to the 3rd level. We will definitely be going back to this place!!

That looks like a great museum! I just caught up with your crazy happenings- Will's surgery and casts, Witt growing out of his allergy... you are on quite the rollercoaster ride! Praise God for the allergy no longer being life-threatening. My middle boy also seemed to have eczema flare up (mostly scalp) when he had dairy, so we cut that way back. Anyway, I'm so happy for you and the answer to your prayers. I remember praying back when you asked us to :) Take care!
