We tried a local barbeque place tonight for dinner.  The whole place was decorated with armadillos and Texas license plates, I felt right at home 🙂  The food was pretty good, Brad said it tasted almost like Spring Creek (his favorite restaurant)!


Learning about Water

Today we visited the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center.  From the name of the place, I wouldn’t have chosen it as somewhere to take the kids; however, it was featured in a parenting magazine so I decided to give it a try.

The place is not that big, but it does have a fun crab/stingray touching tank for the kids and a very fun interactive H2O room.  The H2O room is all about understanding where water comes from, all the things we use it for and what happens to it after we use it.  Very educational and very hands on. 

There was a group visiting from a local YMCA but after all 120 of them left we had the place to ourselves!  I got to finish reading my parenting magazine while the boys had a ball . . . literally!  There is an exhibit that holds a bunch of blue balls (think a ball pit like at Chuck E Cheese) you can force the balls (representing rain drops) up into a tube (representing vapor) and the balls collect in a cloud above the ball pit.  Once the cloud is full it opens up and all the “rain” falls on whoever is laying in the ball pit.  The boys thought this was great fun and especially liked having the balls fall on mommy 🙂
