Lifelong Learning starts with Discovery

Yeah, you guessed it.  Mom came up with that title.

We spend a lot of time at the Discovery Center.  It's a great place.  In addition to all the usual fun stuff they have like legos, pulleys, the crane, the airplane simulator... just to name a few. They are always doing super excellent special events.  This past weekend they took us to Hawaii.  Not literally of course.... but, if you use your imagination.  That's the best part how much we get to use our imagination. 
We made stuff ERUPT.  Using a combination of regular stuff... we made it ERUPT!  I could have done that all day... but, there were lots of other fun things to do.  Like play in fake lava, learn to hula dance and even a scavenger hunt.  If you live in Rockford be sure to check out their website for the next super fun day.  Which at the Discovery Center... is every day they are open!

Note from mom:  In July of this year, we got an annual pass.  I believe it was $60.  You can't beat that price.  We can go whenever we want... it doesn't matter if we have an hour or all day.  If you can't afford a membership they offer pay-what-you-can days.  I believe that is Thursday-- every week!  There are special areas for toddlers.  I tend to bring a book or magazine and just move from section to section with the kids.  However, I don't usually get too much read, because I like to join in on the fun.
