Last week we got out to the Canada Science and Technology Museum a couple of times to check out the summer happenings — and it is one busy place! There were lots of families and even more day camp groups.
We tried out the bottle rockets one day — sorry I didn’t get pictures. Levi decided the bottles were for drinking and when I tried to stop him from popping one into his mouth for a swallow, he showed his displeasure. By baring his teeth. And refusing to unclamp them from my bleeding finger. Needless to say, it was a rather shorter visit that day.
So we went back another day and got a tour of the lighthouse. This is something we’ve never done before and the kidlets loved it! Okay, so did I… We got to go inside, learn about how the lighthouse works, how it was built (and moved to the museum), and climb up the stairs and a ladder to get right up to the rotating light at the top. Did you know it uses an ordinary household lightbulb???
