Time Rolls On

On the 12th Aunt Darcy, Mom, Dad and I went to the Museum of Discovery and Science down in Fort Lauderdale.
Before we even went inside, I was fascinated. This is a clock in the atrium that elevators up colored balls that then follow the tracks down. It's actually a gravity clock and I guess it's the largest kinetic energy sculpture in Florida. I don't know what any of that means, but it was pretty cool.
Also, the base of the clock is a fountain and you know how I like running water. And AD gave me some change to make a few wishes. I'd tell you what I wished for but then it wouldn't come true. Guess you'll just have to wait and see!

Once we were inside, we saw all sorts of cool things.
And some scary things too. Not for me mind you but behind this display there was a cutout in the wall shaped like Dad. That baby!

Turtle

Snake. Very cool.

This is the underside of some sort of Ray. U-G-L-Y!

My favorite part of the museum was probably the river otter exhibit.
They were cute little guys and it was pretty fun to see them swim and play together. They seemed to like me too because as soon as we got close to the glass several of them got out of the pool to come say high.

Next to the otter was a prehistoric exhibit. There was a Mammoth big enough that you could walk under and a Saber Tooth Tiger showing his incisors but my favorite was the Megalodon.
The Megalodon was a prehistoric shark that was over 50 feet long and regularly dined on sperm whales. That's a big shark!

This was a tornado exhibit which may be a little cliche since I'm from Kansas but it was pretty cool.

Lightning Ball

This was a "Go Green" exhibit but I really just wanted to drive the garbage truck. Dad said something about setting my sites a little higher but I didn't really get it.

There was a special little kids zone for kids under 7. And it was a mad house. Not a lot of parenting going on in that area, that was for sure.


Upstairs was the Runways to Rockets exhibit which was kind of cool since I had so much fun on the plane ride down.


For dinner that night we hit up the Sicilian Oven for some pizza. It was yummy!

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
Avery
