Oh OMSI how we love you.

If you've been a long time reader of my blog you know how much my kids dig OMSI. We decided it was time to take another trip up to see some new stuff, and so a few Saturdays a go we pack the kids in the 'big red car' and drove up to Portland.

They had a new exhibit called, 'The Science of Fear.' It was alright, but not as good as many of the others I've been to. My favourite will always and forever be the Titanic one they had (followed closely by the Dinosaurs of China). It really wasn't that interesting for the kids, so we went through it pretty quickly and moved on to more fun stuff. Nothing beats skipping out on house work like a good family outing. We even ran into our lovely friends, the Youngs. And, if you look carefully in the pictures you might even catch a cameo appearance from Buzz Lightyear and Sheriff Woody.

Twinkle Toes first trip to OMSI, oh so exciting!

Boy really got into playing in the Preschooler and under rooms

Sheepie loves playing at the water station

Sadly it seems that we didn't get any pictures of FP. Aren't we great parents! He'll probably end up scarred, since we only have 900 other pictures of him.

If you're ever in the Portland area with nothing to do... OMSI is certainly the happening place to be.

So when will you add Twinkletoes' silhouette to the page?

I was thinking about that yesterday, actually... after the new year when everything settles a little bit, hopefully I will find the time to make a new banner.
