Awesome Tech Museum Day

Looking for the train....

Lions that perfectly matched G's outfit

What a great day, awesome museum. Fun to train down, too. We went for the Maker Exhibit, but were enchanted by so much else. The Born to the Wild IMAX movie was touching and amazing; stories of women who raised generations of baby chimpanzees and elephants and then released them to the wild. An earthquake exhibit that simulated about eight different quakes - so fascinating to feel the difference. A simulated space probe and deep sea probe. A computer that sketched both girls. Lots more....
