Homeschooling has so many benefits - a fun one is all the random discounts we get to places! This week there was an amazing discount at a science museum in Pigeon Forge, TN. It's called Wonderworks, and they offered 2 homeschoolers to get in free from each family and only $10 for each additional person. Normal admission is $17.50/person! We went with friends and had a blast!

The museum is designed to look like it was grabbed up in a tornado and landed upside-down on top of another building...

The boys loved proving their strength (helped out by the pulleys ;)

It had a ropes course that was SO cool! And also very hard to photograph. All lit up in neon, it was overhead, and went up 3 levels! Both boys did it a couple times, but it was too dark to get any good photos of them doing it - this is the view looking up from the ground:

This is a giant replica of one of those handheld toys with the little plastic pins that you push to the other side to make imprints of your hands and such. Pretty fun in 6' tall size!
By this point Blossom was sound asleep all cuddled in her sling - so sweet!
Clay in the Bubble Room:
Took a picnic break outside (or a wrestling break as the boys would call it):
Went back in to do the ropes course again and check out a few things we had missed the first time through. Blossom was super cute in the astronaut suit ... until she started licking the inside :)

Looks like my Facebooking days are coming to an end. There's some glitch on my end that doesn't allow me to do much on there - can't read messages or check event invites, etc. So I guess I'll have to go back to good old-fashioned email :) And try to update my blog regularly so friends will still know what we're up to!

Have a great weekend, y'all!
