Mimi's Summer Day Camp, Day Two --- Wizard School

Thursday was field trip day at summer camp, so we were off to visit the San Antonio Doseum. The girls have memberships and have been there several times, so they were going to show Mimi and Grumpy around today!
Of course, first stop for breakfast at the Kolache Factory.  Joss didn't want one, she opted for the cinnamon roll. Messy, messy, mess! 

We arrived and after getting tickets for the two of us and checking the girls in at the member desk, we were off and running..... first stop was a wind tunnel. They have wings for every kind of butterfly and these dragon wings that the girls put on.
The next room had lots of information stations about our world, and KT worked on this big puzzle of the United States.  I think she's done this before! 
Here's some indoctrination about global warming.... 😠
There were some neat foam wood blocks that Joss played with for ages. She loved these! 
The next room had a vertical wind tunnel that the kids could put their aeronautic creations in to see how high they would fly. KT loved this! 

Joss played with a magnet pin ball machine. I couldn't really figure this one out, but thankfully Joss didn't really care if we were doing it right (ha!) 
KT built a ball roll experiment - she really figured this out so fast, Grumpy didn't have to do much coaching at all. Smart girl! 
 There was some kind of dark room with pens that wrote in lights. KT is writing the name of some singer that she likes.
Wonder Woman!! I thought we were going to have to wrestle her out of this outfit - she did NOT want to take it off.
This was my favorite! The girls were on TV. There were various backgrounds - here KT is sitting on the dinosaurs tail! 
There were some green capes that you could put on to make your body disappear - can you see Joss's head floating there?! 
Then we went into Little Town - HEB had a whole grocery store that the girls "shopped" in. They've done this before, you could tell. You can tell the difference between these two and their food habits - KT selected a good selection from all the food groups, and Joss bee-lined for the breads. We had a good laugh! 
 Next was the veterinarian clinic - Joss is in full doc mode here.  She kept running out to me to get help, "Mimi, put these in my ears (stethoscope.)" and showing me her stuffed animal and what was wrong with it.  She's a real character and really really really loves dress up!
At about 1:30 we decided everyone was starving, so we left and stopped at McDonald's for lunch.... 
...and finally got home about 4 pm in time for a good swim.  Grumpy is still fighting a terrible cold, so he sat out today and I was on pool duty.  We had a blast! 
No camp next week as the girls and family are on vacation.  Next camp is all about dinosaurs!
