So, after Day 3, we went home for three days and then went back on the road for another three day vacation. This time to Dallas! Brent was attending some meetings for about 1/2 our time, which was sad, but did make our hotel stay free.
Brent's sister Jamie and her boys joined us for the first stop of our adventure - Perot Museum of Nature and Science. The museum is fairly new, pricey, and crowded. That said, they had some cool exhibits, lots of hands on options and very current technology to try out.
The glowing lungs in the background talk were part of the explanation of how blood and oxygen made it up the very long necks of these huge dinos.
This wall was pretty cool and lit up wherever we touched it. Inside, there was another race thing (like in the Power Play exhibit at the OK Science Museum). Then a lot of exhibits about sports medicine and nutrition. We, of course, had horrible nutrition during this trip, but learned a lot about it??? (Does that count?)
There was a fun sports simulator where Brent threw a football and you could run the video of him doing it next to the video of a professional quarterback.
I attempted, fairly unsuccessfully, to capture some pictures of all three of them all weekend. Here are three early attempts :)
Where we went:
Perot Museum of Nature and Science
Where we ate:
Snacks from the airport shop and our stash for dinner as we were a bit stuck, and the kids were tired crazy... the kids loved it.
Where we stayed:
Grand Hyatt DFW - paid for by Intel as part of the meetings Brent was attending. Lovely hotel all around.
