Exploring the science museum

Forest’s cousin Zane’s Birthday party was very fun today at the science museum.  Forest especially liked the water exhibit in the childrens’ area.

At first I thought, “there’s no need to wear those plastic aprons they provide. He’ll just be putting his hands in the water.” How wrong I was, He managed to get completely wet. Luckily I had a change of clothes packed.

Zane, the birthday boy brought his mommy Cheryl (Forest’s cousin, but we call her Aunt Cheryl).  Suzi, Zane’s aunt and Forest’s cousin (although we call her Aunt Suzi), was there.  Mommy’s new great-great-nephew Caleb was there with mommy Rebekah and Rebekah’s friend Leah.  Not sure what Caleb’s relationship to Forest is, but it must be some kind of cousin.

Leah, Rebekah’s friend, is on the left. Rebekah is holding newborn Caleb who is 2 weeks and 5 days old.

Debbie is Caleb’s great-grandmother. I also might mention that Debbie knitted a beautiful baby blanket for Forest with colors taken from forests and rivers!

Forest climbed on these risers and fell.  His nose bled very slightly, but he is apparently fine.

Here are the risers that I used to play on at the Omniplex when I was a kid. I thought he was doing better climbing, so I wasn’t right under him. But he wasn’t looking where he was going (distracted by many exciting happenings in that big area), and he fell. Nose appears to be undamaged, although there was a small amount of blood.

Then Mommy and Forest ate Mexican food in Oklahoma City before heading home to Shawnee.  We made a very big mess at the table.  I did not take a picture of the destruction.
