This year for Christmas, Jen and I gave my mom 12 pre-planned monthly excursions for the year. Some of these are with kids and some without. :) To start off January, we ventured out to the city for a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry. (On a side note, we went on a free day, scored free street parking, and brought our own lunch. So we had a great day in the city for the price of gas money!)
It had been awhile since we had been there and it was awesome! There were all the old exhibits I remembered, but lots of really great new ones. We had a great time exploring and learning a little something along the way.
Had to get a picture of the kids in this one. I have a picture from my film days of Cort and I posing here.

They also had these neat little science kits the kids could choose from to assemble and bring home-so nice!
