The kids had a week off in October so we took advantage and hit the road. Our first stop was my parents house. While there we went exploring at the Science Museum of Minnesota (SMM) with my parents, sister-in-law Holly, and cousins Ethan and Hannah. As a child the SMM was a favorite field trip destination of mine. It was a trip down memory lane to get to take the kids. It was funny though, that the location had moved some eleven years ago and I didn't know it. We spent the day playing and learning with some serious hands on exploration. We look forward to visiting again sometime.
