Ontario Science Centre

familyWith the day off work and the rain coming down, we decided to postpone our trip to Ontario Place and try and trick the kids into learning something at the Ontario Science Centre.

I suppose when you decide to have kids you also agree to give up a small piece of your soul for their betterment. Proof of this is the fact I spent most of the day in a section they call KidSpark. For James and Michelle, this was heaven on earth, an orgy of air guitar, house building, simulated shopping, water play area and even side-by-side ball racetracks. It was an ankle biter's paradise. Thankfully, there was a fantastic new exhibition that we could all dig.

Animal Grossology promised "some of the slimiest, stinkiest and downright yuckiest creatures on earth". This appealled to the one year old, the four year old and the two 30-somethings in our crowd. If it was gross it was there and it was all as interesting as hell. When James made the cow belch, he lit up like a Christmas tree. I've never been prouder of the boy.

It was a great way to spend a rainy day. The kids had their KidSpark, we all had our Grossology and I've got a new photoset.
