Long Time Friends and the Science Museum Oklahoma

Michael and I have been friends with one couple since before we even got married. We can go for years without being together but then when we do get together once again, we just click and never have an awkward moment.

We were blessed to have them come for a visit this week. You see, they live have the country away so we don’t get to see each other very often.

In order to make this feel like a vacation for us as well, we decided to go to Oklahoma City for a couple days. Tiffany really wanted to swim too. We decided to go for a couple of days. The first day we went to the Science Museum Oklahoma. Even though it is geared for children we had fun. Plus it was a hundred degrees outside!!! Yep, the air conditioning was a welcome relief.

Steph, Tiff, and I ~ Lifeofjoy.mePaul and Sean ~ Lifeofjoy.meMichael and Paul did the arch activity.

Michael & Paul Arch ~ Lifeofjoy.meYeah, they figured out their mistake and started again. ;)

We worked together to lift the block by the handle and place it on the stand and then moved it back to the ground.

Working together ~ Lifeofjoy.meWe all enjoyed the mirror maze.

Mirror Maze ~ Lifeofjoy.meWe also had fun with the blue screen. Stephanie’s shirt was blue so it became invisible on the screen. :D

Blue Screen fun ~ Lifeofjoy.meI do have to say though that the main reason I wanted to go to the Science Museum Oklahoma was to see the planetarium. I hadn’t been to a planetarium since my college days. I was so looking forward to it . . . I love the stars.

As Tiffany put it, it was underwhelming. The speaker only pointed out about three constellations. Well to be truthful, he pointed out Cassiopeia by only circling the area, not connecting the individual stars. He did even less with the Big and Little Dippers and threw up pictures of big and little bears but not showing which stars or how they were connected. Then he went on to show Saturn and Pluto and three galaxies.

Considering the show was called, Tonight’s Sky, it would have been sooooo much better if he had actually shown the constellations visible that night in the area. And if he wanted to show planets, it would have been better if he would have shown the planets that were visible in the sky that night.  Oh well, now I know. Maybe the Tulsa planetarium is better. ;)

Well, I’ll share more next week.

Until then, God bless,

Michele ºÜº
