Discovery Place

One afternoon Papa, Derek, Ethan and I went to Discovery Place. There was a shipwreck exhibit that we thought Ethan would like because he has been fascinated with the Titanic ever since we read a Magic Tree House book about it. Nana and Aubrey stayed home because we were not sure if it would hold her interest and that was the right decision.

They had a lot of items displayed that came from shipwrecks, specifically the S.S. Republic. We watched a short video on the recovery of some of the items and Ethan liked finding ones that he had seen in the video.

There was another section open that had really cool things to do. Here Ethan is laying on a bed of nails.

He really enjoyed these flat building blocks.

Here is the video of them. I filmed it sideways, thinking I could flip it like I can with my camera and obviously that is not the case!
