153 of 365 memories...What if I puke??

Thursday was a pretty nasty day here and we had to take it easy for the first 48 hours with stitch face. So I decided it would be the perfect day to take the kids to the Bodies Exhibition. Alex is not very good with bodily stuff. Let's just say there will be no "paging Dr. Alexander Johnson in his future. Poor boy can't watch anything that has to do will blood or the possibility of blood. So yes his mother decided what a better way to spend the day but looking at real dead people :)

Honestly, I watched the special about it and researched it online and I really thought EVERYONE including pukey boy would like it. And guess what, I WAS RIGHT!!

He did say when we first walked in that he thought he might just walk right threw because he thought he might puke, but after he calmed down and started to read about what we were looking at he did so much better. Alex is not a visual child. He has to READ it to understand it, much like my husband. Where as the other 2 are like me, we need to see it, touch it, smell it to understand what it is. I think that's why Jakob, Hannah and I enjoy our food SO much more than Alex and Brian.

The nervous system part truly can hold your attention for hours. It was absolutely the most interesting thing I've ever seen.
Anyway, we had a really nice time and the exhibit is AMAZING! It is a bit pricey but it was SO WORTH it!

This came to our science museum a while back. I didn't go. Felt too much like nursing school to me (we had to work with a cadaver). Now, I'm regretting not going because I heard it was amazing.

You're such a good mom to take your kids to this stuff! WTG!
