June 30, 2010 64 degrees at 7:30 am. 94 by midday.
The cousins all went to the Denver Museum of Natural History. Cool exhibit called the human body experience. At the beginning you get a card that records your body input. You bring it around to all the stations and it classifies your body’s response to various inputs (sunscreen exhibit was totally scary), like hiking, riding a bike, cold and hot. Then, they print out a record of your body health as you leave. Oh yeah and I got to extract DNA from Wheat germ; I am scientist hear me roar!!?!
After a lunch at home, we went swimming at the Lowry pool. It made for a nice cool afternoon (temps of 94 in Denver) at the pool. The kids were all jumping and doing various dives. Quinn wanted me to do a cannon ball so he could ride the wave (like the ocean?) After an amazing dinner of homemade pesto from the Niles garden, we all watched Wipeout on TV. I felt a bit like a voyeur, and I can’t believe how hard I laughed! I guess it’s true what they say “It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt; then its frickin’ hilarious!”
