act 2: cosi

After Dan finished work on Wednesday, we drove to Columbus for the second half of spring break. We stayed at the Residence Inn downtown, and it was really nice to have the extra space. We got pizza for dinner and then walked along the Scioto River for a bit to enjoy the beautiful spring evening. Back at the hotel, Mae got us hooked on watching "Is It Cake?" on Netflix. It's is a game show where the bakers have to make cakes that look like everyday objects (e.g. a sneaker) and the judges have to pick out the cake from a lineup of real, non-cake items.
On Thursday morning, we walked to COSI (Center of Science and Industry). We hit up all of Mae's favorites from the last time we visited: dinosaurs, gadgets, kids zone, and the submarine. While Mae was waiting to climb down into the submarine, Colin had fun scooping and carrying water in the Oceans area.
Both kids left the room soaked! Good thing Dan remembered to pack dry clothes!
Mae was insistent that we go to the show in the planetarium! It was really cool, so I'm glad we got to see it towards the end of our visit. Colin had stayed awake the whole day, but finally fell asleep cuddling me to the soothing sound of Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about dark matter.
We had lots of fun learning about science and energy and space and dinosaurs and everything!
