But we had fun here on our own. Since it was cold and rainy we decided to try out the Mobius Kids Museum. It was so fun for the kids and we ended up getting season passes because A) they were cheap and B) its gonna be a long cold winter!
Then on Monday we took a day trip out to see the Grand Coulee Dam. The largest source of energy in North America. There were security guards everywhere, and we are among the few who were able to drive across the top since 9/11... But amazing. Makes electricity for 11 states and is only running at 30%. The kids were cute at the visitors center making energy and playing with the jack hammer and giant wrench. We watched a movie about how the region was formed and during the ice age there were a series of enormous floods that carved the land scape around here. Who knew but that these rolling hills that make for beautiful wheat fields are really rippes 30 stories high, miles long, and 200 yards between... can you imagine the size of the "puddle" that would create ripples so large? The theory was only proven after arial photos made it possible to see them for what they are... Really makes one feel insignificant in the grand scheme of things, and makes Al Gore laughable when he thinks my SUV is causing major damage to anything. I would have never thought to go see it but am grateful for the expirience. Thanks Mom and Dad for the fun weekend.
