Over the last few years we've started to do birthday activities instead of big birthday parties. We showed Levi a few options to do for his birthday this year and he picked the Telus Spark Science Center, I think it was the huge slide that convinced him to go. There's a dinosaur exhibit there right now and it ends Sunday, so Dave happened to have Thursday off so we went early! Im so glad we went, Levi loved the dinosaur exhibit. We've never been to the spark before and I wasn't sure what to expect. Its quite expensive and I couldn't find coupons, but in the end I think it was worth the money. We ended up being there for 4 hours, which was a perfect amount of time. Will was past nap time and did so good, he was asleep within minutes of leaving.
Wills newest smile. ha! And of course, it became a sword.
Before heading into the Dinosaur exhibit.
Not sure who had more fun playing, Dave or the boys. Each display allowed the kids to interact with the dinosaur, some had pulleys, wheels and even xbox controllers to move the dinosaur.
Learning about how rivers are made.
Dave helped both boys climb the tower to be able to do the slide. Will needed help with the whole thing but Levi only needed help up the first rope ladder. They loved the slide! You can see that they are adding more behind them to the playground, should be really fun when its all done.
They had a table out with all different parts and tools to play with. Levi was in heaven!
And Will just loved it for the "swords" aka the screw drivers.
They have a smaller children's museum part that was so fun for Will. I didn't get any pictures of the boys in the big playground but there was lots to do in there, I'm glad we did it last. Don't think they would have wanted to leave if we went there first.
This perfectly sums up Levi for the whole day, he just bounced from one station to the other.
Will was soaked after the water table! Thankfully it was hot out and he dried quickly.
The boys have asked several times to go back since, so all in all a great day!
