I traveled home to Cleveland this weekend to celebrate my mother’s retirement (as she would say, “from a job she hated”) after 42 years of service. I drove so it took about 11 very long hours, but since being here, I’ve done some pretty fun things with my son. I took tons of pictures and these are a few of my favorite:

My son and I also went to the Great Lakes Science Center. We had a really fun time. The Omnimax experience is very different from the Imax experience. Not only is the Omnimax screen six-stories-high, but there are times when you feel like the seats are rotating to capture a better point of view. Journey to the South Pacific was the film we chose to see.

In addition to the film, we visited several exhibits. My son’s favorite was the Lego Exhibit and play area:

Of course there were interactive science exhibits and many things to learn about the body, DNA, and the solar system but we spent most of our time building Lego cars. It was a fun time.
