Saturday morning Justin and I went to the Science Center. Brenda had signed us up for a dinosaur class – “Digging up the past” as a Father’s day gift. Unfortunately, when we got there they informed us it had been cancelled. They offered to let us do a robotics class instead, but Justin wasn’t interest.
Instead, we took advantage of our time in other ways. We looked at thier prehistoric exhibits, fossils, models, ancient tools and arrowheads, etc. Next we did the Lego Mindstorm — which is a lot more like programming a robot than playing with lego’s. Our first attempt to slay the robot dragon with our robot boxer had a slight bug – missing the last instruction, but we quickly fixed the problem. We added steps to have the robot do a victory dance then punch the dragon again. Since we still had time, we built a second robot the blinded the dragon. It worked flawlessly on the first try.
We completed the Science Center trip by building the arch, exploring the space station, using the robotic arm training facility, watching the stars, and finally building the world. Since we are members at the Science Center, the whole trip with parking, lunch, all the exhibits, was less than $10.
On the trip home, we passed by a golf course, and I mentioned that we needed to get out and play again. He thought we should do that instead of our original plan of going swimming. We hit the little Par 3 – pitch and putt course on Hwy K. I shot 2 over for the front 9, but the back 9 started off a little rough (back to back double bogeys on 11 and 12). So the 13th hole I told myself to relax and just play a safe shot to the left-middle of the green (there was a lake to the right, but the flag was to the right of middle as well). I took my lob wedge, did a 3/4 swing, and dropped the ball right where I wanted it. It bounced once and started rolling toward the cup. I started thinking — No Way –, and yet it kept rolling…until
Hole in one.
And Justin was my only witness. Not that was a Father’s day gift. After the game, we went home, grabbed Danielle and went swimming. To finish the night off, I went to see X-men 2 (after the kids went to bed).
