Vulcan!

Vulcan!

This machine is a contraption that propels a ball around a little course, and at the end of the ball's cycle, it hit something that makes Vulcan ding his hammer. Nate loved this and would have watched it for hours.

We just discovered the bubble gun, which produces zillions of bubbles. This and a kiddie pool are instant fun in our house.

They even had a mini store. Here's Nate working the conveyor belt. Does this mean he can get a part time job at Publix, or even better, Whole Foods?

They have an area in the dinosaur exhibit at the McWane Center where kids can dig for dinosaur "bones." Here is Nate doing his "I'm doing important stuff, now please leave me alone" look.
