This morning, we joined friends for a trip to the Montreal Science Centre.

 

Our favourite exhibit was the ‘Human’ exhibit. The picture above is of our monkeys climbing up the hominin tree and then down to our species.

Zahra running to catch an antelope for our dinner: a game of pacing yourself.

The amazing body and all the exercise it can and should do!

What’s going on when you sleep…

 

 

 

 

 

 

womb 2

 

Put on the pregnant belly and get an ultrasound. Shocking news: Noah’s having twins!

 

 

 

 

 

 

womb

 

This part of the exhibit allowed the kids to “crawl back inside the womb”. They didn’t want to come out.

 

 

 

dinosaur

 

Dinosaurs was a bit anti-climactic, in my opinion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

tech man

 

Zahra’s favourite part of this exhibit was seeing the tech man opening up a “rock” to get the big T-Rex working again.
