July 18 and July 19

Friday night we went to the Children's Imagination Museum in Old Town. This week, we did experiments on our five senses of touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste. There were experiment stations set up all over the museum. There was one that we liked the most, though. That was in the music room where Ashley got a prize for identifying 23 different sounds played on a CD player. Then, we all played with the musical instruments and took some pictures:

After we played with just about everything in that room, we went exploring around the museum some more. Here are some pictures of that:
Cookie decorating,

Does this taste salty, bitter, sweet, or sour?

Having fun with Bernoulli!

Saturday was a busy day. We got up early and went to Old Town to ride the horse-drawn trolley up and down Front Street. I gave Ashley the camera and told her to take pictures of our morning. Here's what she took:

After that, Ashley and I went to Gold's Gym to work out. I dropped Ashley off in the child care center which, by the way is awesome! They taught the kids anatomy and physiology of muscles and about water and then they took them into the aerobics room and applied it in a half-hour workout. How cool is that!

Then, that afternoon, we went to the Temecula Valley Museum. I gave Ashley the camera and let her take pictures of whatever she wanted. Here's what she took:

Mommy and Ashley:

Then we played dress-up!

Then, that evening, we went to Longshadow Ranch in Wine Country. We got a bottle of wine, some BBQ food, listened to this two-person band who tried to play classic rock, walked around in the grapevines, and mommy got drunk!

On the way back to the hotel, we stopped off and got some ice cream to eat later. Ashley decided not to use a spoon....
