The OMSI is the Portland Science museum - last night it was open late for adults only.

The main exhibit was on Da Vinci - they had really cool replicas made on from Da Vinci's invention sketches in his famous notebooks. This picture was taken before we found out pictures weren't allowed.

Da Vinci also apparently invented infinity.

There was a giant room filled with foam balls that you could "experiment" with.

Brian "experimented" with magic.

Renee "experimented" by cleaning up after everyone. The ball room had never been cleaner.

This guy had lots of hair.

This guy didn't have any hair.

We missed the bus on the way home, but got to walk back over the bridge on foot.

There was quite a nice view of the city.


Check out the spinning wheel of death!

Watch ot Pixar, there's a new animation studio in town!

A Wompin' Catch

Ingrid and Renee (Mostly Ingrid) made this fish bed for Olive on Renee's trip home. She really seems to like it...and we thought she didn't even like the water!

Tax day!

8 hours in and Brian is starting to dislike Uncle Sam (coincidentally the only uncle he doesn't get a birthday card from)

Renee's Shooting Guns?

When I was home Tony and Dad took me shooting. I have shot a rifle before but never a pistol. In my opinion it was much scarier, but we had fun too!

If you look close you can see the shell from the bullet in each photo!

I needed some help, it was an interesting experience. However, it was really cool to learn and have such a great teacher! Thanks Tony!

Tossed Olive

And Renee was worried that Olive wouldn't have fun while she was gone....

Late Birthday Picture!

I turned 1, on March 8th.
