The Nagasawa family trip to France: May 1 - 15, 2011
Today, after we had yogurt and fruit for breakfast, we drove to Cite L'Espace, a theme park with space exploration as the main theme. After getting a little lost, we wound up finding it.
Sleeping sacks for astronauts.
We watched a 3D movie about the Hubble telescope. What amazing pictures it is able to take!
Then we had fun on a moon-gravity ride. You were harnessed to something that slowed your descent.
Notice the big strong movements Ming made?
Here's my attempt.
Then John and I went on a human gyroscope ride that spun us around on two axes.
John and Zoe filled rockets with water and compressed air...
John pumped up the rocket...
Zoe pumped up the rocket too
And launched the rocket!
We arrived back at the Laine home and were greeted by Spanish tapas.
A little lounging around.
On the menu: artichoke hearts, mozzarella cheese with herbs, olives, chorizo, crackers with cheese and jam!
The kids after dinner and showers. Time for bed!
