The DoSeum

Over the weekend we took a day trip to San Antonio to visit their new children's museum, called the DoSeum.

We were hungry when we got into town, so we stopped for lunch at Green. We started with chips and salsa and we laughed when our waitress brought us a whole squirt bottle of salsa because we were going through it. We are a family of salsa lovers and it was some good salsa!

We also had some edamame covered in sweet chili sauce. Yum!

I had the Orange Tofu Bowl. Popcorn tofu tossed in orange chili sauce, broccoli, and brown rice. It was incredible.

Tony had the Mediterranean bowl, a tortilla-lined bowl of falafels, dolmas, tabouli, kale, pecan hummus, tzatziki, carrots, tomatoes, and olives. Green is probably Tony's favorite vegetarian restaurant and he loves this bowl.

We were stuffed but wanted just a bite of something sweet, so we shared a vegan chocolate chip cookie.

On to the museum! At the entrance, Olivia was charmed by the wind tunnel where she could flap around in beautiful butterfly wings.

Jackson was drawn to the hands-on experiments.

Olivia followed. It's so cool to see them trying things out and seeing what will happen. Giving those brains a good workout!

Tony, too!

Building together.

Next, Jackson wanted to make some robots battle for supremacy.

Worthy opponents.

Let the battle begin!

It was a gorgeous day so next we checked out the outdoor play area.

Good balance required!

Water play area.

The museum is huge, so the kids were basically flitting from one display to the next, wanting to try everything. We didn't even come close to doing it all. The make-believe grocery store was so detailed, it included a butcher counter with "meat" slicer. Um, ew?

There was also a car for the kids to pretend to be little mechanics.

We stayed right up until the minute the museum closed, and there was still so much more we could have explored. We will have to make another trip some time!
