Field Trip - IMAX

So in Seattle the Pacific Science Center has the coolest IMAX movies. (Oh and they are free with certain memberships!)  They are usually about 45 minutes long.  We recently saw Hubble 3-D and I cannot rave enough about this film. I promise it's not just because Leo DiCaprio is the voice-over.  First my boys loved it, it shows all kinds of cool things about space exploration, Astronaut training, how to make a floating taco, what life is like in space and a pretty cool, intense mission to fix the Hubble telescope.
I loved it for the spectacularly beautiful photos from the Hubble, galaxies far, far away, star nurseries, I felt in awe of Our Creator.  I actually was very moved by it and learned a lot.  I highly recommend this as a rainy day outing and it's one your husband will like too! Plus who doesn't look great in those 3-D glasses?

My kids would love that IMAX, I'll have to watch for it here. We get them rotating through 2 at a time.

3-D is definitely the way of the future. I will keep my eye open for that one. My kids LOVE 3-D, well mostly, sometimes Eliza is a bit freaked out. Take them to see "How to Train Your Dragon" ADORABLE!!!

We usually had a family membership to the Pacific Science Center while the kids were young - worth every penny. I love that place. Plus it's a great place to take visitors.
