Science Museum

Last Saturday our family went to the Richmond Science Museum. When we first walked in we saw a giant hanging pendulum rotating around knocking down pegs. The Mindbender Manshion was a new attraction going around figuring out different mindbenders in order to find 4 different passwords. There was also a new shark exhibit where you could pet little sharks and look at different sand sculptures. Victoria and Andy also pet a corn snake.

Maymont Park

Today our family went to Maymont Park. We first walked around the Children Farm. We continued walking down a big hill noticing that most of the exhibits were empty and being cleaned out. After we went past some more empty cages into the Japanese Garden. As we were leaving we passed the Italian garden with a lot of pretty flowers.
