Hi friends! We’ve reached that point in the summer where it suddenly hits you that school is about to start, and you try to cram in all the fun activities that you’ve been meaning to do all summer. One thing on our list? The McWane Science Center in Birmingham.
We’d been wanting to check this out for a long time, so when some friends from school invited us along for a little road trip, we quickly agreed! I’m so glad we went– it was a really fun, cool place for little kids (and big kids…and adults…).
It was a little stressful at times, just because there was SO much to do, and it was really crowded, just on a Tuesday morning. But it was totally worth it– and I feel like we really only scratched the surface. I’m excited to go back again.
When Lila and I got home, I was really happy to see that Ryan (who stayed in Huntsville to do work) had prepared dinner in the slow cooker. It is SO nice to come home to dinner, ready and done. I really need to take better advantage of our slow cooker once school starts and the craziness really picks up.
He made barbecued chicken in the cooker, plus a yummy lime cilantro slaw to go on top:
