This weekend we visited my husband’s sister in Boston and decided to take the kids to the Museum of Science. The last time we visited the museum was during our year of homeschooling Lillia, in December of 2012. Comparing my photos from the two trips I noticed a few things: my kids have grown a ton, and so has my husband’s beard; my photography has changed a lot thanks to my 50mm f1.8 lens, Photoshop, and two years’ worth of practice; I used to have a really annoying habit of breaking my posts up into multiple parts. I remember two years ago when I took those photos I thought they were amazing, and I was totally shocked that I was actually the person who took them! Now I look at them and see that they are not terrible but they represent a younger, less experienced photographer (and probably a younger, less experienced me, too). In any case, you can look back at our photos from the first trip here 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Many of the exhibits have changed in the past two years, so it was really fun to see some old favorites but also to experience some new things. Lillia’s favorite part of our visit was definitely the Hall of Human Life area, where she got to measure her gait, her body temperature, and all sorts of other things (check out our infrared “family portrait” here). Zane’s favorite part was the baby chicks, of course. He really didn’t want to leave. All in all, a great trip!
