Today we took Noah to the Ithaca Sciencecenter. He thought the dinosaur skull was pretty interesting.

Unfortunately Chad refused to have Noah hold the sign that said "greetings from atop the triceratops," which would have been cute. But I digress.

Noah's favorite activity by far was the duck pond. Never has he imagined so many rubber ducks in one place!

With duck slides! And waterfalls! And other kids (not pictured) to stare at!

We spent a lot of time following Noah around as he toddled around the museum, stopping now and then to work on something.

Like putting metal rods into giant tinkertoys.

The point of this particular exhibit was to build up a structure that would balance on a small base, to illustrate the concept of center of gravity, but for an almost-one-year-old, I think "the metal stick goes into the hole" is cognitive leap enough.

As we walked around we would sometimes pass an exhibit that was playing music. This was especially cute, as Noah would stop and dance a little bit before moving on.

Before leaving, we all got to touch a 4.5 billion year old meteor. This was definitely one of the coolest things I have ever touched.

See Noah? This rock is only 4,499,999,999 years older than you are!
