Science City at Union Station (Kansas City)

As you know, I recently started writing for iFamilyKC online and one of the perks is that I get to go to some pretty cool events and activities around the metro. Most recently, I went to Science City at Union Station and had a blast. I’ll be sure to post a link to the review on my Facebook page (have you ‘liked’ it yet?!) as soon as it’s up. In the meantime…

I had a really great time at Science City and it isn’t just because the inner nerd in me squealed with delight when I found out we were going, but because I think it’s a wonderful place for people of any age to spend the day. One thing that I thought was weird (and also very cool) is that, unless you’ve been there, you really have no idea what to expect when you first get there. In order to get into Science City you first walk through the gift shop and then into a long hallway with only a few things (like a tube with scarves ‘floating’ in the air and a solar-powered car on display).

I will admit that when we first walked into the hallway I thought to myself, “Really?! This is it?!” but once you navigate through, it’s like entering into a whole new world…and I loved it. Take a look:

We Went to Paint, Glaze, and Fire! (And I Have Some Exciting News!)

Paint, Glaze, & Fire

I had the opportunity to take C to a local ceramic art studio called Paint, Glaze, & Fire for a fun event hosted by iFamilyKC. I am so excited to announce that I will be blogging for iFamilyKC in addition to my posts here on It’s An Ordinary Blog. You can find my first post, about the event, here. I wanted to talk a little bit more on my blog about our experience at Paint, Glaze, & Fire and share a few extra photos that I snapped while we were there.

I definitely think places like this are a great way to make creative gifts for special days in your life and I may or may not (I can’t give too much away because my husband reads my blog, hi honey!) be planning a little something for my husband for Father’s Day.

I think those mugs are a lot better (and more meaningful) than anything you could purchase pre-made.

Next time we go I’m definitely planning to try one of their Mocha Frappes (they looked really good).

If I get a chance to go with my girlfriends for a GNO I have my eye set on one of those owls. Whooo wants one?!

This photo doesn’t even do justice to the amount of ceramic pieces they have on hand.

Overall Paint, Glaze, & Fire was a great experience for C. I think it’s an activity that’s probably more suitable for older children but I know that C will be thrilled when we get our pieces back next week. It’ll be a fun reminder when she’s older of an event with mommy…and isn’t that really the point anyway?! She was so tired when we were getting ready to leave that she plopped down on one of their chairs and didn’t want to get up:
