March March March!

I can NOT believe it is already April. March was amazing. We just had spring break and now Micah is back to the call of duty in his surgery rotation. Fun times.

Before spring break we had a visit from Micah’s sister! We went downtown and all around and back again.

The Museum of Science and Industry! My favorite place!! They have a new “Science Storms” exhibit which is awesome. They had a giant simulated tornado and a Tesla Coil!!! See below!!

We also got to be pretend doctors at this live exhibit where you can work with a patient dummy “Stan”. As you can imagine, this is a hoot when you are doing it with an actual Medical student.

And I always love watching the baby chicks.

We still had the museum pass after Kristen left, so, WE WENT AGAIN!

ROBOT!!!!!

Stan was a patient dummy, i'm not sure I would have been so patient with people poking me and stuff. I'm sorry, I just love puns
