We went to the Science Museum and saw a really cool exhibit on the Human Body. Everything in it (bones, organs, etc.) was real. They even had full bodies standing up--very cool but still a little creepy. Drew enjoyed playing with the displays (in the museum not the bodies! LOL!) and we took a little walk on the nature trail. Drew liked the oversized "Operation" game and kept saying "toast" when she was using the tongs. I guess because our toaster keeps "eating" things I have to fish it out with the tongs! LOL!
We also rode around up the mountain and stopped to take some photos.
We had fun but came home a day early to avoid any delays because of Hurricane Gustav. Hot Springs was filling up with evacuees and the stores and gas stations were getting crazy. Before leaving Hot Springs we stocked up on bottled water, juice, snacks, and 4 full diesel cans. To my disappointment (crazy I know!) we didn't need any of those things! There was no traffic, no lines at gas stations, and we didn't even lose power. In fact the 20" of predicted rain was really only about 3"! And that was spread out over several days!
