Girls…take care of your skin!

“Expedition Health is about YOUR human body-how it is constantly changing and adapting in ways you can see, measure, and optimize through the choices you make.”

Hands On  |  At Exhibition Health you can see how you may look in the future if you smoke, drink or don’t use sun block. All I can say is, “Girls take care of your skin!”

What is your mph when walking?

The girls walked in front of a blue screen and the image was captured on a monitor hanging on the wall. It measured their speed while walking, stride length and energy. I thought this was cute to see their pictures on the monitor, little sister following big sister.

Little scientist.

In the lab we performed experiments on water fleas. We first tested the affect caffeine had on the heart rate of the water flea, then tested alcohol.

Poor little water flea.

Alexandra was more into it than Parker. But it was still cool. We would have performed more experiments but Parker was bored. There were many to choose from.

Lion Pride

I am a little weirded out by the  “stuffed” animals in the displays. It is so real looking that I expect the animals to move…and then they don’t. Creepy.

Today…at the pool

Today, as I was swimming laps the river pool, I watched a women walking (as in exercising) in the pool and talking on her iPhone. I was waiting for her to drop it in the water, but, sadly, it didn’t happen. Then, she moved over to the kiddie pool, sat down in the water and continued to talk. Weird.

Favorite treat after swimming…Target hot dog and Icee

These fountains are across the bridge from the Ice Centre Skate Rink. They are free and a perfect way to cool off on a hot day.

Before we left, the girls were soaked!
