To infinity and beyond…

If your kids are fascinated by outer space, you should definitely check out the Columbia Memorial Space Center.  The museum is located in Downey and they are open Tuesday through Sunday.  I recommend this for kids over 5 but they do have a small toddler play area upstairs.  Additionally, if your child is into Legos, there is a really cool Robotics Lab where you can program a robot on a Lego Mission Mars computer and test your skills with collecting, surveying and rescuing.  There are lots of hands on experiences for the little ones.

On a side note, just because I happen to love it, there’s a Porto’s bakery cafe just a few minutes from there.  Stop by and pick up some yummy food and pastries. yummm!!
