I Actually Made Plans This Weekend, Despite The Forecast
Guys, I'm not a huge "doing stuff" person. When I get home, I want my couch, I want YouTube, and I want my cat. And maybe Husbando.
So when it comes to a weekend, my ideal weekend is to nap, sleep, laze around, etc. I don't know if I just need to charge my batteries or what, maybe I'm just a naturally slothful person. But Husbando saw something on the internet, and thought the girls would really like to do it. It's called the Museum of Illusions up in Kansas City.
And admittedly, it looks pretty cool:
The Museum of Illusions in Kansas City brings you a space suitable both for social and entertaining tours into the world of illusions which has delighted all generations. It’s a unique place for new experiences and fun with friends and family. Not only is it a place for children who adore visiting, but also a place for parents, couples, grandmothers and grandfathers.
See what else we offer, you won’t believe your eyes!
Be brave enough to jump in an illusion created by the Vortex Tunnel! It will drive you crazy and make you believe you’re heavily struggling just to make a step forward through a rotating cylinder – on a surface so stable and flat! See yourself on the ceiling of the room, let yourself free in an Infinity room, resist the laws of gravity and size ratio, and take pictures of yourself in EVERY POSSIBLE POSE!
Deceive your eyes and entertain the mind!
Enjoy our collection of holograms, look closer at every optical illusion and observe thoroughly each installation. They are such a brilliant, playful reminder that our assumptions about the world we perceive are often, nothing but a specter of illusions. The genuine heritage of showpieces will most certainly make your jaw drop! Amusing and awesome tricks will teach you about vision, perception, the human brain and science so it will be easier to perceive why your eyes see things which your brain cannot understand. Make sure you visit our playroom with intriguing and educational games and puzzles. These brain bashers are definitely great fun but tend to be frustrating as well.
So sure, earlier this week I got online and bought us some tickets. It looks like fun, we love puzzles and all that kind of stuff. But then, come Thursday or so, we hear that it's supposed to snow Friday and Saturday. Not like it was last time, but still. So, does that mean we give up our plans and go another weekend, or do we brave it and get out? It's a long term debate in my household. Most of the time I would just say, let's reschedule. But this time... I'm conflicted. The girls have very busy schedules with school, and we don't get to hang out with them as much as we used to. And really, it's supposed to snow maybe one to three inches, so is that hazardous? Probably not. Heck, you can't really even say for sure it's GOING to snow, it might just not happen. Then we gave up our plans for what? But at the same time, if it does snow, and KC doesn't clear the roads properly, then what? Are we stuck there?
Eugh. Conflict. I'm not sure what to do. What would you do? Do you cancel or change plans if it's supposed to snow?
