Another universe...

Yesterday we went down to my parents place and celebrated my mum's belated birthday, which was just really relaxing and nice.

Today we went to another universe... well we went to Danfoss Universe which is a theme park based on teaching kids about science and technology. My husband and I have been there once before, back when they opened in 2005. Back then we weren't too impressed, and I remember we thought I was more of a kids park. Well my parents have season passes (because the live only 10 minutes away, and every once in a while they can go to a free concert there), and on Sundays they can each bring in a guest for free.

So we decided yesterday that we wanted to go today, because there have been a lot done to the theme park over the last 5 years. I had seen in some commercials that you could ride a segway, and well I wanted to try that. My mum said there was always a long line at the segways, but if we got there by the time they opened it wouldn't be too bad. So we went there at 10 a.m. And we were first in line for the segway...

It was really fun, and the hardest thing was actually to keep it completely still. I want a segway now, wouldn't it be cool riding that for work? Well it is probably not going to happen, unless I win the lottery or the prices will really go down:)

We also tried a few other activities, and had quite a lot of fun. We were making waves, on a thing called the human wave... well I was the worst of the 4 of us, and my mum kicked our asses really bad, but hey she got season pass so she has probably been training:)

We also tried the tread mill, so I won't need to go to the gym today, I was competing against my dad and lost again... and my husband and my mum were competing against each other.

We tried a lot of other activities as well, and we walked around the park, which is really nice, with different cool buildings and beautiful flowers all around.
We were there for a few hours, which was fine since we had gotten in for free. If you have to pay full price you should spent the whole day there. In the parking lot they had another attraction where you could lift a car, and here is a picture of my very strong husband lifting a car:)

Unlike last time we were a bit more impressed by the park, but it will probably be another 4 or 5 years before we go again. But we do believe it will be fun to bring a kid there, especially when he or she will reach the age where they will start understand what is going on with the technology.

So all in all we had a nice, relaxing and fun weekend...
