Would you like to hear about the Raney vacation? (Part 3)

On December 28, the third day of our vacation, we were supposed to go to Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. When we got there, they were totally sold out!

That didn't stop us from having loads of fun. We got on our iPhones and found a really neat museum called the Health Adventure. What an amazing find! This museum was designed for little boys.

We started at the tools and gears table.

This exhibit teaches you how a car has to actually go farther when it is closer to the outside of the track. It had buttons and made noise, so Cohen loved it!

They had about 10 of these little things you could drop a ball into and watch it roll out. If you look close, you can see the one in the background that sent the ball over hills.

We learned how to brush our teeth.

And how to floss.

Then we spent about an hour at this table. It had a hose hooked up to it with air coming out, so you could balance a ball on the top of it, or turn it sideways and shoot the ball at other people.

While we were there, they did an exhibit on liquid nitrogen. This was really neat and very educational!

And we couldn't leave North Carolina without planking while we were there...right?

If you are ever near Asheville, NC, I would highly recommend this museum.
