Fun at the Science Center
The Science Center with its Zimmerman's Orange Production exhibit was what my granddaughters longed to see again. So to the Science Center we went but with a detour at the Briar Patch restaurant in Winter Park first for lunch and dessert: thus the huge chocolate layered cake.
Next the Science Center. Fortunately they had a reciprocal family membership and we all went in for free. In fact, if I had not been with them, I still would have gotten in for free since all Orange County School teachers if they show their badges can go in gratis.
There was lots to see, but we focused on the oranges which by the way really need to be replenished since there were not enough oranges for all the patrons, and the lack of oranges was a little frustrating for some of the little ones. Just look at the picture of the girls, one reaching in sadly for a non-existent orange, and the other holding up her almost empty tray for oranges that would not come. I don't usually complain but the stationary bicycle and the whole comptraction needs to be oiled so all children can take part. Oranges need to be plentiful. Even if we have had a cold snap that shouldn't affect the plastic ones.
I don't think the Science Center administration realizes how many children enjoy that exhibit and how it represents this county. So if you are out there and read this, please fix it! Thank you.
