Friday, October 7, 2011 San Antonio

Went to soccer games in Austin on Saturday (Lexi got MVP and Jaeden outran everyone on the field!).  Lots o fun there.  On Sunday we wandered down to the Witte Museum for the opening weekend of Shipwreck! Pirates & Treasure.  Very interesting exhibit.....the kids liked all the hands on activities.  I learned a favorite factoid: pirates had different flags to fly to identify which pirate ran the ship. The most familiar pirate flag (shown) is actually associated with "Calico Jack", hmmmm the inspiration for Jack Sparrow maybe?

If you live in the San Antonio area you can visit the Witte for FREE on Tuesdays from 3 to 8pm! (You have to pay to visit the special exhibits). If you have kids this is perfect time to check out the HEB Science Tree House!

(Please note: I was not paid or perked to say nice things about the Witte.  I just love it.)
