For our first day in town, it was a Mommy and boys day, since M was at the college presenting.
The next piece of awesome was that they had games. This is one of those places where people clearly go to camp, and it made me happy to introduce my sons to pick up sticks, which they'd never played before. The atmosphere was funky and cool too; another piece of awesome.
Buffalo Museum of Science. On the way up, I saw they had an exhibit on Mummies, which I thought they boys would enjoy, and the deal was even sweeter when I found a Groupon.

The boys really enjoyed this, but of course it transferred sideways. It was a game to get your heart racing and to test your reaction time. E loved pressing the button. Over. and Over.
This design thing was so fun; you had to figure out how to move the ball from place to place using the different tubes.
In the end, we could not take photos in the Mummies exhibit, but you probably wouldn't want to see photos of them anyway. It was really interesting, but the boys got pretty freaked out about halfway through. When they told M about their visit, they kept telling him this or that happened before or after the part with the zombies.
I have a friend from Buffalo, and we were able to get together for lunch. The kids had fun playing and making funny faces for the camera...
And it was so nice to see my friend1
Ted's Hot Dogs, since she said that's one of the things people like to eat when they come to Buffalo. I read some Yelp reviews, which recommended the Loganberry drink. I'd recommend SKIPPING this, unless you like drinking the sweetest thing you've ever drunk in your life. I can't remember what comparison I made, but it was a sweet one. The fries were pretty good, and the hot dogs were... fine. They have a skin, and I'm not a fan of skin-on dogs, but it appears you can order without.
For dinner, we met M and his presentation partner for The Pearl Street Brewery. We all agreed that the beers were good while the food was... fine.
A fun day all around, though the food was pretty fine.
