Day at the Museum

Today, I spent the day with my in-laws. They have rented a space not to far from their house to pull the travel trailer and boat to for a mini-vacation. Basically - gas prices and other factors have forced us all to get creative with our summer plans.

They typically have taken Taylor on some sort of a vacation ever since she was born, and this year we all get to join in on the fun - as they brought her to the Natural Science Museum here in town today, and I met them there for a fun day of family and learning. We started with a 3-D Imax movie about dinosaurs, then moved to the exhibits, and finally ended our day with a movie/presentation at the planetarium.

We ended the day by picking John up from work, and heading to Benihana's for dinner. I conquered one of my biggest food demons tonight, and I WON! I went, I ordered my own meal, and I didn't make myself sick... I brought a lot home, but I am extremely happy with how things went.

Here are some pictures of the day:

A new camera warrants taking the first pictures of the puppies... this is Maggie.

And here is one of Missy...

A picture from dinner, and again - did I tell you that I came, I saw, I ate, and I conquered!


  1. I can't wait to be able to go out for sushi again! Your day looks like it was wonderful!

    Thanks for all your comments on the Aaron situation...it continues to get insane; I just found another myspace account for him and I'm not sure now if he set it up or if "uncle Cody" did.

  2. Sounds like a perfectly lovely day!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
