with that said-and with all our days being filled with rain lately- we ventured to the science museum.
it can be quite wild keeping up with 3 explorers. there is alot to see and a huge jungle gym that spits you out on multiple floors. so, yes, i lost my kids several times but found them seconds before total meltdowns could occur.
we loved discussing the body parts and the solar system. we loved climbing. i love watching them soak it all in and refreshing myself on things forgotten since i have acquired mommy brain.
we had a blast and can't wait to go back soon and especially do the planetarium part.
this is one of the things i remember from my childhood days at the science museum. the static ball. come on, i know you remember touching it while on your field trip!

this was my parents very first house.
this was the house my parents brought me home to days after i was born.
this picture is 30 yrs later...
i look at this picture and can only imagine how it was back then. you see, my dad was meticulous about the yard. in fact, he won yard of the month for his hard work. pictures my mom have of the place back in the day show a green striped yard, flowers galore, and well - a happy little family.
i can just imagine myself toddling in the yard with my dog jake. i can just imagine...
sometimes i think it would be so wonderful to have memory recall of your really early years.
thanks goodness my mom (like me) took lots of pictures to document life and memories.
i feel so blessed to come where i come from.

we had gone with some buddies to visit some more buddies that just had beautiful baby Cate and well... we couldn't resist.
honestly, the draw was the famous boot store Joey wanted to visit. so, we unloaded and embarked on a boot adventure. Joey scored with 3 cool pair. Briley posed for hours. all 3 kiddos tried on multiple boots. and cool "uncle" Jeff came thru with cool cowboy hats! it was crazy fun. and no-we didn't hit the honky tonks, but the kids glanced in as many places they could to get a view of where the loud music was coming from.
"uncle" jeff and the cowboy hats!
