We came home from our New Year's Eve engagement at 9:00 p.m. so that everyone would be able to get up in the morning. We headed out at 8:00 a.m. and took this picture in the museum entrance.
|More and more pictures without Moriah and Alyssa...|
Once I made it to the desk, I was crying and telling them his description. The kind lady told me it was ok, it happens everyday, but I don't cope well with the vision in my head of some scary guy kidnapping any of my children. I ran off to continue my search as she made the announcement of a missing blond boy in a blue track suit. Once I rounded the elephant again, Ben was in the door announcing that he had found him. A lady saw him crying and asked if he was lost and took him to a security guard. I may not enjoy all the taxes we pay, but I do appreciate places with excellent security!
When I ran back to the bench, there were my four little girls lined up and hadn't moved! To relieve the trauma, we headed right in to "under the ocean"; Elijah was long past his fear and engrossed in everything he saw.
I would only take one quick picture of the kids in front of "the cool stuff" so if someone didn't smile or closed their eyes, oh well, on the blog it goes -
It just seems to be the same teen boy that can't keep his eyes open at picture time -

The good news is that they moved two dinosaur skeletons to the other floor of the museum and one was a T Rex - Elijah was happy.
We saw lots of fun stuff and Selah and Bella held various bugs - Elijah told the lady, "no thank you, I don't hold bugs."
All in all, it was a successful day in spite of the rough beginning.
