A Day in the Life

It was a rainy Sunday so we decided to pack some snacks and head to the Upper West Side to get out of the GD house for some culture.

Here we go

We were totally original in this idea and congratulated ourselves the whole way up there. Until we saw the lobby.

There are four lines but every single person here is on one of them.

Thankfully our line moved quickly and we started off strong.

The animal exhibits were a huge hit.
“Stay cool guys, but I think there’s a polar bear headed my way.”

We were having so much fun, even the science exhibits were fascinating.

C’s reading to us about mitochondria

Gavin’s favorite part of the day:  the craft table

Look ma, I made a jellyfish out of plastic which is extremely harmful to the actual ocean

Chloe’s favorite part of the day was no surprise:

Mama always has snacks

Mom and Dad’s favorite part:  all that excitement = early bedtimes.

    I’m still laughing at the GD cross out. And the plastic jellyfish. And ugh. Lines. With kids. Is there anything worse than knowing you have the next 30 minutes to try and keep your children contained and entertained? I get sweaty palms just thinking about it. This was my favorite post yet (and man, after the foot and mouth terror, I needed the laugh). Keep it up lady.

    Yikes, that lobby looks like the panda exhibit at the Beijing zoo over the weekend. Half an hour of pushing, and all we got was a glimpse of a panda butt. Glad your excursion was more successful!
