A Day at the Museum

One of the best things about being a parent is seeing the world through the eyes of your children.  Since Joey was very young, Ron and I have always found a simple joy in bringing him to new and exciting places.  He loves animals, play-equipment, and nature so when we discovered the Museum of Life and Science in Durham it was a little like hitting the jackpot.  They've got it all.

Today was our second visit to the museum.  We became members last time we were there, and that gave us the privilege of bringing along some friends -my sister and her three boys.  All of the kids had a great time, and I did too.  Even the babies watched in wonder as the butterflies roamed freely around their stroller, the cow moo-d in their faces, and Tyler, Matthew, Jack, and Joey ran from one thing to the next.  Here are some pictures of our day:

This is the only way to get a picture of my three kids together.  The backs of their heads.  Aren't they adorable?

Fascinated Jack.

The cheapest souvenier:  a penny smooshing machine with a dinosaur imprint.

Tyler might just be a photographer some day:

Blue-eyed beauty:

A mirror.

Refusing to look at me.  Yes, she always sits that way.  Looks comfy, huh?

It's no wonder my children are gorgeous.  Look at this guy:

A goat.  A really big goat.

Trying to be a "real" photographer.

Tyler had a hitch-hiking butterfly on his back the whole time in the butterfly house!

Matthew wore his lab coat, since we were going to a "science museum."

Another attempt at "real" photography:
