I Lied

We had another Spring Break outing besides our adventure at Redbud Valley.

I didn't mean to lie. It was an accident (as Luke says).

On Friday, we took a couple friends and went to the new, hands-on, children's museum in town, called Kaleidoscope.The kids had a good amount of fun. It is really nice to have a place like this here in town... when the girls were little, we traveled all the way to Enid to Leonardo's. And of course, back then, it was all new and wonderful and exciting (even for me). So, 5 years later, our trip to Kaleidoscope was fun, but kind of muted fun for our grown up little 8 and 10 year olds. It did provide for many cute photo ops, and for me, that's what it's about anyway, getting the pic! Forget the fun, give me the pic. Just kidding of course, but I will admit there are times that I have to back off the photo thing, stop brainstorming on blog post titles, and just enjoy myself! Their very favorite part? The rock climbing wall. Luckily for me, free rock climbing started at 5:00, so they climbed over and over for the last 45 minutes of our time there. A pretty good deal considering I paid two dollars apiece for one climb earlier in the day. So all in all, it was a fun time, but I have to admit another thing: I was a little bit jealous when I read Amanda's blog post about her trip to the Houston Children's Museum, WOW.

Hmmmm...am thinking sometimes I wouldn't mind having those bars and that black and white jumpsuit in my house. For the children of course; I require a padded room and a white jumpsuit.

Um, where can I get me some of those giant Hershey's syrup bottles...with the syrup included? And those giant ice cream cones? To die for!

This sounds like a fun trip!

(I'm a friend of Baloney's and saw your blog on her site.)
