On Monday Eden didn't have school and I didn't have Chloe so I thought it would be the perfect day to go explore the new Children's museum at the Gateway. We had picnic lunch at the fountain before we headed to the museum and all the kids loved that. Tayleigh and Seth really enjoyed watching but Eden was brave enough to venture into the fountain itself. Sadly, just as I pulled out the camera a voice came over the loudspeakers announcing that everyone needed to get out of the fountain for the water/music show. So, no pictures of that. We headed to the museum and I knew how expensive it was (for those of you not familiar with my money spending preferences I am one of the cheapest women alive) and I balked when they told me that it would be an extra 3.50 a person to see the Sesame Street exhibit. The only reason we did it--I had giftcard to the Gateway and they took it. Did you know that it also costs a dollar to validate your parking there ?
Anyway, the kids loved the museum.The girls loved grocery shopping. You could tell they felt very grown up taking their baskets of food through the checkout line.
Seth was terrified of this horse until I started smacking it as hard as I could to show him that it wasn't real. I don't think he is going to be an animal lover at the rate he is going: first dogs, now fake horses, I don't know what I'm going to do with that kid!
It was a great day, topped off by an ice cream treat. As we were walking away from the museum Tayleigh started complaining that her legs were too tired to walk anymore. I asked her if her legs were to tired to get a treat. She was totally good after that!
