School is in!!!! The city is ours!!!!

I'm getting back into my parenting groove and it definitely helps that kids are back in school. Once again, we have the city to ourselves!!!









 We have had a membership to the Museum of Natural Science for a couple of years now, but for some reason have never been to the planetarium. We always choose 3D Imax instead.


 From now on, I will be choosing the planetarium! The show is shorter (20 minutes) which makes it much easier with a baby. Plus, most of the programs are space related and Eaden loves space. She also loves tornadoes which I found out at the planetarium...good to know.


 Taven walked around the dinosaur museum making dinosaur noises, pretending he was a mommy T-Rex looking for her baby.




 Eaden somewhat understands evolution, but the little ones always think they are going to turn into apes...



 We had to run through the Egypt exhibit again. Unfortunately, it is not Taven's favorite.

 And put them in their own little treehouse.

I've been trying to give Taven activities to do to keep his mind off the eczema.



 My pictures are out of order and I don't feel like fixing them. Here is Mirek on a nature walk.



 Eaden tried to make a party hat but decided it was a unicorn horn instead.


 Pipevine Swallowtail.


 He just wants to get in the water!


 Taven could fish like this all day.


 Gulf Fritillary.




 I hid all of the markers. But only after he did this about 20 times.


 Trying to drink the water.




 A deadly childhood weapon.



 Eaden had her first meet. Unfortunately, they didn't get to wear their new fancy leotards. They were all sent back for alterations.


 She did not score high but it doesn't phase her. What could be better than gymnastics with friends!?


 Ribs and bacon.


 Puzzles.


 A treehouse with a rainbow to slide on!


 A pirate boat.


 Dug out this old birthday gift from a friend. They have to do crafts on the kitchen counter so Mirek will not mess everything up.
