Yesterday we spent the day in exotic Mesa. Kerry took her kids to the Dinosaur Museum earlier this week and it sounded like so much fun that I talked Gina and her kids into coming with us.
It all started off so fun. Nate loved the dinosaurs and the kids thought everything was so cool. Then there's this room with hanging sea monsters in it, and I tried to get my kids to go in there. The next thing I know, Ellie is crying real tears and Nate is hiding. After that, everything was "scary."
Luckily you can also pan for gold at the museum, so not all was lost. My kids loved that part. The gold was so tiny, but they were all so excited when they found a little piece in the sand.
Instead of dumping the water into the fountain, Nate kept dumping it on himself. Thank goodness we did this part last! Below is soaking wet Nate and Kade and Ellie with their gold. Poor Ellie was standing next to Nate a few too many time while panning for gold.
After the museum, we headed back to Gina's for the kids to play and the guys joined us for dinner and the game. Eight hours later, we decided to head home and put the kids to bed. When we told Ellie it was time to go, she whined "But I haven't even gotten to play that much!"
I love this picture of Sadie and Skyler. He was so cute with her. Even though he's 18 months old and can totally walk, he would get down on the floor to play with Sadie. I said they could get married as long as Sadie didn't have to move to Mesa ;p.
