Unknown to us, the Museum was having its annual "HERO" Day, and the entire place was so packed with chidlren and people that we had to park a few miles from the buildings and take a shuttle in! (They enjoyed that too! LOL)
When we got inside, there were 'hero' figures all over the place, mostly from Star Wars. Every boy sported a light saber, no naturally, it was a trip to the gift shop for one of those (Emily got a diary with secret ink -- I think she's going to take after her Nonna and write! LOL) ... then off we went to visit figure by figure, butterflies, animals, space crafts, play with the other children in the fort, make music, eat lunch, and more. They had a blast!
Shopped a bit for some more school clothes for them; dashed home for dinner and then got them to Mike's finance's parents for the night.
When I finally got to chat with Mike-the event went exceptionally well with most chicken plates sold, funds raised, a successful motorcycle ride (the rain held off for him - thank heavens), and he was dragging himself to the dance for the final fund-raising portion of the day. He sounded tired, as we all were! but grateful that the event went off well!
Whew -- some day!
