Day at the Museum

I know, I know. You miss me. I haven't been posting that often. You know you're slacking when your sister tells you she goes to read your blog and is disappointed because there's nothing new to greet her. The sad thing is, there has been tons of stuff going on and I just haven't had the time to write about it all. I will try to make it up to you....In my next post! (Which by the way will be my 100th!)

Last Saturday my friend Joelle and I took our boys to the Boston Children's museum. The boys are getting to such a fun age. They get excited to see each other and have fun when they play together. The night before we were going, I told Nathan we were going to the museum with Tyler. At dinner daddy asked him where he was going tomorrow, and he yelled, "zeeum"! Then he asked who he was going with and Nate replied, "Tyler, Tyler, Tyler"!! He never ceases to amaze me, this kid.

We have been trying to save money, which means no spending on things that aren't necessities. I was so excited when I found out my work has a membership to the children's museum so we got to go for free! It even admits 6 guests so, if the hubbies weren't enjoying their alone time, they could have come for free too.

I threw Natey's other car seat in the back seat, picked up Joelle and Tyler and we were off to Boston. The boys were so cute riding in the back together. They are used to being back there by themselves so the were chatting and making each other laugh. They entertained themselves the whole 45 minute ride!

The cool part of the membership is the early "members only" admission to the museum, an hour before the public gets in. It was so nice to have almost an hour of time where it wasn't very crowded because by 11am you couldn't even walk without almost stepping on a munchkin.

The boys played and had a great time. I got a workout just chasing Nathan around. I swear he has the shortest attention span of anyone I have ever seen. He was like a pin ball and I was trying to catch him bouncing from one thing to another. They played, had a snack, played some more, we ate lunch and then it was time to head home for nap time.

Apparently they couldn't wait to get home. :o)

Too bad Netey decided that the 40 minute nap on the way home was the all he needed for the day because I was exhausted!


  1. Fun!
    I'm taking Josie in March to our children's museum for their free day. Now I'm super excited!

  2. Glad you had fun! Great pics! LOL @ the last one. I have a lot of those.


  3. We used to love our Children's museum before they closed it down. The kids always had a blast. Love all the pictures. They look like they were having a great time. How nice to get in early too. Love the sleeping one too. Precious!

  4. What a great way to spend a day - friends and fun for the little ones! I just discovered our Children's Museum in Dallas. T was free, but I had to pay $9.00 for my admission. She had such a great time, and I felt guilty leaving after several hours of solid playing, but I was whooped!

  5. I love the pic of the little guys passed out in the car! Too bad he was all rested up by the time you guys got home...mommy needs a nap too!

  6. Don't you just love to take boys to someplace where they get all worn out and sleep!!! I love it! Also, I am jealous that your childrens museum has a whole train table and stuff...Ours is great but nothing like that!!!

    Looks like a great day for Natey and his bud!

  7. Oh they are just toooooo cute! Looks like you had a great time, and its obvious that they enjoyed it. How AWESOME is their mom!! getting to do cool stuff like that at their age!! I would have been at home taking that nap. LOL

    Glad you all had so much fun, and thanks for sharing such a fun moment!

    Love and Prayers,


  8. Looks like you had a great time, and I love the last picture. They were plum tuckered out...

  9. Looks like SUCH fun!! Corban has a little friend like that - he gets excited to play with him and stuff. Love that.

  10. Isn't it fun when they have someone in the back seat with them? Aidan never naps when my friend and I go together somewhere with her daughter. He just stares and stares!

    Great pictures, as usual. : )


What you talkin' bout Willis??
