“Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity.”
Our girls were SOOOOOO (and that is SO not enough O’s) excited to go to the Museum of Life and Science that they were bouncing off the walls 24 hours before we actually went! It’s so funny because they’ve never been to a museum really and so they didn’t even know what to expect. I showed them pictures of what they would see there, but it didn’t match the bubbling excitement they had to go. It was kind of pricey to go, but it wound up being worth every penny and then some. It was SUCH a fun place and there was so much to do and see that we couldn’t get it all in before we had to leave. Of course, I would pick the hottest day of spring to go…94 degrees. Kudos to my sweet, good-sport husband who, after working in the heat all day long all week long, hung out in some more heat for his family and, mostly, for his children. Here’s some shots, but I don’t feel like I really captured the museum. I was too preoccupied with all the coolness this museum had to offer!
I think that the insectarium and butterfly conservatory were my favorite part and Anabel’s too (next to the train ride). I actually just picked this butterfly up with my finger! I could have stayed there and camped out. It was so beautiful!
It usually takes a lot for me to be impressed enough with something to tell others about it, but this place was awesome! I would take our children there regularly if we could afford it! I think I was just as enthused as the girls were and Bloke, well he’s a man. He kept his enthusiasm all bundled up inside 😉 But it was there. I know it was.
