Happy Tuesday

Today we woke up slowly and lazed around a bit. We took our time eating breakfast and getting dressed. At about 11:00, I could see the girls were restless. They really wanted to go somewhere. I was up for a little adventure, but where to go? I had a few ideas, but I was having trouble making a decision-beach, Irvine park pony rides, zoo....

So I just packed up our lunches, and we hit the road. They kept asking where we were going, and I just told them it was a surprise. In reality, I really wasn't totally sure myself.

We ended up at the Discovery Science Museum. And we even got in half price! I've never been there before and had no idea what to expect. I wasn't sure if they would be too young to appreciate it, but we all really loved it. The exhibits are so interactive and interesting.




Their favorite was this chair on a pulley system. They sat in the chair and pulled a rope to raise themself up about 15 feet in the air. They felt so strong and brave. I think they did it five times.

Happy Tuesday, Friends. What were you up to today?

How fun! My little one would have loved that as well. We were lazy this morning as well and then went over to a friend's house to swim and have lunch. Now we're back home trying to decide whether or not to go to Target and get a pedicure or just stay home and veg... I know what I want!
