Day Trip

We took the kiddos on a day trip to Chicago last week. It was a very long day, but thankfully the weather was beautiful and the kiddos did great. Here are a few pictures of what we did.

Our first stop was to the museum of Science and Industry. There is so much to see and learn.
We enjoyed seeing a lot of things we had learned about in space last year. Here is astronaut Josh.

Astronaut Olivia

And our Astronaut Nate

They really enjoyed spending time watching a chick hatch from its egg.

Learning about electricity.

Getting ready to watch Born to be Wild at the Omani-Max theater. It was really cool to watch.

Next stop was a stop to the American Girl store. 
What's a trip to Chicago without pizza. We walked over to Gino's Pizza for a very delicious deep dish pizza. It was so thick we could only eat one piece each.
A lot of walking to all the stores for one little boy.

I packed their pj's to put on for the way home. Good thing we did as they all fell asleep on the way home as making memories can make you exhausted.

Sweet Sixteen

Hubby and I celebrated sweet 16 years of marriage Friday. What makes it sweet, grace. The same kind of grace that Jesus gave us. Forgiving one another and realizing that Jesus is the only one that can truly fulfill us and make us complete. With God's help I am looking forward to enjoying the next 16 years with my one true love.
I was surprised with a dozen roses (and a hamper as a joke).
I surprised him with a Broncos t-shirt and tickets to go see a Broncos football game. He was so excited.  I ordered them 5 months ago making it is so hard not to tell him.  Thanks to both of our moms for helping me pull this gift together.
