This past Sunday we planned a family fun day. Without Football to watch (yes, we really are die hard fans of Sunday Football), we've found that planning fun activities on Sunday are the way to go. We are already out for church and it's nice to have something to do. Plus, this frees up Saturday for us to hang out at home and/or work on some projects.
On Sunday, the 16th, we headed to Church and Sunday School first and had a great morning at church. From there we headed out to dinner and decided to try out IHOP since it would be easy with the boys. Well, once is enough for us. HA! We were both craving a place called Mega which is near my parents house and hoped this might be a half way decent substitute but it was not . . . . oh well. Next time we will eat somewhere else that is for sure. Then we headed to the Grand Rapids Public Museum to see the Dinosaur Exhibit.
We arrived at the museum and got THE perfect parking spot which is beyond amazing when you consider we had to wait 45 minutes in line to get inside. Geesh! It was worth it though. Here's my confession - I haven't taken the boys to this museum because I find it kinda of, well, boring. I've been many times and figured they wouldn't like it. Boy was I wrong. They loved it and now, I need to take them back where they can just explore the place.
We also rode the carousal. The boys loved it and had huge smiles on their faces. There was no way I could get a photo though. I was just trying not to get sick from going in circles over and over and over . . HA!
I'm looking forward to taking the boys back. I think going on a weekend day during the hot days of summer will be on our bucket list!
