|Kris was in heaven! In fact that is exactly what he told me..."I AM IN HEAVEN!"|
Monday came and a trip was planned. We gathered everyone up into cars and off we went into the city. Paul, Nancy, Meghan, Kathleen and Sara in one car and Sean, Michele, myself and our three boys in another. The destination…American Museum of Natural History….the same museum that the movie “A Night at the Museum” is based on. A wonderful museum full of riches and wonders of the world. Honestly the museum is HUGE!!! FIVE levels with numerous rooms full of everything you can imagine. We were able to go and take part in a few extra exhibits all FREE! Michele has a friend that is the head of security and fraud. In other words this man makes sure that everything that the museum exhibits are REAL artifacts and not fakes. Anyway he gave us 11 free tickets. Saved us a TON of money. What a blessing that was to our family.
The best part is that our children were able to experience the museum with their cousins and aunts and uncle. Naturally Kris LOVED the dinosaurs. We also got to go to the Butterfly Observatory, the Planetarium, and Nature’s Lights of Wonder which was an exhibit of fire flies and live glow worms and other things that naturally glow in the wild. It was pretty neat but very crowded so you really couldn’t enjoy it much.
