Don't we look happy? Yep, that's cuz we hadn't even entered the museum yet. We wouldn't look so good if we'd taken a picture on the way out!
See, yes -- it's the day where we get out of the house so mom and dad can get ready for Thanksgiving! But it's also the day where we go to the Children's museum and spend more money on admission, juice boxes and stupid light shows than the cost of our entire Thanksgiving meal and impending Christmas cards (postage included) combined! The day where we have to force at least two people to go (one of them always being Brian) and where we get out of the house at least two hours behind... schedule (one of them always being because of Brian).
It's the day that John, he being the only kid without ADD, reminds us, halfway to Indy, that we forgot something important and the day that Will ends up carrying all the coats and calming everyone down. It's the day that we lose Michael 30 times and the day that everyone, at some point or another, deliberately gets lost. The day that Caitie takes on too much and has a million "Oh-my-Lord, I'm-turning-into-my-mother
It's the day that the younger girls decide to have alternating meltdowns and the one that Tommy finds hilarious to antagonize each each person at their breaking point. It's the day that we vow to never take on again and the day that, halfway back to Lafayette, we can't help but start laughing at how terrible it was.
Yes, by the time we get home, it's the day that we want to forget but can't wait to remember. :)
Who's ready for more!?
