You're relaxed and feelin' good....
Next thing that you know
Octopus in the neighborhood!?!"
Sounds about right.
Trev was awake at eight o'clock this morning... so that he might have extra time to play his game.
"Mom... I'm pretty sure that Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis is so expensive ($150+!!) because it's the greatest game in the Universe."
There were so many Must Remember delectables today that came from my babes... but of course I cannot recall them. sigh.
Madd woke up to Magic School Bus again, and soon we were doing laundry
and polishing our toes a gorgeous coral color..
and she was packing up lunch for our day Out. (She wanted to be in charge of lunch and snacks today.)
First stop was the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. There were a few things we liked...
and my very favorite...
"Well, it wasn't like the book," said Trev.
"I know," said I. "I was expecting it to be a lot cooler."
"I'm only a little disappointed - not much."
As I've mentioned, I've been wanting to visit The Cathedral of the Madeleine. Today I had it on my mind.
Trevelyn was pretty against going, but I was pretty insistent (reminded him that I enjoy things, too) and he graciously alotted me a very small sliver of time.
I took it!
We spotted grotesques hanging off of the building, that was pretty cool for us-- we're fascinated by grotesques and gargoyles.
The cathedral was magnificent, just as we thought it would be. (We looked at it a few days ago, and got to see the panoramic view.)
Some surprises - I was totally enthralled by the confessional - [grin] it's always cool to see something you've only read about in books.
Maddie was interested in the pews and the hymnals - I got to explain to her how it works. : )
It's true. We're heathens.
And we did some admiring on our short walk through this old part of our city.
The First Presbyterian Church
We had already decided that we would go to the children's museum since we were downtown.
So we built
and made earthquakes
and made stop animation
and created paper contraptions as best we could to see how they'd fly.
We had thought that we would end our day at a park,
but alas! it had turned cold and windy.
So we came home...
To Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis
and Magic School Bus.
A very fine day.
An' all is well.
