On a happier note!

On Friday, Steph and I took the girls to the Children's Museum! This time we went sans stroller. Wow... was that difficult! It probably wouldn't have been so difficult had I not been in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy! HA HA! I know Graycen was really loving me for letting her "go free." I don't think she thought a day like this would ever come that I just let her run wild, so to speak.
Watching her little mind, hands and eyes explore everything was just amazing. She was such a kid while we were there. It really made me realize/see just how big and older she really is. My baby is getting so big!
I think, for Graycen, it was probably a tie between two galleries for which would be her favorite. The World Works Gallery - where she had a blast playing with boats in water, balls in water and LOTS of bubbles in water OR the Earth Works Gallery - where she had a very much enjoyed playing in the streams of water and checking out the fish and turtles in the big tank. Go figure, both had to do with playing in the water. I think my favorite (from watching Graycen discover and explore) was the World Works Gallery. She seemed so much older while in there. Just the way she was playing in the bubbles, trying to make big bubbles herself and observing the other kids, it was just amazing.
OK, enough sappy stuff and on to some, er, lots of pictures.

Bubbles!

It was a lot of fun...but we definitely should have brought strollers. Oh well, it was a learning experience and at least the girls got to play!
