when we got to the museum, we parked in a lot at a park near the museum. i thought we'd have to walk all the way around to the main entrance. however, there was a science center entrance pretty close to our parking spot. : ) i was THRILLED! i love space stuff (even tho the thought of space kinda gives me the willies. it's hard to explain. *laugh*)!!!
sadly, the attitudes came back in full force after we'd been in the museum for awhile. after the ice cream, tho. :) i had butter pecan, because it was dad's favorite & i forget how much i like it til it's on a menu. i shared it w/ leyton. he's just like me & thinks the cone is the bestest part! : )
there were trains, oh TRAINS galore, making leyton happy! he would have stayed forever in that one area if we'd let him. well, if anthony would have let him... i think next time we might have to split up - if mom goes a next time! *laugh*
along w/ the trains, there was an AWESOME display of chicago, seattle, etc. many nifty displays - planes & a hamster wheel, water works, construction - even some JD stuff!!
baby chicks!!! i didn't get a shot of the eggs in the hatchery, tho.
can you feel the excitement?! : )
after the museum, on our way to dinner, we got to look at the pretty beach. i love lake michigan! lots of great photo ops of the city, too. and leyton decided he wanted to mug for the camera. CUTENESS knows no bounds! : )
it was nice, even w/ all the not-niceness. the bottom line is that i got to spend oodles of time w/ anthony, leyton, and mom. THAT is the important thing, and that is what i love.
