Museum Outing

Got the chance to have the kids' friends come over so we loaded everyone up and headed down to the Royal Alberta Museum for the morning.

We've been there many times before but it was much more fun to have friends along to zip in and out of exhibits, playing time travellers.  Who knew insects and minerals and microscopes and aboriginal dioramas could be so much fun all over again, when seen through fresh eyes?  

Our friends are coming back tomorrow morning while their mom catches up on some work.  I thought some nice quiet time reading books or doing paper crafts would be a pleasant way to spend the morning but the junior crew is negotiating for going to the Telus World of Science.  

Oh the joys of babysitting without a tv in the house!  Just kidding - actually I had lots of fun too!  You should have seen me wearing my moth headband we crafted in the Field Station through the museum.  It'll make these friends appreciate their nice, normal, non-embarrassing mom more than ever when they go home, I'm thinking!
