Visit to the Children's Museum

A few weeks ago I packed up the girls and went over to the Lincoln Children's Museum.  We had a great time there!  Aria slept most of the time and the other two ran around and checked everything, I mean everything out.  A few highlights from our trip.... "Ava, get in the back.... I'm driving.",  "Ava, I am bigger so I need to show you how to climb up here.", "Ava, you sit in this chair while I put on a show."  :)  Ava eventually walked away and did her own thing.  

I had a great mommy moment that day.  Ali wanted to play in the grocery store area.  It is set up just like a little store and it was a popular spot that day.  She filled up her cart and then patiently waited for 20-25 minutes for her turn at the cash register.  There was a little girl who was taking a LONG turn and Ali quietly went up, tapped her shoulder and said, "There are a lot of people waiting... could you finish your turn please."  I just about started crying.  She kept looking up to the front of the line. So cute. Just standing there waiting to pretend to check out.  I loved every minute of it! Praise the Lord.

While Ali was doing this, Ava was picking up every little Lego (that some crazy kids had thrown all over the place) she could find while repeatedly saying, "Let's get ornganized."  (No, I did not spell it wrong, that's how she says it.)  I love raising kids.  What a privilege and a blessing.  I would not choose to do anything else.

Aria was a champ.  Praise the Lord!
