A Day at the Museum!

Today we took advantage of Jenna having the day off for the MLK holiday and decided to go to the Grand Rapids Public Museum!  

There is the COOLEST dinosaur exhibit there right now with life-sized dinosaurs that move and roar.  Jenna & I have been talking about going for months now, but I have been very hesitant to 1. go on a weekend (too busy with my super-sized stroller!) and 2. go without help.  Thankfully our neighbors have been wanting to go to the exhibit too,  so today worked perfect!  

The exhibit was fantastic and everyone did great.  Diane and her four youngest girls Courtney, Sabrina, Destiny & Lanie joined Jenna, the babies & I at the museum.  We enjoyed a nice couple of hours exploring the sights, sounds, and experiences of the museum and its exhibits.

The babies did GREAT!  I have these backpack-harnesses for them to wear just in case I need to keep physical tabs on more than one little munchkin, but because it was not too busy and there was lots of space to explore (& lots of eager helpers!), they were able to wander around and explore easily.

These dinosaurs were INTIMIDATING, but Hannah and Lauren just wanted to jabber away at them without fear!  The boys were more mesmerized than anything else, and Jenna kept on asking me (with a slight tinge of concern) if they were indeed fake.  Yes kiddo, but they even gave mommy a little jolt!  

I think Hannah & Jenna look so much alike!
Believe it or not, the only person who mentioned all the kiddos was the lady collecting tickets for the carousel ride.  She asked, "Is this some kind of a daycare?", to which I laughed and said, "No, just 2 moms and our kids!"

I love how the quads are now old enough to really enjoy stuff like this.  It was a delight and we were so glad to do something fun of the house!

What exciting things have you done lately?
