We had a hiccup in our first stay-cation day plans.
David took off the day so we could take the kids to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. We've heard nothing but FANTASTIC things about this fairly new museum in Dallas, so we were excited to add it to our stay-cation plans.
At the entrance, we found some friendly frogs to play with...
...a (normally) very active boy sitting down and being quiet.
Stan had announced he wasn't feeling good. He has a tendency to get car sickness, and we thought that this was the case.
We VERY slowly made our way into the museum and paid the surcharge to see the dinosaur exhibit.
And VERY slowly made our way to the dino-dig for kids.
And about 3 minutes into it, he got sick.
Thank the Lord Almighty, I was standing next to a trash can...and with mommy instincts kicking in...he made the trash can.
(David was able to get a few more shots in just before Stan was sick.)
David was showing these pics to me after we got home.
He told me that while taking the photos of the girls, Miss Clementine announced, "I want to CHEESE Daddy. Cheese!" (See. Bottom right photo)
Poor Stan. By the time we got home, he had a fever on top of it. (Not car sickness.)
The hidden blessing?
Last night, while pricing the day in advance, I noticed that with a family of 7, it would actually be CHEAPER to get a one year membership! So we bought the membership, and we can go back all year long! (We didn't lose out on anything, except for poor Stan being sick.)
(Our membership cost $110. A day pass for each of us would have come to $160.00)
On top of that, they gave us a refund on the Dinosaur exhibit surcharge since we were in there for such a brief amount of time due to illness.
So we look forward to going back. Many more times!
Have a great weekend and a blessed Sunday!
P.S. Say a prayer that whatever bug is in our house, it passes me. I am a confirmation sponsor for a young lady this Sunday.
