For my nephew's birthday I promised him a Big Fun day...and today was the day. I drove south to pick up my nephew. We got some gas and I reset the odometer and we're off. I drove back north, made a pit stop at McDonalds, got Sam some french fries (he can have those) stopped at Grandma & Grandpa Atwoods where we had a bit of lunch, picked up some pajamas she had made for Olivia and Henry and said hello to Grandpa who was setting up cabinets in the cottage.
Off to the planetarium where we watched a show on Black Holes (very cool,) looked at meteors and moonrocks and bought a geode.
Then we went to Color Me Mine where Sam painted a plate (he opted to paint his plate as a cross section of the earth. (Pretty neat idea. I thought he might have done a whale.) I painted a mug. We went to the grocery store where we got cheese & onion buns, peanuts, bottled water, split a Hershey Almond bar and headed back home.
162 miles. I am big fun tired. Sam is Big Fun happy. Olivia is already telling me things SHE wants to do for her Big Fun day. Oh boy...
I AM THE BEST AUNT EVAAAH.
ps. For Grandma Atwood wurtmann... the kids LOVED their pajamas.
