"The Awesome Super Great Big Fun Day" or "I am the best aunt EVER"

I documented most of the day and so will be doing another entry showing all of the Big Fun activities but in honor of TWOP here's the brief recap:

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...


ps. For Grandma Atwood wurtmann... the kids LOVED their pajamas.

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

  • Checking in

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

  • "10 Things" or "Q&A"

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
