Our engineer, Jared, enjoyed this wall. He was trying to make it work!
Hey, who's on the big screen TV?!?! ;)
Oh no! ;D
The museum also houses a real Arizona territorial jail. These were the only brave souls that would go into a cell. Suzan, Anna and Bethany refused. And I couldn't just because I was the picture taker ;)
I guess the kids really liked this huge crystal :)
Can you guess why I had to take this picture? Brielle said "mom! take my picture! it's PURPLE!" ;D
They had a little kids' corner with some fun activities. My kids can't leave coloring alone! ;)
Gotta take a picture with T-Rex!
Then, outside, the museum had a little place to pan for gold. Er, fools gold (pyrite) that is ;)
I love how Brielle is trying to pour in the entire contents of the pan, the gold AND the sand, into her baggy ;)
Suzan and Jared were the most serious about this panning business. It looks like she's trying to count her loot! ;D
Suzan - "ooo! i see MORE gold!!!!!" ;)
Jared looking all serious too! And so is Brielle!
And last picture of today...there's nothing like water balloons after dinner!
This is our life: rejoicing in 13 years of marriage...raising a sweet, active and very smart 9 year old boy...carrying, delivering (at 32w3d) and now raising 5 year old quadruplet girls (yes, that's FOUR girls - poor dad and brother ;) )...and ultimately living a life centered and obedient to Christ...Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' - Matthew 37-39
