When we told the children we were planning on visiting the museum after lunch (as we were in town anyway for Clip n Climb) the most excited person was Hannah. And the reason? She wanted to go in the tunnel again. :-) So as soon as we arrived she made sure she got some time going into the dark cave and coming out through the tunnel. Hezekiah was not at all worried about the dark and neither was Asher, who happily walked in without a care. Ruth noticed the spots they put on the ceiling this time - making it look like a night sky. It is amazing how quickly your eyes adjust though and then there is a nice display to enjoy while in the cave.
Hezekiah loved opening this door and watching how the bones moved - copying his movement. It was quite hard though - so he used two hands. :-)
Then the amazing nose.
Then Ruth (right). She beat Rachel's first time - so the competition was on. :-)
Rachel ended up with the fastest time at .96 seconds - just beating Brendon's .97. They did have cushions to run into on the opposite wall - but they were still rather close so there was no way Brendon was not slowing down before the end.
We had a lovely afternoon and then topped it all off by having fish and chips at that lovely shop we discovered on our adventures on Tuesday. We even had their number so ordered the food and it was ready when we arrived. It was a day filled with making so many wonderful memories.
PS: On writing this post almost 2 weeks later Hannah is still praying and thanking God for the lovely day (and thanking him for each detail including the fish and chips). :-)
