The Holy Poops!

Did that title get your attention??

I have been promising for a while now to tell you a funny kid story, and I finally have a few minutes to sit down and tell you about it.

A couple of weeks ago, the kids had their spring break. We don't usually plan a big trip over spring break - but we did promise them we would do at least one FUN thing. We decided to take them to the Children's Museum. My husband and I love that place. In fact, we love it so much - we even went there on our honeymoon! Yes. We ARE a couple of big kids.

Here is a picture of us at the Children's Museum almost 7 years ago!



We love this picture, because we met during a local theatre production - we thought this picture was quite fitting.


Anyway . . . back to the funny kid story . . .


The children were VERY excited about going to the museum.


The museum is really cool because it is created FOR children, so they are ALLOWED to touch and interact with almost everything in the museum.

My favorite section when I was in school was the science & discovery section because there were a whole bunch of different cool activities to try. It has changed a lot since I was younger, but it is still pretty neat.

There was a "Health House" where kids could learn about ways to eat healthy and get exercise. There were several activities including jump ropes and the like. When we got to this section, my youngest daughter said, "Mommy! Can I try the holy poops?"

"What?!"

"I want to try the holy poops! See?!"

"OHHHHH! The HULA HOOPS!"

I thought I was going to hurt myself from laughing.

And just for more smiles on this BEAUTIFUL Spring Friday - a few more pictures of my monkeys.




Have a GREAT weekend!

You have a great family. Isn't it funny that they say what they hear, the way they hear it?

That's hilarious! Usually, wheen you are a parent, the poops you have to deal with seem pretty unholy ... like the time I was changing Arya's diaper and she projectiled onto the wall. Holy poops look like a lot more fun!
