Museum with Grandma

Grandma and I took the kids to the museum yesterday afternoon. I'd promised the girls that we could go during spring break (they're always so disappointed whenever Benjamin tells them that I took him to the museum while they were at school) and our spring break is disappearing at an alarming rate!

It didn't help that the first three days of spring break were designated snow make-up days. Nor does it help that our entire life seems to revolve around rehearsals for the musical. I've spent eleven hours either rehearsing or driving to/from rehearsal just in the past three days.

That's like 1/6 of my time!

Maybe that doesn't sound like very much time to be away from the house doing other things but, I assure you, to my nursing baby it feels like basically an eternity. And then, because I've been starving her (ha! this child is so far from starving) she wants to eat and eat and eat when I get home. And then wants to eat and eat and eat all night long, which means that I'm sleepy.

But I powered through the afternoon at the museum anyway (and I think, if I'm not mistaken, that Grandma actually dropped Zoë and I off at home to nap while she took the kids to get pizza for dinner (I'm so tired I can't even remember what I've done certain days)). The kids had a fun time showing Grandma their favourite parts of the museum.

This little boy can't not jump in this creek...

Still, we couldn't stay too long because we had to get home in time to have dinner in time for me to leave for rehearsal. Just a few short weeks until showtime and then we can all take a deep breath.
