Several days ago, Arianne took Benaiah out to the Science and Natural History Museum in Raleigh. It was a gift from her to him for his 8th birthday.
Looks like they had an enjoyable time!
They've got the whole world.... at their backs!
Benaiah really enjoyed the stuffed rodents! Definitely a "boy" thing. He couldn't stop talking about this experience when he came home.
And to pose with a brontosaurus .... it hardly gets better for an 8-year-old boy!
Look! A two-legged bug wearing shorts and sneakers! And I had always learned that insects had 6 legs!
Inside a "tree"....
And what's a museum outing on a hot summer's day without.... ice cream? Not quite as tasty as when enjoying a cone on a bear's back!
Fun times for brother and sister.
Thanks Arianne... Benaiah really enjoyed his time with you, while the older children hiked Grandfather Mountain with Daddy!
And I, well, I cleaned and organized closets. Exciting stuff. Really. All alone. In a quiet house for 5 full hours!
It was almost surreal.
Next up... hopefully some Grandfather Mountain shots.
