A Scientific Morning

Kurt has been able to work from home quite a bit in the last few months. It's been AWESOME to have him around so much. On on of these days, Madi and I took a Madi-Mommy date to the Science Museum and Kurt worked at home while Max slept. I'll tell you what- if you want a good time, call Madi. This kid is a blast! She's really just a hoot to hang around and you will never be bored, I promise you that.

For once, she didn't have to stick close by the stroller. We didn't have a stroller! She got to run anywhere she wanted and pick wherever she wanted to go. This included about six escalator rides, the reptile and amphibian exhibit, the children's room (of course), and anything that happened to catch her attention along the way. And we talked the entire time....well, at least one of us did. :)

It was a really fun morning.

The following is a series of pictures depicting how difficult it is to catch this creature on film. She will NOT look at the camera for pictures! I don't know if she does it on purpose or not, but it can be quite frustrating. Ask anyone who has tried to take pictures of her, including the recent professional we just paid to do so.
"Madi, look at Mommy!"

"Madi, look at the camera!"

"Madi, say cheese!"

"No, smile and say cheese. Look over here at Mommy."

Shadow room

Gotcha! Finally a picture of her looking at the camera!

Between the time my finger hit the button and the camera taking the shot, she crawled out from underneath the turtle shell and took off.

It's so much fun to spend time one on one time with our kids.

Ben is sitting on my lap chanting, "my friend Madi, my friend Madi, my friend Madi..." He recognized her right away.

I love it! It seems that you still caught the true essence of Madi for the rest of us. So fun!
