This week is spring break for Lulu and not Norah. You would think that Challenger would try to take the public school's spring break schedule into consideration when they plan theirs, but they don't. So next week Norah will be on break which leads us to one of those Staycation things I've been hearing about. Not that we vacation all that frequently, but I do my best.
And as fun as it has been to teach Lulu how to clean toilets and as fun as it has been to turn on The Cars and watch the children jump couch to couch, we decided to head south.
As we approached BYU and Lulu noticed the "Y" hanging from the stadium, I heard her say:Jimmer. To which I replied mentally: What the...? Who teaches you this popular culture stuff? Not me. Lulu is also the one who taught me the words to "Womanizer" when I was unfamiliar with the song not too long ago.
I informed the children we were meeting grandpa (grandpa is the big man on campus) and visiting an extra exciting museum.
Upon entering the Bean museum, we barely escaped a stampede of field trippers trying to identify a wolverine. We made our way through the myriad of herbivores whose bodies are missing. The grizzly bear isn't bodiless if you know what I mean.
The uniqueness of Shasta the liger, was lost on Abram and Lulu, too bad she was the best part. They seemed to be more interested in the tiny two-headed snake displayed at the gift shop cash register.
Someone, who previously has been the light of my life, threw a temper tantrum in the museum, in the library!, and in the Marriott center parking lot.
This is her guilty look in grandpa's office.
And if it looks as though I am choking her here, I am.
Stay tuned for more of our 2 week staycation and see who survives.
