Family Fun Day

This morning we woke up with our typical Sunday morning routine...cuddles in bed, homemade breakfast, and getting ready for church. On the way to church Elijah announced that he wanted to go see the animals at the Science Center today. So we quickly made the impromptu decision to head The Natural Science Center after church.

In typical Griffin fashion, he fell asleep on the way home from church. I quickly learned the rule, "never wake a sleeping baby" when Elijah was small and this was going to be no exception. Brian and I decided we would take turns coming inside to change clothes so that Griffin could finish his nap in the car. We had high hopes that he would be well rested and happy while we are at the science center. Our plan was successful! Griffin slept through the wardrobe changes at home and was a happy camper for the rest of the day! Mommy and Daddy success!

Upon arrival to The Natural Science Center we decided to begin our adventure with a picnic lunch. This lead to a very exciting activity of feeding the geese!  This was Elijah's favorite part of the day! 

After our exciting lunch, we headed out to the Animal Discovery Zoo. Elijah's favorite moment while touring the animal exhibits was definitely hearing the tiger ROAR!! It scared me to death but he thought it was hilarious! 

Our next stop was inside to the SciQuarium! My favorite stop is the Penguins! I am in love with these adorable creatures! Griffin loved sitting in front of each aquarium and watching the fish swim by and trying to grab them!

We had such a fun family day! I so I wish I could freeze time and live forever in moments like these! 

If you live near Greensboro, NC you should definitely check out The Natural Science Center for a great family day out!
