Sunday I was finally feeling up to getting out of the house (with the exception of Saturday and two soccer games, I had pretty much been in bed or just hanging around the house since Wednesday, the day of my surgery). So, first we went to church. Now, you all know hell must have frozen over for the Moore/Gordon family to show their faces at church! But we were there just the same. Jeff said it was "opening day of church season" and who would miss opening day? The kids went to Sunday school while Jeff and I attended the service (and said a few extra prayers for Hayley who put on quite a show the night before....something about "you can't make me go"). After church, we took our friend Natalie and headed to the Pacific Science Center. We have a membership and the kids love this place. It's basically the same as it's been for years, but new shows and exhibits travel through. This time, we went to see "Lucy" the oldest known ancestoral skeleton related to humans. The exhibit was great (an audio tour, so we all got to carry around these cool wands/phone things that told the story as we went along), and seeing the actual bones of a 3 million year old skeleton was amazing! Also, the recreation of what Lucy would look like really surprised the kids. Pretty much like a chimpanzee walking upright and the size of a seven-year-old girl. Before the Lucy exhibit, we saw "Mystery of the Nile" - an IMAX film about the first group of adventurers to travel the Nile from source to sea. Jeff and Arlie had never been to an IMAX film so that was cool. And it was a good show (a real nail-biter at points when the rafts flipped over and the crocodiles slithered in to try and make a snack out of the crew). Later, the kids went to the planetarium to see a show about the origins of Halloween. I stayed behind on this one (planetariums make me dizzy) and Jeff ran down the street to a store to get some snacks because everyone was starving. We headed home munching on Goldfish crackers and Capri Suns. All in all, a fun family day. Something we don't get around here too often. Enjoy the photos!
