End of the School Year and a Birthday!

Last week we went to visit our children and grandchildren for a few days. We never need much of an excuse, but our grandson was having a birthday, he was also having an end of year play in his first grade class, and one granddaughter's class created a wax museum where each historical character (4th grade students) told about himself or herself when someone "pushed" their button. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

Amelia Earhart never looked quite so beautiful as this day! Didn't her mom, our daughter-in-law, do a great job of finding an aviator jacket, cap, and goggles---all at a very reasonable price. Our granddaughter was a very authentic looking replication of Amelia Earhart!

Of course, we went to lunch with all four of them which is always fun. Then, we went to the birthday boy's play "Going Buggy." Don't you think he's about the cutest little honey bee you've ever seen?

While there we took them all to see Night in the Museum--Battle of the Smithsonian. It was actually a really cute movie which we enjoyed and we were only interrupted once when our oldest granddaughter got her foot hung in the seat and Pops had to go get it out. Other than that, it was an uneventful evening at the movie and a really fun trip! We'll soon be looking for another good excuse to head that way!
