Inner Space

°°°°° I was having technical difficulties last week when I wrote this post and discovered it hiding in drafts today°°°°°

Brittany and Jenn Jr joined us on another adventure.  We traveled down to visit with my grandma yesterday morning and after lunch we explored the Inner Space Caverns.
It was a pretty neat tour, no stairs this time, and over a mile in walking.  We saw a few bats, which is always cool in a cave, and we paid the extra $2 to "explore" a section with flashlights: this is where Brittany and Ben had the MOST fun!  Until she hit her head, as Ben describes it her head went "BOOOOOONNNNNNNG".  A lot of the stones if we tapped them hard enough made a musical 'bong' sound.
I somehow managed to pawn the driving duties on Jenn Jr, and quickly found out that the threat "girls don't make me..(insert whatever threat to stop kids from arguing).." doesn't work from the backseat.
I had made a chocolate chip cookie-bar and the girls devoured it on the trip, so once arriving I quickly made them another while we waited for Matt and Coby to arrive.  Pete was generous and took us all out for sushi!  It was a LONG, but fantastic day spent with my family.

on a side note a few funnies from the boys:
Cloudy and I were talking about how much he loves his Raffi (blanket), and he told me he never wants to take THIS one in the store, because stores EAT raffis.

Ben is at the age I guess, every time we are out I hear at least once "wow, look at those wheels"

Cloudy: "I want to be a Penguin when I grow up"
