Toadally Awesome

Today was Toadally Frog day. The Utah Museum of Natural History at the U of U had an exhibit of rare live frogs. On a gray and dreary Grandma Tuesday we decided to travel by train to the big SLC to take a look. Jodi, Little Man and the Princess joined me and the little Erises.

We spent an hour and a half at the museum where the kids saw orange frogs, yellow frogs, tiny frogs and large frogs. In other parts of the museum they looked at dinosaur bones, spiders, displays of native Utah animals and rocks. We all had a good time.

Eris met us for picnic lunch at the large park in front of the museum and the kids had fun running around for a little while. The Princess is accustomed to a harness but Little Man had a tougher time at first. Little Ms. did pretty good keeping them reigned in. In our family we are firm believers in harnesses.

Another ride on the trains and we were all home, ready for naps and to recuperate from the excitement of the day.

One last thing. Today I experienced what was probably the most frightening 10 minutes of my life. I won't go into detail but I will just say that I'm glad that I know how to run fast, probably faster than I ever will run again in my life. Also, you should all give a great big shout-out to Mr. Eris, Jr. This eleven year old young man kept his cool and did exactly what he needed to do in an emergency to protect three little girls. And Jodi, thanks for being there with me!!
