AC Gilbert Museum

Today super-hero dad was working on the fence. There have been some bumps in the road and today was no different. He found a drain pipe in his way and so now he has to re-think how he's going to put a retaining wall up before building the fence. In the early afternoon I told him I felt like going somewhere. I just wanted to get in the car and drive.

We decided to drive down to a children's museum that is reciprocal with our local children's museum. Love that we can get in free! We only had an hour before they closed, but the kids had such a good time. Watch the slideshow of all the fun things they did.

On the way home we needed to find some place to stop and eat, so I emailed a friend of mine that used to be my supervisor when I taught at the deaf school. She sent back names of a few good restaurants, but it was decided that we would go to a restaurant that had a 'kids eat free' menu on the weekends. We've been to this restaurant before, so should have been okay. The kids' meals were fine, but mine and super-hero's were the worst we've ever had. I decided to go healthy and have a chicken salad, even though fries were calling my name. I found 5 little chunks of chicken in this huge mound of lettuce and too many soggy green and red peppers. I couldn't believe how bad it was. Then, DH's steak was practically raw. He had asked for well-done and it was bright pink when he cut into it. He sent it back to be cooked more and it came back tough and gritty. I guess you get what you pay for.

Sounds like fun. Was there a slide show that was in there? Because it's not popping up. Also where is this place? I have never heard of it.

I got interrupted before I put the slideshow up. Imagine that!
The Gilbert Museum is off the Salem Parkway exit. It's a fabulous place. We'll have to go when the kids don't have school for a day.
