One of the first things we did this summer was visit the Creation Museum near Cincinnati.
It is a HUGE, beautiful place dedicated to explaining the biblical viewpoint on scientific evidence accepted as fact by today's researchers.
I felt like I learned a lot. I know John and Emily did too.
Grace and Grant just thought it was a cool place to play for the day.
That's OK too.
It made me think about a lot of things I'd never considered before.
In addition to the HUGE, beautiful indoor displays, they also had a HUGE outdoor garden area.
We spent about four hours looking around and no way near saw everything.
Grace and Grant especially loved the petting zoo out by the gardens.
What kid doesn't love a petting zoo.
Oh, true confessions.....
I will once again be nominated for worst parent of the year, because.....
our zoo at home has a petting zoo.
The kids ask what that fenced in place with the animals is each time we pass by it.
I always tell them it is a place for the zoo workers to work with special animals (not a lie).
They never ask if they can go inside...and I never volunteer that little piece of information.
In ten years of going to that zoo, I have NEVER taken my kids into the petting zoo area.
I plan on keeping my record for a bit longer too, so DON'T TELL THEM!
