Our "Fun" Day

Yesterday we spent the day cleaning and organizing the house and raking the leaves. The girls helped out readily with the promise of "today is our work day and tomorrow will be our fun day."
Anyone who's traveled along I-30 will recognize this blurry picture as the Ripley's Believe it or Not and Louis Tussaud's Wax Museum. For as long as I can remember Cara has begged to visit. She's into stuff like that. We figured today would be a great day for this one.

It was full of the weird and creepy alike. They even had an exhibit of the life of Christ. That was unexpected... On a side note, it was interesting that they went from birth to teaching at the Temple to the Sermon on the Mount to the Last Supper to the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. Entirely skipped was the Garden of Gethsemane and the Atonement... if you're gonna do it, do it right...

Next it was off to fly kites at the park. We spent a lot of time getting a new Star Wars Millennium Falcon 3-D kite put together only to find at the park it did not want to take off into the sky. Rude! These cheap-o CVS brand kites I had in the closet for an "I'm bored" day flew like nobody's business though.

Glad we could all enjoy a fun day together at home!

Cheap kites make the world go round! I like your idea of lets work today and play tomorrow. I should definitely do something like that with my kiddos. I make them work but currently have no reward system in place.
