NYC, Baby...

Loving Husband, the Tax Deductions and I were in the City That Never Sleeps this weekend (and yes, I know it's Tuesday, give me a break). Officially, we were in for two reasons: One, my dad had tickets to see the Jets with LH on Sunday; two: LH and I went to the annual SFWA reception last night. While the hubby was off male-bonding with my dad, my BIL and I took the kiddies to the Museum of Natural History.

Dude.

You have not seen true happiness until you witness a five-year-old boy staring in awe at an allosaurus skeleton.

And you have not experienced pure hell until you witness a three-year-old boy pitching a fit in the "dinostore" because no, he can't get the $40 dinosaur toy.

Oh, sweetie! Were you in town today? I was a the show and could have given you a backstage tour! There's enough to interest even a dinosaur-deprived boy!

Glad you were here and had fun. I love the Natural History Museum. It's THE BEST.

I sometimes borrow small children from friends to take there.

Jackie, it sounds like you and your little ones had great fun!;o)

Devon, I wish you were here, in Edinburgh, to borrow mine. Why am I not so lucky?

Sounds like you had a BLAST ! I Love the MNH. My favorite part has always been the HUGE Whale that hangs from the ceiling ! Might just have to head down there over the LONG weekend it has been awhile.

The museum was DEFINITELY cool. Looking forward to going back -- and maybe this time, I won't spend a gazillion dollars on food. (Holy Mark Up, Batman...) :-)
