Lorelei in her new mommy-and-me matching apron with Grandma and Grandpa.
Sunday: We went to our church, Heartland, in the morning. Then we saw the Plaza, ate at Fritz's Railroad Restaurant in Crown Center, and visited Union Station. Lorelei loved the Science Museum, and we all enjoyed seeing the Chronicles of Narnia exhibit. The kids fell asleep in the planetarium, and when Mark and I decided to linger, we didn't know they'd turn out the lights on us. Pitch blackness, a sudden panic, and a loud thud. When Mark tumbled blindly over the banister dividing the exit, naptime was over!
King and Queen of Narnia. Lorelei and Tyler in a helicopter at the Science Center. Monday: We spent this morning at the gym and pool, and even tempted a few waterslides. After lunch, we explored the Legends outdoor mall and dined at Lorelei's favorite restaurant, T-Rex. We also finished our dining room wall, topped off by wall letters--Connelly Family--I got for free (in exchange for a decorating idea). Good trade off, I think. :-)
