I did get a picture.

For her "party," which consisted of having two neighborhood girls over, we made cake pops. My MIL gave me a how-to book about cake pops, and my girls love it. Jenny wanted cake pop owls, and so we made cake pop owls. We're not very good cake pop makers, but the girls had fun. Some of the owls seem a bit distorted, but they sure tasted good.
|Funky owls. Delicious owls.|

We did not have time to see everything at the science museum, but I bought a membership so we can go back.
We also went to the zoo. The rides at the zoo are free. FREE!
|"Mary! Look at Katie (the photographer)"|
|"I can't believe you're making me ride with the little kids."|
|Nothing to see here.|
|Somebody barely made the height cut off|
|As in: was just barely SHORT enough to go on|
|The last hurrah of childhood|
|One of George's rides|
|She's getting so big|
|This was as exciting as this ride got|
|hanging with the bats|
|trying not to fall...|
|yes. victorious conquering of the wild log flume.|
|Did I mention we were at the zoo and not an amusement park?|
|George's other ride. I had to beg someone to take my picture.|
Actually, I was a cheapskate/thrifty homeschool mom that month. In the Tampa area, they have a thing called "Swaptember" where if you have a membership to one of those three places, you can go to the other two for free during the month of September. We went to the science museum the first week of September...and then crammed in those last two in the last week of September. Had to get my money's worth.
Best thing: since I bought my membership in September, it is good through the end of the following September, so we can do it again next year without spending a dime!
This post brought to you by the end of Daylight Savings Time which has all my little ones going to sleep at a reasonable hour. For tonight at least.
