Today we went to the Franklin Institute. What a great museum:) First we went and saw stuff having to do with the body. We walked through a huge heart, saw how muscles worked and learned about blood and plasma. The kids enjoyed crawling through the artery (picture below.) Next we went to see the trains. Nicholas even got to be the "conductor" on the train ride. We also got to see two different kinds of airplanes. One was a fighter jet that was hanging from the ceiling that Chad and the boys got to go into. Nicholas even got to make a piece of paper. It was such an interesting day with so much to see and do and we didn't even come close to seeing it all. The boys had a lot of fun and learned a few things as well. I would highly recomend if you've never been.

Jacob didn't want to come out.

Chad and I have been together for over 10 years and married for 8. We have 2 boys. Nicholas is 6 and in 1st grade. He LOVES Star Wars especially Darth Vader. Jacob is 4 and is in preschool. He loves anything his big brother loves. He is very funny. Chad just started a new job as an Engineer working in the semi-conductor (nano technology) industry. He is also in the Army reserve. I am a stay at home mom and I love being home with my boys. They bring me such great joy.
