The big 2-4

My birthday was really fun yesterday! It started with rolling out of bed at 7:50am for my 8:15am class and almost missing my quiz. Luckily, I didn't miss it and got a 9 out of 10, which started off the day well. When I came home from class, Scott had a delicious Slurpy (sp) waiting for me because they are my favorite. Then he bought me some Quiznos for lunch, another favorite. After that I decided I just wanted to do something low key that we could do with Hannah, so we went to the Dinosaur Museum in Lehi. It's been years since I've been to a museum like that. The cost was $9.50 a person and I must admit, it really was not worth the cost but I'm still grateful we were able to do it just this once (and probably never again until our kids are older). We were only there for about an hour, but it was amazing to see the different fossils. I can't believe these things actually lived on the earth. I've got to be honest with you, I don't know how the whole dinosaur thing fit in with the Earth's creation. Were they here when humans were? Science has it's theories, but who really knows for sure?
Scott getting eaten by a raptor.
Hannah hanging out with a dino.
If you look closely, you can see the T-Rex in the background. I definitely wouldn't want that thing running at me. It has huge teeth.
Hannah and I are scared of Jaws(thank goodness that's not a real fossil because those things actually still exist, which is why I get scared sometimes to swim in the ocean). They had some extremely scary fossils of sea creatures, though, that were real. I've never seen anything like it. If I saw something like those in the ocean, I think I would faint.
Something that's actually alive!! Hannah really liked looking at the fish.

After the museum, we took Hannah home for a nap. For dinner, we went to P.F. Changs, which made my stomach ache, but it was still delicious. Then we walked around the mall for a little bit and looked for a swim suit for me, but no luck. We came home after that and put Hannah to bed, got some ice cream, and watched a movie. It was a great birthday and I'm lucky to have such a wonderful husband who would take a day off of work for me and do the things that I wanted to do.

Happy Birthday! Sounds like a fun day. As for the whole dinosaur thing, my belief is that they were here before man. God created the animals/creatures etc before he put man on the earth. Each day in the seven days of creation were more like hundreds of years per day. God's time is different than ours. Does that make sense? Anyway, that's just my thoughts, I haven't really looked into it though. I'm glad you had a great's lonely not sharing our birthdays together. I'll call you on Sunday.

What a fun day and such a sweet family. You have a wonderful husband who loves you dearly. You are first on his priority list. I've been to that museum and it was fun in the "digging area" where the kids dig in the sand for bone fossils. We got a deal from Angela, I think, who worked there at the time. Miss being with you guys on your birthdays. It just doesn't feel right. Love ya Mom
