Spring break

Hint: There's nothing free to do in Houston...

Hey y’all!

It’s Spring Break for the kiddos this week, which is why I’ve been away from the interwebs.

We’ve slept in…

Foraged the house for snacks…

And even made it out to the zoo…

Well, I should say we ended up at the zoo. The zoo was not our original destination. We had planned on going to the Museum of Natural Science, but since every school district in the Greater Houston and surrounding areas are ALSO on Spring Break this week, and the zoo, Children’s Museum, Fine Arts Museum (now showing King Tut) and Natural Science Museum are all conveniently located in what’s cleverly referred to as the museum district, which is conveniently located right next to the Houston Medical Center (home of Ben Taub Trauma Center, Texas Children’s, M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, and pretty much every other kind of hospital you can think of), parking close enough to the Natural Science Museum was not in the cards. After going down 8 flights of stairs of a parking garage and walking several blocks (and still several blocks away from the museum), we spotted the Houston Zoo. After a quick vote, we opted for the zoo.

Honestly? I pretty much asked this question at every animal exhibit we passed.

Friday is the last day of Spring Break, and the one vote against the zoo, the person whose idea it was to go to the Natural Science Museum in the first place will get her wish. Since we now know what a horrible, impossible nightmare parking will be, we are planning to drive to downtown Houston, where we will catch a ride to the museum district on the MetroRail, or what I affectionately refer to as the Boondoggle Express.

Remind me to rant incessantly about what a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money this train system is.

Until next week, stay out of trouble and I’ll try and do the same. But if I don’t, I’ll tell you all about it when I get back. Have a great weekend!

    Is that an albino alligator?

    What’s with the spacey train? Where have all the cowboys gone?

    (I reckon we can play 20 questions when you get back. Or at least 3 questions.)

    Blessings.
