Today we went to the Prairie Fire Museum. Sue was able to go with us since she got this whole week off. That’s amazing, really. 2 nurses getting a week off together is rare. It can be hard for a nurse to get vacation. But it is cool that Monkey will be able to spend a lot of time with his mom. And well that’s why we’re here.
Sue drove today. Well, I took us to Sue’s house and then we all piled into her van and she did the driving from there. Monkey apparently had planned to go to another museum as well as this one but we ran out of time. Apparently he wanted to go to the other one more. >.< I feel bad that it didn’t work out that way. I wish I could give him more time. But these are the kinds of trips that you fill every minute up no matter how long you have.
We got to the museum a bit early but that was OK because they had an outdoor part to look at. In the parking lot, on the wall out, there was a really fun mural. It was surprising to see because Maine doesn’t do that sort of thing. At least no that I’ve ever seen. There was an area that went around plaques to read about the Prairie. It was interesting but I think I have forgotten every bit of it already. I feel like there has been more information then my head can hold! But it has been fun to do this stuff. Better then just sitting in her living room talking every day, all day. She is fun to talk with, but there is a point when I just have to move and I start to get antsy. No amount of medication can change that. So, going places has been good. Keeps me moving.
Inside the museum, there are 2 areas. One area has mostly dinosaurs. There was also a small area about the island with all the horses (Sable?). This stuff was fun but the other area was an exhibit about the human brain. It was really well done. I didn’t learn anything new, but it was still an impressive exhibit. There was a ton of information and really great displays. I took a bunch of photos. I didn’t get pictures of us in the exhibit for the most part. Monkey and Dragon really don’t like their picture being taken. So, I try not to get too crazy about taking photos of them. But I did take a few of them.
After the museum, we went to a little noodle shop. It was strange. It had a fairly small menu, but it was a varied menu. It had mac and cheese, Japanese pan fried noodles, spaghetti and sauce, chicken noodle soup… It was weird, but the food was really good. It is a good place if there are people with different food wants.
After the noodle place, we went to a gaming store. That is always a place that is dangerous for us to go! We did buy some stuff there. Surprised? You shouldn’t be! >.< Monkey didn’t get anything though. It is frustrating that he is not buying anything. I’m not sure why he isn’t. I feel guilty because I suspect he isn’t buying stuff so that Dragon and I can spend more. That’s sweet, in a way. But it isn’t cool. Neither of us want Monkey to do that.
After the game store, we came back to the hotel. We hung out for a while and played some video games briefly, but we were all tired and crashed out quickly. That’s too bad because Monkey was playing Alien Isolation which Dragon and I really enjoy watching. It is an amazing game. But I just fell asleep sitting there. Now I’m done for the day and going to be for real.
