OMG! Don why?!?!

So our day started out awesome. Papa Bear and I got the kids up early to head out the door for a surprise trip to Richmond. We can get in free to museums on the ASTC Passport Program list....

First stop on the itinerary was the Virginia Aviation Museum.....
                                          there were planes and stuff there.....

The kids and Papa had a wonderful time!
I discovered that I could care less about aviation and anyone who knows my terrible fear of heights will understand why.....
However we discovered something pretty darn cool in the far back corner....
                                           A tribute to the pilots and all who lost their lives on
                                                               September 11th.....
There was a slideshow of pictures from the moments after the attack and also a tribute to the pilots who lost their lives.....
                                           very moving and unexpected.....

Kung Fu had so much fun playing with all the flight simulators and there were a few to try...this one lets you fly the model plane.....

Maybe we have an aspiring pilot on our hands???
After the Aviation Museum we headed over to the Virginia Science Museum......
                                        having a blast before they even walked through the door...

It's an old railroad station that's been converted into a museum....it was fantastic!
                                                                      yay it's me!

everything is extremely child friendly and hands on....I don't recall having to tell them not to touch anything...total win!
                                                there was an astronomy section....
                                           a traveling exhibit.....
 And an entire floor devoted just to kids.....we spent 2 hours there following the kids around and playing at all the family friendly stations....

                                          Kung Fu and Papa....buds forever.

Of course no trip is complete until they commit petty larceny in the museum shop. Kung Fu got a really awesome wind up toy that I'll pry out of his grimy fingers tomorrow and photograph....Stuffie got a stuffie.
                                                             papa helped her pick it out....

I got a super duper solar system that we're going to hang up tomorrow in lieu of making the ballon solar system that was scheduled in for science this week...I just felt like the plastic one will last longer and I HATE, LOATHE, DESPISE balloons....a lot.
I also got taken out for supper......
                                            come to Mama......

So sounds like the perfect day....right? Except look at what was in my mailbox when we got home tonight....
                                            I want to kick Don in the soft spot! HARD!

Why he added delivery conformation to my Early American Trades and Crafts Kit is a mystery. Only Don knows why he does the moronic crap he does but I really despise him for it! You can't imagine what it's like for me to have to go to the post office and pick a package up. There's like 3 post offices in our city and the line is always out the door. Just the thought of waiting on line for an hour to pick up these boxes that I've been waiting 3 weeks for is making my eye twitch.  Don has sent me $1000 worth of school books in several shipments these past 5 months and NOT ONE OF THEM had delivery conformation...CURSE YOU DON!!! I despise you......

I'll hold him down. Lol. The one time he even attempted to give me a ship date he lied by 3 weeks. Such a loser.
