01/01/2016 | The Leonardo

When your husband gets home from work late and your kids stayed up way too late trying to celebrate new years, you throw caution to the wind and wake them up and take them to breakfast at Mcdonalds in your pajamas. 

I was sure that I would be paying for this today, especially after Steve went to bed, but the kids were great. The last few days we've been sick and cooped up in the house so I decided it was a good opportunity to get out of the house. We all concluded that a trip to the museum would be a good way to start this year.
We haven't been to the Leonardo in a while, and I kind of thought it wouldn't been too busy (which it wasn't) so it turned out to be the perfect choice today. They had all new exhibits to play with.
Will was in heaven being able to put things together and take them apart using a "ranch" as he calls them.
Charlie was happy as a clam just being able to crawl around after us everywhere we went. 
Surprisingly Will made it to about 11:00 watching Phineas and Ferb episodes on Netflix (we are totally crazy around here). After I put him to bed I dozed off on the couch and was awoken by fireworks my neighbors were setting off at midnight. Katy was asleep too, of course, but I wouldn't be surprised if she made it to nearly midnight. I just can't resist ringing in the new year without a good party blower and hat. 
McDonalds was totally packed and the play land was especially so with older gentlemen. Everytime a new one would come join the group they would call out his name, it was like watching an episode of Cheers. And the cute worker kept checking on them every 5-10 minutes to make sure no one needed a refill of coffee. I'm sure they thought we were crazy when we were using Steve's apple watch to take family self timer shots propped up on Katy's robe of course. I'm sure Charlie is still trying to figure out if we really are this crazy, but hopefully he knows the answer to that by now is a resounding YES!
