Pic of the Week

The weekend

Yesterday we went to the Tech Museum in San Jose. Jeremy's been looking forward to going there. We were running late and managed to leave without the camera-I'm still kicking myself for that one. If we were going to miss pics at a museum though, this was probably the one, since most of the exhibits were geared toward older kids and even adults. We had fun. Rinnah's favorite part was the escalator. Ian liked the MPG simulator where he got to drive a car, and the magnetic shape blocks. I just wish we could have gotten the pics of the kids interacting with their grandparents, because it was really precious.

We made it to church again today. Jeremy's parents attend a really awesome church. The worship is so vibrant and the music reminds us a lot of the churches we'd visit with the gospel choir we sang in back in college. The speaking has also been really good. Unfortunately, the one thing that hasn't been good is the nursery. Last week Rinnah was turned away because they were full, but we arrived late so we figured it was our fault. Today we got there a good 15 minutes before the service even started (a major achievement for us) but Rinnah was turned away again because a nursery worker hadn't come in so they were short-staffed. This morning though, Jeremy's mom was sweet and took Rinnah to the overflow room so Jeremy and I could enjoy the service without having to worry about taking care of her. And last week Rinnah was just amazingly well-behaved during the service, so it has mostly worked out. I think we're going to have to give up on attending the service with Jeremy's parents though, since the nursery is in such high-demand and we don't get home until 1:30 when we attend that service, which is really pushing the kids' naps. The service is very good though, so we don't want to go to a different church. We'll make it work.

We had such a nice week this past week, visiting with Katy and Peter, spending some evenings over with Jeremy's parents, and doing the museum on Saturday. I guess now I have to come back to real life and catch up on some cleaning and laundry before we go out on too many more field trips!
