We arrived at the Museum of Natural History close to 12:00PM and were welcomed by a long, very long line to get in. Strollers and women with killer spikes on galore! We headed off in our lage group starting off on the first floor...mistake!!! We should have started off on the 4th floor...DINOSAURS! Well needless to say the natives were getting restless. There is only so many stuffed dead animals in their natural habitats that you can see with a bunch of 9-ish year olds (there was a 7 year old and a 12 year old too). We split into 2 groups...me in one group :) and the rest in another. They head to an IMAX movie about dinosaurs and I headed to the butterfly conservatory. Needless to say both could have been avoided completely. Both were extra money and both were not worth the xtra $$. While I was on my own I hit the 2nd floor to see the main lobby area that included this dinosaur...Pretty overwhelming standing underneath this monster. Can you just picture yourself in a field with this standing over you and no where to run...YIKES!!!
After finally getting our wits about us...we headed to the 4th floor to see the saurs! Graydon snapped this pic of me curiously enjoying this dinosaurs rear-end...what's wrong with me?

Needless to say this is what I will be up against this week amongst several other projects I have to do. I plan on recovering the seat with new batting, foam and material...which by the way the seat is out in the driveway airing out. I also think I need to put some kind of sealer on it because as much as I scrub I keep pulling out what I thought was dirt (it was in the beginning) but now I think it is old finish and stain. I even have the material in my stash of fabric to cover the seat. All I have to buy is the foam and batting, oh and fake leather if I plan on fixing the back. I think a nice comfy pillow for the back and were are in business!!! Yahoo!!! I even found an ottoman for $49.00 at Home Goods that should match...if not I'll recover that too!
Tomorrow we are off to New York City with some friends and their girls. It should be a GREAT time!! Graydon has been jonesing to go for a long time so I think we are going to hit the Museum of Natural History, Empire State Building, China Town and Little Italy. Maybe a few stores in between!! I'm sure I'll have stories to tell when we get home. Which also reminds me of our horrible Valentine's dinner story I need to share with you. It's a doozy!
That will be another post all in itself!

I have been experiencing problems with the lighting in my lightbox. I want a true white background and seem to not be able to do it. If anyone out there in blogland has any tips for me I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you!
