t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
A Night at the Museum
We had a fantastic time at the museum on Friday. It was fun to be whisked around as a mock celebrity. My girls were excited because we had gold VIP wristbands (as opposed to white) what could be cooler? Ray Grant, the man running the show, was so kind and attentive. The museum staff loved the Cap Trappers. They were so excited they are putting them everywhere they use markers in the museum as well as the gift shop.
It is a wonderful exhibit. I recommend it to anyone in the Salt Lake City area. Your children will love making the fog horns, and wearing the goofy inventor glasses! The Deseret News interviewed me and so maybe we will have a little publicity there.
I had to take a picture of the strewn marker cap on the ground and these disasterous markers. The museum needs cap trappers! And they knew it too.
