Need Energy!

April 11th, 2006

While visiting the Lawrence Hall of Science, Jennifer reminded us of the importance of food for producing energy.

As we traveled around the Lawrence Hall of Science, the girls engaged themselves in the displays and interactive exhibits. As time wore on, though, Jennifer became increasingly less interested and more moody. Was she tired? Was the bored? We were almost done. Would we be able to get through it all? I glanced at my watch and noticed the time. 11:45 a.m. Hmmm. I leaned over to Mike.

“I think someone needs lunch,” I said. He nodded.

We left the museum with a cranky 7-year-old who, on the way out of the museum to the car, complained fiercely about the cold weather. After a picnic lunch in the car, we returned to the museum. This time, Jennifer joyfully ran from the car to the museum. Although the temperature had not changed, it was no longer cold outside to Jennifer and she spend the another 2 hours in the museum, mostly in the outdoor part.

What a difference a little energy food can do!
