Thought I would do these post in segments to help organize it a bit. We went out of town for almost 2 solid weeks… visiting Ohio to see the Creation Museum. Yes… its a long way to go… honestly not sure Id do it again haha… If we had a re-do Id prob. go to the beach or something instead… but our kids really wanted to go and since Kids are FREE all year right now, I figured this was the year to do it. Also the hotel we stayed at gave us two free adult passes (good for 2 days), so the entire visit to the museum was free. So you can’t beat that. Still, long drive. We headed that way 5pm on Sunday 2 weeks ago :) – after Travis got home from work. We arrive in Ohio at 1:30am!! ridiculous lol. We then had to make up a pack-n-play and then set up a sleeper sofa… as there was a bit of confusion with the hotel room situation. Lets just say the following day I felt like a mom with a newborn who needed sleep badly :) – we pressed on and saw part of the museum the 1st day… the rest the 2nd day. Truth be told. This museum is not meant for small kids. Its way to involved and if you go with kids under 7, you will miss a lot. Caleb was the only one really interested in reading during the museum… the other boys just wanted to rush through to see the dinosaurs. Its ok tho. We spent time together and had fun at the hotel pool, etc… Here are some photos…
We have no idea why Reed raises his hands during photos. Its so cute tho :)
He was a bit scared of the raptor :) – do you blame him?
I found the bug part of the museum fascinating. Although I hate bugs!
When I look at the bugs, I see so many amazing differences in them… such detail. God is so amazing. I have had a few people mention to me how they would never go to this museum because they do not believe in the “NEW EARTH” thing. Thats a huge debate right now. Is our world NEW or OLD… Has it been here for 1,000′s or millions? Its something believers and unbelievers constantly go at each other on… and honestly even Christians vs. Christians go at each other in regards to who is right and who is wrong….
I think we serve an amazing God. A God who created each of us unique… A God who formed this world and every detail…. I do not believe we came from an explosion or evolved from apes or tiny cells. Got breathed into us life and I believe the Bible for exactly what it says.
I don’t know how old the earth is… but honestly I think so often believers get hung up on these facts and “things” that it does nothing more than cause divides. Im completely for educating one self… I for one am not smart enough to understand it all :) – I leave that for the PHD peeps and scholars who can grasp things I can’t. However… If my best friend believed the earth was a million years old and I believe it was 1,000′s of years old… it would be ok. As long as she had a belief in Christ… and who he was and what he did for us… and lived according to the scriptures… I could care less if she believe we lived in an OLD earth. I want my loved ones to know Christ. Not the age of our world…
Any how, thats my lil soap box.
Will post more vacation photos eventually :) Off to the pool now!
