Well as you know we have 3 birthday’s to celebrate in February so we always have an awesome celebration.
This year was a little different. We started out with no plan but a direction and then we made a plan and then halfway through the plan we changed it! So it was a great day that we weren’t sure how it was going to turn out.
We started at the Health Museum in Houston. None of us have ever been there and we wanted to see what it was all about.
Disclaimer: I have to say that this museum is small and doesn’t have a ton of exhibits, but it was awesome.
The first thing you do when you walk in is go through a big mouth! You end up traveling all through the body and learning how it works.
who knew teeth made awesome chairs?
Don’t get squashed!
Then we traveled into the heart and go to experience how it worked. You got to put the liver in the bod, and compare a healthy lung to an unhealthy lung.
Jillian kept calling them apples!
The giant size body parts were amazing and neat for the kids!
Check out the brains on that baby!

They had this one room where you went into and screamed. It would tell you what kind of animal you screamed like. Veronica screamed like an elephant and I screamed like a garbage truck. I was totally shocked that Jillian got inside the room alone and did it also, of course she didn’t scream that loud.
hubster screamed the loudest of us all!
After we explored out body we got to look at the germs that live all around us.

Extra! Extra! Read All About it!!
One of the exhibits was to learn about your heredity. So we took a test about our inherited traits and compared them with everyone else who had taken the same quiz at the museum. Matka had 247 people like her. Veronica and Danielle both had 7 people like them. Hubster felt pretty unique with only 5 people sharing his traits, but your favorite blogger had ZERO people like her of the 726K that had taken the test! I really am special!
Finding out how special we are!
Jillian loved doing the brain games located in the middle of the museum
After a fun time at the museum, we were hungry so we headed to our favorite place for lunch when we are in the big city!
It’s always a celebration at the spaghetti warehouse!
Veronica had a happy plate!
Next we headed back to the North side of town and enjoyed ice cream. At this point we didn’t really know what we were looking for we just knew it was an adventure!
So we had ice cream cones and made wishes in fountains.

Jilly said “I just want to dance!”
While dancing in the flowers and hunting adventures we saw that Frozen was playing next door. So we said “Why not?”
It was the birthday weekend that started out without a plan, but turned into a wonderful day.
