Fast Cars and five kids.....

Fast cars and five kids...I think it would make for a great name for a reality series. Well, maybe not, but it is how I spent my day yesterday. The temperature here has been over 100 degrees the last few days so we have been looking for indoor fun...and we found it. I took the kids to the auto museum and we had a blast. Me included! The air conditioning was on and there was lots of fun stuff to see, but no touching allowed so we worked very hard to keep Kendall contained in her stroller. Good thing, otherwise the pretty, shiny, clean cars would be covered in finger prints and of course face prints! I had a good time taking pictures and the kids were good sports and even let me get a few shots of them.

....remember the Flintstones?

There were so many cars. Cars from movies, cars from TV shows, and cars with personality. Cars from Ghostbusters to Back to the Future and Herbie to our favorite Lightning McQueen.

Wow! These kids were able to see those cars? I have to admit, even I feel envious of them. I wanted to see the Flintstones car in person, but I guess I to settle with the pictures for now.

Oh my! If I brought my niece here, who knows what wouldl happen to these cars! And I thought I would never see the Mach 5 and Fred Flintstone's car for real. Looking at them sure brings back some memories.

I envy you guys. I've been longing to go to a place like that with my kids so they can see replicated vehicles. But it seems there's nothing like it near our place. The kids seem to be having the "rides" of their lives. =)

Oh cool! Your kids are so lucky because they got to see the Flintstone’s car, Herbie, Lightning Mcqueen and other awesome cars. I love the photos you took of the cars. You really brought out their colors and the excellent craftsmanship behind every vehicle.
