It’s time once again for some Friday fill-in fun, the perfect way to wrap up the week and kick off the weekend! 

From Ann of McGuffy’s Reader:

“The Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by myself. We try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please come back, link up, and share your thoughts!”

And away we go! Here are this week’s statements with my fill-ins:

1. The most interesting museum I have been to is… Oh, that’s easy! The Academy of Natural Sciences, affectionately known as the “Dinosaur Museum” in Philadelphia:

Princess Nagger chose to have a couple of birthday celebrations there, since she announced when she was 4 that she was going to grow up to be a Paleontologist. In February of 2011, the museum was having a , where Princess Nagger actually got to meet the famous Paleontologist that she had seen on many of her favorite dinosaur shows on National Geographic, Dr. Philip Manning:

I do believe she denoted that as the best day ever. She also got to listen to  (of Dinosaur Train fame) do his presentation about dinosaurs, as well as see three Dinosaur Train episodes on the big screen.

One of these days we’d love to get to the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

2. The most interesting historical place I have been to is… This one’s a little more difficult to answer, because having lived in a wonderfully historic area in Pennsylvania, we got to go to many interesting historical places. Whenever my sister and her family would come visit from Iowa, we’d do all the tourist-y things going to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Virginia, and of course various historical places within Pennsylvania.

And of course when we’d go visit in Iowa, they’d return the favor on doing tourist-y stuff and visiting cool historical places. Probably one of my favorite places, though, was on our cross-country trip/vacation, we took the kids to Mt. Rushmore – I bet they would agree it’s one of the family favorites:

3. Prison Break is back!

I loved that show when it was on, and was sad when it ended in 2009, so I was happy to see it got resurrected. Granted, it’s only a 9-episode return, but it’s nice that it’s back.

Of course I haven’t watched the episodes that have aired yet, I’m waiting for an opportunity to binge-watch…heh! I wonder if that’s one of the reasons the ratings are dropping each week, because there are too many of us out there  that want to savor this moment…

4. I was surprised… That the hubby has been mandated to a 6-week liquid diet after having one wisdom tooth and two molars extracted last week on the same side. Seems a bit extreme to me, the poor guy is going crazy not being able to eat real food! Let’s hope the 6 weeks go by super fast…better start blinking rapidly!

Now it’s time to Celebrate the Small Things! I’m joining in this fun blog hop to join some awesome bloggy friends and meet new ones – click on the badge for more information and if you’d like to play along, too!

I’m celebrating that this week is less inundated with having to drive all over kingdom come, and I can enjoy time at home for once! Of course that doesn’t mean I’m making time to unpack more boxes, I’ve been trying to get caught up on my blogging, though I’m seriously swimming upstream right now. But it’ll get done – and you’ll get visits when you least expect it! 

That’s a wrap! Hope you join in the fun! Check out the other Friendly Fill-Ins participants and join in if you feel the urge for some fun!

  1. The dinosaur museum looks interesting! I’ve never been to Gettysburg or Mount Rushmore, but those are places I’d like to see. Mount Rushmore looks really nice in your picture.

  2. Any week that doesn’t have tons of driving is a winner, i’ll let you know when i get to one.

    Nice answers on the fill-ins!

  3. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. That is so cool that Princess Nagger wants to be a paleontologist and what a neat idea for a party. My little great niece loves dinosaur train and has since she was about 9 months old, I would have thought they seemed scary at that age.
    A liquid diet for 6 weeks is a very long time. When my niece had her 4 wisdom teeth removed, she was able to eat solids after about a week.
    I have never been to Mt. Rushmore, but that would be fun. I am glad you got to have a family trip to there.
    Have a nice weekend!

  4. If you ever get the chance, check out the Field Museum in Chicago. That is the museum I grew up with. That is also where Sue is (the famous T-Rex). They are preparing to open the Jurassic World. I am a dinosaur fan, so I want to go!

    We went to Mt. Rushmore in 1981, when we lived and traveled in an old van. It was amazing.

    I hope Fox brings back X-Files! They really teased us in 2015! *geez*

    I hope hubby heals fast. And that everyone survives it! Hugs!

  5. Why won’t they let your hubby eat? I had all four wisdom teeth removed at one time and they didn’t tell me to have a liquid diet for that long. It was only for the first few days. How odd!

    How blessed you are to have grown up in such an historic area! I was blessed that way, too. It is great fun to learn about the history of the area in which you live, especially when you know the area is steeped in your family’s history, too. There are over 300 years of my family’s history back in South Carolina…and some of them came down South from Pennsylvania, too.

    Does your daughter still plan to be a paleontologist? Our oldest daughter is in an anthropology/archeology program at the university and enjoys it very much. She didn’t so much enjoy the time she had to spend with a relatively fresh dead cadaver, though. She said that was pretty gross.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  6. My kids would love that dinosaur museum!! We have a pretty good one in Ottawa – just down the road from us. I’ve never seen Mt Rushmore – that would quite a sight. But I have been to Philly quite a bit and I loved every visit. I love being around all that history.
