Although we were a bit weary from our unexpected long and eventful day yesterday, we had to return our rental, so back into the city we went. After returning the rental, we went to the Science Museum, also free. Although parking is $10, our reciprocal museum membership got us free parking this time.

|It was a true family team effort to put this arch together.|
|Linda was determined to put this together, and Jake was equally determined to tear it down!|
|This was taken at a traffic light heading to the arch.|

|I wish we had more time to spend on the grounds.|
When we arrived at the bottom again, Steve had to run back to feed the meter because we didn't have enough time left on it for the kids to finish up their Junior Ranger badges. The Park Ranger that gave them their badges did a great job asking questions and reinforcing what they learned. I love it when they do that; it really helps them remember.
We still had to boogy back to the truck, but this time, it started just fine, and we got to make good on that promise of dinner out. :) A much better ending to the day indeed!!
