No Teenagers!

Now that Thomas has had his 20th birthday, I no longer have any teenagers in the house, for another few years, anyway. In about five and a half years I'll have two at the same time. Yikes!

We celebrated at a restaurant in Gilford which used to be called Peking Tokyo, but is now called Taipei Osaka. Still the same management and great food, though. Thomas wanted sushi, and the boys like Chinese food, so there was something to suit everyone's tastes. In this picture, Tom is showing off his squid, which the chef actually laid on the plate in the shape of a squid!

I didn't get the chance to finish the story of the trip to the Museum of Science. We were on our way to the very last thing we were intending to do, a window where you can look in on the area where the keep the live animals. We were waiting by the elevator to go up from the basement to the first floor (from which you have to go down a flight of stairs to the basement to get to the window) when someone from the museum asked us what we were looking for, and we told him.

The gentleman motioned us to a "Staff Only" door and led us down a corridor. I thought he was showing us a shortcut. But he knocked on a door and asked the young lady who opened it if it was a good time to take a tour. And so we got to see the animals close up! Danny was thrilled! It was a great way to end a very exciting trip.
