You Wouldn't Believe It
Check out this picture!! Can you believe it!?! Ok, so I didn't actually meet Johnny Depp, but I got to hang out with his wax double. I guess it's the next best thing. Today we went to the Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum which also houses a wax museum and house of mirrors. First we went into the Ripley's part and the girls really didn't like that. I thought the museum was a lot of fun and interesting but the girls just thought the whole thing was scary. Emma kept saying "take me to the exit". I guess through a child's eye a statue of the tallest man or the guy who had a horn out the back of his head may be a little creepy. When we finished there we went into the wax museum. That was a lot of fun and less scary for the girls. They still were a little creeped out with the wax people and wouldn't go near any of them, but at least they weren't near tears the whole time. The funniest part was when we went to the hall of presidents and I told Emma that's where we were and she asked where president Hinkley was. She is too cute. She saw Dr Phil and said "mom, that guy looks like Dr Phil. She also took one look at the wax Jesus and said "they didn't do him very good". I guess he didn't look like the Jesus she knows. Last we headed over to the house of mirrors. It was pretty dark in there even though the pictures are lighted by the flash. The girls had a great time in there and me and Dan had a great time laughing at Hannah for running in the mirrors head on again and again.
