Life is full of unexpected bonuses! The key to me seems to be to follow your whims, embrace it all and quietly expect that the amazing will unfold :)
Last Friday we spent the night at the Museum of Natural History, which was awesome!
A truly magical night was topped by the carnivorous dinosaur that came to life, delighting everyone - yours truly every bit as much as the Aliens and inspiring me to go extravagantly large on puppets if and when we make season two of The Squirrel King.
But the unexpected bonus was the prize for the scavenger hunt - flashlights! An invaluable aide in reading a bedtime story to the musk-ox, they will reappearance in the coming weeks when we use them to ... double as Paul's headlights in the miniature driving sequence we've been prepping :)
PS. Kira and Nicholas, thanks so much for the invite!!
