Today I took the kids to the Cincinnati Museum Center. If you're ever in the Cincinnati area, it's definitely a place to check out!
Anyway, in the natural history part of the museum, there is a cave complex. It's supposed to look like the Mammoth Caves of Kentucky. My kids love this section, because it's dark, and the pathways are narrow and winding. There are also lots of cracks and crevices and secret places to hide.
My kids must've been in the Halloween spirit, because they decided it would be cool to make ghost noises as we wandered through that place. (I'm sure the other visitors were wondering what the heck was going on when they heard their mysterious sounds echoing through the caverns.)
They ran ahead, darting in and out of the shadows. Then I lost them. "Hey, where are you guys?" I called.
I walked on farther. I passed one of those cracks and crevices. And guess what happened? Out jumped my kids! "Boo!" they shouted.
I nearly had a heart attack. "What are you trying to do? Turn me into a ghost?"
They gave me an evil laugh and continued with their scary ghost sounds.
