I must look (or be) crazy!

So I started planning a playgroup for my new ward.  Our activity today was to go downtown to the Church History Museum.  We thought it would be fun to take Flint's train (Trax).  It was kind of fun because we could lounge out.  Joren could be a monkey and Brenner could lay down because he was so sleepy.

The church history museum was fun.  The boys love taking care of the babies.  They also love the scavenger hunts that the museum has that you can go on.


Okay, so here's the real part of my story.  I was hungry.  There is a JB's on the corner.  So I hauled the kids in there to eat lunch.  When it was time to go, my waitress told me that someone had paid for my lunch.  That was really sweet of some random stranger to do that for me.  But all I can think of is that I must look like some crazy lady dragging these three really wild boys around with me everywhere.

Wow! That was so nice!
It's probably just because you and your boys are so cute...
That happened once when my mission companion and I thought we'd treat ourselves to Red Lobster with birthday money and a member of the Church was eating there as well. We felt quite embarrassed. Not every day missionary faire, right?

Was someone feeling sorry for you, thinking you were poor? My guess is they just enjoyed watching you and your boys, and wanted to do a good deed.
Cute pictures of the boys, and sounds like you had fun.

That is pretty cool!

That's the first thing I thought...that person must have felt sorry for her juggling all those kids!

That warms my heart! I think someone was just trying to do something nice for you and your cute little family! Riding Traxs sounds like a fun thing to do. Do you have a Trax train station near your house? I love the Church History Museum Children's area.

That's an awesome story. I think I read one similar to that in the ensign some time ago. You should submit it anyways.
