10 Commandments and Dead Sea Scrolls

Today, Zachary, Chris, my sister Elizabeth (or Aunty Lizzy, as she is more commonly called), and I all went to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) to see the final day of the 10 Commandments exhibit and the Dead Sea Scrolls. We got there at 10am (after discovering that Yonge St. was closed down for a race..grrrrrr!) and headed off to the Dead Sea Scrolls and the 10 Commandments. The line-ups were HUGE, but it was an amazing experience to get to stand in the presence of God's word, written so long ago, that has stood the test of time.

Both the 10 Commandments and Dead Sea Scrolls were literally ripped pieces of parchment with Hebrew writing on them, but their history and their meaning came through, loud and clear!! As a Christian, their significance in my life, and in history, is awe-inspiring.

Chris carried Zachary in the front carrier. He used to HATE it and scream and kick and yell when I put him in it, but he suddenly has grown fond of it. I think it's because he is at eye-level with all those big people that usually stand over top of him! Plus, he had Aunty Lizzy to keep him occupied..she's his favourite girl! Unfortunetly, I forgot to get a picture of Zach and Chris...bah! It really was cute! However, I got a ton of pictures of Zachary in his stroller, which he was also an angel in, after we had our lunch. He missed the entire dinosaur exhibit, but I doubt he minded:) He needed his little cat-nap!

In all, Zachary lasted about 4 hours at the ROM with almost no fussing. He got one full feeding, a cat nap while we looked at the dinosaurs, a throw-up on daddy because he was bouncing him around (that's my boy), and a whole lot of culture. It made me realize how much my baby boy has grown up. It was only a few months ago that I tried to take him to IKEA and he screamed and yelled and fussed the entire time. He's come a long way!

And when we pulled into our driveway, after a long day out, here's what we found...my favourite kind of baby:)

    I am so glad that you went to the ROM & took Zachary! What a wonderful opportunity for him to take in the history of our faith!
    The pictures are great! Aunt Lizzy is always a hit with Zach!
