I wouldn't take my family to a museum b/c they aren't excited by that idea, and when they get there they don't enjoy it. I would rather take my close friend who enjoys museums like me!

Wendy Lindsey on August 11, 2013 at 8:25 PM said...

Do we have to say we'd take the family to a museum? We love museum's but that wouldn't be that out of the norm for us. I'd probably use it to buy a Costco membership which would help us dearly! Hope that's an ok thing to say! lol

I went to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago years ago. Where I live now, there isn't much in the way of museums. There is one that I have been meaning to visit with my daughter but it is difficult to find a time to go.

If I won the Amex prize I would use it to buy my daughter a pair of shoes and new socks. She is always out-growing them.

I'd have to find one close by to get in with that. I should know where one is anyway.

Jennifer Speed on September 11, 2013 at 9:40 PM said...
